Non profit scam

posted 5 years ago

i was interested in adopting one of the dogs listed on the alleged rescue group's website. after speaking multiple times with staff, a staff member told me none of the dogs listed on the website were really available for adoption, that they were all the "owner's" pets and she was not willing to adopt any of them out. there were over 30 dogs on this property, which was a large house in a gated community. i was told the adoptable dogs were all in prescott at the circle l ranch and that the website was necessary to generate interest and receive additional non profit funding. i was then asked if i would like to donate money for much needed supplies or volunteer to help out by cleaning house. The approximately 60-70 cats were locked in bedrooms that stank to high heaven and while most of the dogs were outside when i visited about 15 small dogs were locked in an office about the size of an average guest room. The house was a private residence and I was asked to only share details with other animal lovers as the cops had been sent several times and neighbors repeatedly complained about the noise and cleanliness. I discovered through offering to volunteer time that the "owners" of this non profit were an OB-GYN named Deborh Wilson who specialized in laparoscopic surgery and Steve Wilson of the AZ Attorney General's office. I have been volunteering with rescue groups since I was a teenager and have NEVER seen such misuse of non profit status. While I have no doubt these people like animals- they would have to given the condition of their property- I am sure it is nothing more than a front for tax evasion.

Pros: knew details of organization

Cons: shared confidential info about misuse of non profit status
