The Barclay Foundation, we were lied to.

Iowa based The Barclay Foundation not happy that they were lied to by the CCAC Rescue Team of Melissa Impens, Mary J Thomas and Penelope Ashenhurst and Seven Star Sanctuary and Rescue.

It seems they were under attack from the Plaintiffs in this Michigan lawsuit when TBF came out exposing that all these animals had been transported by this team very sick with parvo and not one health certificate.

Case in point that this Team does not follow the current State, Federal and USDA APHIS laws in the Animal Rescue arena.

CCAC Rescue Team Transporting Sick Animals without Health Certs.

Responsible Animal Rescue has been a “hot” topic on Facebook for some time now and here we start to see how some of these out-of-state animal rescuers operate and the alarm for not following proper State and Animal Transport Laws.

In this post we have Penelope Ashenhurst explaining how her group is going to go to North Carolina and rescue a load of what looks to be 50 or so dogs.  That Melissa Impens is driving down from Wisconsin to meet with Mary Jo Thomas of Seven Star Sanctuary in Michigan to then head down south to Columbus County in Whiteville North Carolina to transport these animals back up North.

The Barclay Foundation has offered to take in some 20 plus puppies to their rescue in Iowa.

We also see this group asking for donations for the CCAC Exodus which is not a registered business or USDA Licensed Animal Transporter.

Seven Star Rescue announces Michigan location to open

December 2010

( click on picture for a larger view)

Seven Star Sanctuary & Rescue in Paris Kentucky announces their plans for a second location to open in Michigan on a North Carolina Face Book page of animals on death row in a County Shelter in Columbus County NC.

Now only using the documents I have from the State of Michigan, the Michigan location operated and ran for about 6 months without ever passing a single Inspection. Per the State of Michigan this location was visited by the Michigan Dept of Agriculture and Rural Development on May 20, 2011 and set a meeting for June 16, 2011 to discuss these issues. Per their State Documents they were in violation of MDARD MCL 287.336 Section 6.  It as also noted that this location was in full operation and had animals on sight that had been brought into the State from Southern Shelters. Many are thrilled to see Southern animals saved, but does Michigan not have any animals being euthanized daily in their own Shelters? Seems like it would be cheaper for every rescue to save in their own state and would also eliminate the use of unlicensed animal transporters and long hauls for these animals packed in tiny crates for hours after hours.

I bring this out as now we are starting to see where from the very beginning Seven Star Rescue asked for public donations as they had not set up a operating budget before taking on this business, but also the fact that on these State Papers Pam Boyce was the signature and was also listed as the CEO. So why is Pam Boyce not listed in the Michigan Federal Lawsuit as a Plaintiff? Was this an over sight from a overzealous Law Firm or a strategic plan to dissolve ties with the main Kentucky Location so they could file in a Michigan Federal Court where their good friend was employed?

Seven Star Sanctuary and Rescue has from day one asked for donations from the general public, so how is it that these few defendants made it impossible for them to collect funds years after they opened for business? Was it by speaking out about many Animal Rescuers and Animal Transports not being properly licensed or registered with their states?  So far it looks like the Defendants were on target with their statements in regards to these business filings and lack there of.

The blame game is about to be played out in court I would assume. An event we see all to often in Animal Rescue, someone makes a mistake on their own accord and they feel they need to blame other’s for their own mistakes. Grow up Animal Rescuers, learn the Rules and Regulations before you open up shop and find yourself in a world of hurt and blame everyone else instead of accepting you made a mistake, learn from it and move on.

 

Penelope Ashenhurst, CCAC, Melissa Impens

39 weeks Penelope ( from the UK)  claims they have pulled animals from CCAC in NC and she speaks of Melissa Impens her other partner who went to Nc to help pull and transport animals back across multiple state lines with no Health Certs or Rabies Shots for these animals. This is where the Barclay incident seems to have started, 20 plus puppies suffering from parvo where taken from the Nc Shelter at Columbus County, packed in a van and shipped off to Ohio. Also note these groups of animal rescuers DO NOT have USDA APHIS Transporter License. Another violation of the law that you would of thought their partner Nicole Thompson the attorney from Michigan would of looked into. ( Click on the picture to enlarge to view )
