Do Not Adopt - Fighters Posing as Rescue

Postby Adivina » Fri Nov 02, 2007 1:59 pm

Do not adopt to Rebecca or Tony williams
This is not the first time this persons name has come around ... do not adopt/sell/place to/with them... PLEASE CROSSPOST

* * * DO NOT ADOPT TO REBECCA OR TONY WILLIAMS * * *

Tony & Rebecca Williams (e-mail: JaRuleW@aol.com ) claim to have a rescue
in Rocky Mount, NC and are trying to get dogs from all over the Eastern
Seaboard. (She offered to take 14 dogs since Monday) She continues to take dogs,
most are pit bulls, with some offers to adopt Presa Canarios, Rottwiellers,
Dobermans, and Wolf hybrids.
In addition, she had previously posted that her roommate was looking for a
Great Dane or Great Dane mix.
She also posted that she was "desperate" for a Chihuahua and she
really wanted a Mini Pin and a Jack Russell.

She claims her rescue is a pit bull rescue, but another pit rescuer
called the local Animal Control. Animal Control's comments:
"She's been barred from taking any dogs from the shelters in her area. He
also said she has a long criminal history, has been selling Pit Bulls on
street corners for 15 or 20 dollars and has been under investigation for dog
fighting."

Atlantic Rescue has now banned her, after finding out this information.
These are the breeds she has asked for:
a.. Pit Bulls
b.. Rottwiellers
c.. Dobermans
d.. Presa Canarios
e.. Tea Cup Chihuahuas
f.. Jack Russell Terriers
g.. Shar Peis
h.. Min Pin
i.. Great Dane (Pure Breed or Mix)

She uses the little dogs as bait! Please cross post
Please check for your breed above and notify all rescues.
They are going out of their area looking for dogs to adopt.

This warning has been circulating since early 2003 I believe. I doubt they are still doing anything. It may have been earlier than that when I first saw it.

They still are doing it, I work for a rescue group and we had a request from them to adopt animals just the other day. Hence the reason for this posting.

How can they possibly imagine those who provide them with dogs are NOT going to want to follow up with them??? 'Missing' dogs lead to lots of questions....

So does that mean they are in the Northeast now? Do they move about to different locations of the country?

I can cross-post but just wanted a bit more info.
Thanks!

Geeze... Yeah I dont understand why people do these things either??? What is she selling the dogs on street corners so she can afford her crack addiction?? Shame on her.
But what happens if she lies and gives someone a false name? I dont know if this is possible but maybe you or someone else could post a picture of what she looks like? maybe? I dont know.
Thanks for sharing this though.
