ONCE AGAIN ACTIVISTS SHOW THEY ARE THE WORSE ENEMIES OF SHELTER DOGS

These "activists" are the most cruel and hateful beings I have ever encountered. First they pulled dogs from Devore and abandoned them to the point of starving almost to death. Now they are employing tactics of transporting dogs to the unknown.


ON OCTOBER 2010 ROCCO WAS PULLED FROM DEVORE ANIMAL SHELTER...ROYCE PULLED HIM UNDER HER NAME..IT WAS ONE OF  OUR FIRST RESCUES  HER AND I DID TOGETHER...ROCCO HAD AN APPROVED ADOPTER..DAWN HANBY THE PERSON WHO WORKED WITH LA RESCUERS WAS FLYING THEIR DOGS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY....DAWN HANBY ENDED UP DENYING ADAM ROCCO WHEN HE GOT T0  THE AIRPORT TO PICK HIM UP....ADAM WAS TOLD ROCCO IS A VERY BAD DOG AND HE ATTACKS ALL THE OTHER LITTLE DOGS IN THE CRATES...SO ADAM LEFT WITHOUT ROCCO...THERE IS SO MUCH MORE TO THE STORY..I'M BRIEFLY TOUCHING ON IT...ROCCO WAS TAKEN TO DAWN HANBY'S HOME..THEN SHE TOOK IT UPON HERSELF TO FLY ROCCO TO ATLANTA, GA TO A FAMILY WHO ENDED UP BEING THE SUBJECT OF A ANIMAL CRUELTY CASE...JERRELL KING AND THE VERDELLS (MOM CANDACE) WERE ALSO RESCUING CHI'S OUT OF LA AND KERN COUNTY...I HAD NEVER HEARD OF THEM UNTIL I WAS INFORMED THAT ROCCO MAY BE IN SERIOUS DANGER...I HAVE BEEN ASKING,PLEADING, DEMANDING FOR 1.5 YEARS WITH DAWN HAMBY TO DISCLOSE ROCCO'S WHEREABOUTS I EVEN SENT AC TO HER HOME IN SEATTLE, WASHINGTON TO SEE IF ROCCO WAS THERE AND TO TRY TO GET ROCCO BACK....SHE REFUSED TO TELL US WHERE HE WAS...HER EXACT WORDS WERE YOU WILL NEVER FIND ROCCO...

FRIDAY MAY 25, 2012 1:46 PM 
GEORGIA AC CALLED THIS MORNING AND SAID THEY HAVE A DOG WHO IS CHIPPED TO ROYCE BORDES IN CUSTODY....HE HAS BEEN IN CUSTODY SINCE APRIL...THEY SCANNED HIM THE CHIP DID NOT SHOW UP..SCANNED HIM AGAIN THIS MORNING BEFORE THEY WERE ABOUT TO EUTHANIZE HIM AND HIS CHIP WAS LOCATED...

ROCCO PAID THE PRICE...FOR WHAT DAWN HANBY DECIDED TO DO WITH HIM..IT WAS NOT HER DECISION AND VERY WRONG...ROCCO WAS NOT HERS TO DO WHAT SHE PLEASED WITH...SHE STOLED ROCCO..

WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF GETTING ROCCO ON A PLANE AND FLOWN BACK HOME WHERE HE BELONGS...HE WILL GO STRAIGHT TO THE VET FOR EVALUATION AND TREATMENT..THEN TO MY HOME WHERE HE CAN HEAL BOTH PHYSICALLY AND MENTALL BEFORE BEING PLACED WITH A FOSTER FAMILY UNTIL HE IS RE HOMED..

PLEASE HELP US BRING HIM HOME....HE IS SO DESERVING OF THIS...HUMANS FAILED HIM TWICE..ONCE BY BEING DUMPED IN THE SHELTER...TWICE BY BEING ABUSED...OPEN YOUR HEART AND GIVE WHATEVER YOU CAN SPARE....THERE IS NOT ANY AMOUNT TO SMALL...

HERE IS HIS CHIPIN: http://californiabullycrew.chipin.com/rocco

WHILE YOU ARE AT IT, NOTE ALL THE CHIP INS THAT THEY ARE ASKING FOR. JUST HOW MUCH MONEY CAN ONE DOG MAKE FOR THESE PEOPLE AND IS THIS THE REAL REASON FOR THEIR ACTIVITIES?

The statement that "humans failed him twice" is incorrect. The horrible, crazed self proclaimed "activists" from Devore have failed him twice. And the other dogs. How many dogs have suffered and died at the hands of these "activists"? We may never know but we know enough to venture a guess.

  2. Funny, I just saw this blog, a friend of mine that works in the animal industry call me to tell me about an incident today involving that same lady Royce Borders. She said,. Royce was picking up some animals for transport when the Humane Society showed up. Royce supposedly said, I do not want the Humane Society looking in my Van and took off. She even left some animals at the Vets that she was going to pick up. Why??????? Why is she so afraid of them ??? Isn’t she suppose to treat the animals humanly ??? What is she trying to hide???? Did she have too many in the Van???? Are we allowing these people to get away with murder ???

  3. I'll try to track this down, Anon:10. I have heard the same and from a very credible person. Thanks for posting it.

  4. I was driving by the vets (Dog and Cat General) when I saw a humane society truck parked in front. I had to slam on my brakes when a big white van suddenly BACKED OUT of the vets parking lot. I heard my tires skid, as did the car in the lane next to me. It must have been this Royce person trying to get away. The van drove off at a high rate of speed and made a quick turn towards the freeway. If it was this Royce person, just imagine how she made those poor animals feel, driving like a mad woman. Just imagine if I had not stopped in time and had hit the van. How many animals would have been injured or killed in the accident? If this is how she treats animals she is caring for and transporting, imagine how the rest of the 'trip' will be???

    And so what if the Humane Society showed up, why did she run like a criminal? Was she trying to hide something? Was she doing something illegal? Just by her actions, she appears to be a criminal and the only thing that could be criminal in dealing with animals is abusing them.

    lets see, runs like a criminal when the humane society showed up, transports animals, shouts the loudest about animal shelter, could she actually be abusing the animals and trying to throw the blame somewhere else?????? Like Devore?????

    And if Royce released or adopted Rocco to Dawn Handy, then what interest does Royce have in that dog any longer. Unless she can turn a quick buck off of it again I guess.....

  5. I have seen vans packed as tightly as they can, carriers not sitting level, and you know that no one is unloading all those carriers for potty breaks, food, water, on those trips. It is a 24 hour trip to Canada. Plus who is checking to see if the dogs are vetted? What about ventilation in those tightly packed vans with a lot of heat coming off the animals? All these people think about is outta sight, outta mind, look at me for saving lives. What happens to those lives is anyone's guess but I bet quite a few live a miserable life.

    1. I agree, how many hours must those poor dogs endure in those small cramped cages. Is there adequate ventilation. I'll bet for the driver there is. They can roll down the window, turn on the heat or AC. But think about the poor dogs at the back of the van. No ventilation, no room to move around, just forced to sit in your own piss and shit for hours.

      i know, if you don't give them water to drink or food to eat they just won't shit and piss.

      How cruel can these rescue people be.

      Oh but wait, I forgot it is all about them and the 'everyone look at me' attitude and really to hell with the animals.

      I have a question. How many have died, being subjected to these types of conditions........at the hands or rescue groups / activists????? And for those that have died, are they just thrown out on the side of the road, like trash???

    2. Sorry but I can only say one thing. If that was an animal control truck with all the animals packed these SOB Nkers would have been calling for a press conference, but because is one of their own no one will call to complain. And RB will be back to do it again and again.

  6. I have heard thru the grape vine that Royce Bordes 'rescued' a horse from the Norco Animal Shelter, only to take the horse to Mikes Auction in Mira Loma and run it thru the auction. What I heard was other horse rescue people were at the auction and confirmed the Royce had brought in the horse for auction and confronted her. Now the horse sold and went to a kill buyer, as the rescue people did not have enough $$$ to over bid the kill buyer.

    So, Royce 'saves' a horse, takes it to the auction, and sells it to a kill buyer. Just another example of the 'activist' failing yet another animal.

    I know, they will start another 'chip-in' in memory of this horse and make yet more money pimping yet another animal they 'care' about.

    2. I have read accounts in the Seattle news papers of how much these dogs are being sold for, much more than you get here in LA. Here's a video taken undercover and showing how much those transported dogs are sold for and nothing like home check, nothing to make sure these dogs are going into a good home. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFf0_fFkU5s

      Uploaded by ColdDogsNoBeds on Feb 1, 2010
      Cold Noses Warm Beds is a "rescue" located in Langley, BC. They work with various L.A. based rescue groups to bring dogs from California to B.C. to rehome them. The dogs are pulled from shelters and most of the people in the U.S. believe that they are doing good things. But CNWB is selling dogs with no home checks, no name checks, nothing.

      The woman in this video gave a false name, false email, false address. Nothing about her story was true. She purchased 2 dogs from CNWB and immediately took them to the vet, where one needed surgery to help an infected neuter site. She told CNWB that the dogs were for an elderly, immobile father for his 70th birthday as a surprise for him (rescuers worst nightmare) and she was given 2 dogs with NO hassles.

      The operator of CNWB then posted that the dogs were going to "a family home where they will work in agility". This is NOT true. The 2 dogs in this video, Pepe and Tiny, are long gone now and are safe and sound.

      This is NOT rescue and this needs to be stopped. I'd also like to point out that this woman is NOT affiliated with the BCSPCA as she states in the video.

      Please, send this out to as many people as you can, this MUST be stopped.

  8. Royce is not an animal transporter. She, and so many others just like her, are brokers. They are in the business of making money off the suffering of animals. They are export/importers.

  9. Where is the IRS!!

    She and so many others, are in the business of using animals to make money. She stuffs animals into small crates so she can get more crates in the back of the van.

    Thirty or more crates in a van @ $150 per dog... You do the math.
    Do you think she declares her "blood money"?

  11. Where are the legislators when you need them?
    Where are the veterinarians when you need them?

    The veterinarians and legislators in Connecticut cared enough to change the laws regarding the importing of animals into Connecticut because the brokers were importing diseased animals. The brokers were bringing in animals with undiagnosed medical problems; unsuspecting families adopted them, fell in love with them, spent hundreds of dollars on medical care, only to have to euthanize the animal. And how about the unpredictable dog that was "pulled" by a rescue, transported by a broker and then adopted by an unsuspecting family.

    No one is being held accountable.

    How about it California legislators and veterinarians! The animals need your help!

    Does anyone care...

  12. Royce is not the only broker/transporter/importer/exporter.
    Did you see that guy who posted on his own Facebook page - standing beside his van, dogs in cages, cages sitting lopsided and crammed in to the back of his van. Then he had aluminum foil or something like aluminum foil over the windows. Wonder what he is trying to hide.

  13. What gets me, is that some animal shelters take pride in the fact - even advertize - that they are working with brokers.

    Does the shelter staff know where each animal is going?

    Has shelter management unexpectedly visited each foster home or rescue?

    Could the animals be transported to a hoarding situation?

    Has the shelter management visited the "low kill" shelters where these animals are being transported?

    Do they care or are these animals just not a euthanasia statistic on their log - let them be a statistic on another shelter's log.

    Is the transport business a result of No Kill accusations and condemnations of shelters?

    1. The shelters do know but there is nothing they can do about it. The F**king Hayden, the worse legislation ever written, forces shelters to relinquish pets even to those the shelters know is not in the best interest of the pet.

  14. Remember - do not blame the shelters for causing the animal suffering from this "transport" business. Because of the Hayden bill, the shelters must release animals to any 501c3 rescue group before the animal is euthanized.

    This portion of the Hayden bill is causing animal suffering. It should be totally rewritten or removed.

    1. But "No Kill" says you can adopt yourself out of this. Actually "No Kill" just ships them off and forgets about them. Have you even heard Winograd condemning those "No Kill" sanctuaries and rescues who made animals suffer in his name? Nope, he doesn't and neither does he do anything to stop all these from forcing suffering and horrible deaths all in the name of "No Kill". Along with the Hayden, I wish Winograd would stuff himself in the same place.

      The saddest part of all this is the legit rescues who do it right never get any publicity. We work very hard daily to make sure our rescues are healthy before they are even shown. We alter, vaccinate, de-worm, de-flea/tick, microchip, do follow up and take our dogs back no matter what. When we transport, the animals get rest stops, food, water, clean bedding if they have an accident. The vehicle is air conditioned/heated. The animals are vetted and vaccinated and if necessary heart worm tested. We know because we volunteer to help the vet and handle every dog. We know this because we do the driving, the loading, unloading. Too bad there is no good publicity for all these animals and groups who dedicate our lives to what we do.

    3. And Deborah that breaks my heart too. I have some friends involved in transporting purebreds because some breeds hardly end up in shelters. They do it the right way too. I would be happy to do a post on the good ones. In fact, if you want to write it, I will post it. Just remember where this blog comes from and refrain from making unfounded accusations against Devore. Thanks for reminding us that there are good people out there because there are.

    4. One question however. Have you checked to see if the receiving end's local shelter is still euthanizing for time and space? Because if it is, then it isn't right to take dogs there and take homes away from those shelter dogs. Now usually the answer given is that the area doesn't have small dogs and you have to compete with breeders. I don't swallow that. If you are dedicated to saving lives, you work with those in the shelters around you first, doing programs that can help to get those less likely to be adopted dogs into homes, you don't forsake them by bringing in dogs to satisfy a demand. Purebreds can be somewhat different because certain breeds don't show in the shelters a lot. Thus you can keep people away from breeders by bringing in these purebreds but not mixed breeds.

    Sounds like this Transport Business is totally unregulated.

    I wonder if the person paying the hundreds of dollars to this transport person knows how the animals are being transported.

  18. I saw a facebook post of 80+ dogs and the caption was dogs on death row. Many people are offering money to save the dogs. One dog has over $300.00 in pledges if he is rescued and he is still listed. I live in CT and when I bought a townhome I attempted to rescue a dog and because I worked and lived in a town home, was turned down by a rescue. I went to another rescue group and rescued a dog; they accepted the fact that I work (lol). The dog ended up having some stomach problems, I had to boil chicken and mix some rice in and by special food for her. She was my walking partner and her vet records would show she was well cared for. There are some very reputable shelters that work with foster homes and would be happy to help rescue dogs humanely and have a thorough screening process. It seems this blog is knocking the transporters, but not proposing an alternative, which results in certain death for the dog. If the shelters feel the transport rescue groups are making money and not humanely rescuing/transporting dogs, why not work with some reputable rescue groups in other areas directly?

    1. Let's break down your comment. First you point out the amount of pledges. Transporting is to raise donations, it isn't for the animals.

      Second, these transports aren't saving lives, they are taking lives. I go behind these transports, check the area to see if their receiving end has shelters still euthanizing for time and space. And they always are. In other words, the receiving rescue should be saving the lives of their local animals, that's what their donors are giving money for, not to save animals three states over.

      Until shelters aren't having to euthanize for time and space, rescues need to work their own area first. I know for a fact that the animals being transported were never in fear of losing their lives. They may have been on a list but they wouldn't have died because they are the highly adoptable animals. The rescues are taking advantage of the poor piece of legislation called the Hayden. They cherry pick the LA shelters for dogs that would never be euthanized and use the law to force the shelters to give them the dogs. They leave the less adoptable dogs for the public and those are the dogs that die. Look at the dogs being transported, these aren't the big dogs, the black dogs, the pit bulls, these are the cute fluffy adoptable dogs, the ones you can make money off of.

      So don't come here preaching about offering a solution. The solution is to do actual rescue, take the ones truly on death row and do what it takes to get it adopted. The easy way via transporting only serves one agenda, the egos of the "rescuer".

  19. Seems maybe Rocco was used for dog fighting. On a facebook page https://www.facebook.com/royce.bordes there is a discussion about all the marks on Rocco when he was taken by AC.

    Angels N Paws Rescue I agree, Sandy Bello; which tells me she is an evil, vile, nasty woman who should not be around animals! She cussed everyone out who ever asked about Rocco & his whereabouts & said he's ok & you'll never see him again...well, he wasn't ok...not only is he emaciated, he's heartworm positive which confirms what AC told me the reason they confiscated him...he was tethered, which is against law, outside being eaten alive by flies & mosquitos. He will never be chained nor left outside again!

    And another comment I find interesting. Pat Bonham Royce, I hope everyone can chip in to help get Rocco home. I remember the day you pulled him...he was just a baby and it is horrifying that he ended up in such a predicament because one person lied to you and took matter into her own hands and placed this lovely boy in danger. SHe should be arrested for her crime on this puppy. Is this person still helping to fly animals...If so she should be DNA"D BIGTIME! WHO SHOULD BE ARRESTED IS THE PERSON WHO PUT THIS DOG IN THIS POSITION TO BEGIN WITH AND IT ISN'T DEVORE WHO DID THIS TO THIS DOG.
