Shows once again why all rescues need state and/or national oversight, just as any other organizations are regulated, have to show what happens to their money, and in the case of Rescues, how many are adopted out, or found foster homes.....

Please stop answering the posts on my column. I've asked so many times nicely. Is this habitual to Colorado?

Cindy- I will point people to the truth yes. If that means I respond so the real narrative is told then yes, I will answer the posts. You do not get to control a public forum. If you want that control there are private blogs for that.

If you refuse to stop overwhelming the commentary, I will be forced to shut down the Q and A and direct commentary to the American Pit Bull Examiner page where you will be blocked. Are you being sent here by BAD RAP to post all these nasty slurs and take over the comments section? That would explain your behavior.

Coloradogs...please allow me to answer my readers. If you would like to write a column for the Examiner and promote your own agenda, please do and please use our link so that Reunion Rescue will receive a $50 donation. Until then, this is still American Pit Bull Examiner, my column, and I am competent to handle the discourse and questions directed toward the column and my articles. Thank you.

Cindy I have asked on multiple "articles" and "posts" you've put up recently where the proof is. you have ignored me every single time. Who is this "mystery" person you refer to? Where is your proof? AFF and Bad Rap do work closely together, that's not some secret. Because they BOTH work to help the dogs. What a freaking concept. I'm personally tired of your insanity and I think a lot of other people are too. Until you can show some proof of any of this nonsense. In one paragraph you say Bad Rap has a history of putting down dogs who aren't adopted soon enough, in another you say they have had dogs "pending for months". And if you read the story of Susie Q...as tragic as it was, she was put down for fear issues that had not improved. Sadly, sometimes that's the real world, but they were honest about it. At the same time, they saved another dog "Maude". Nowhere does it say that they saved Maude ONLY because they let Susie go. It's simply a day in the life of rescue that was shared. And your insanity seems to know no bounds as I have recently seen you now trying to tie some of these groups you have issue with to cravendesires. I'm sorry you lost dogs at Spindletop. Maybe you should have paid more attention to where those dogs were and what was going on with them. But I guess you were spending too much time on the internet slandering and defaming others.

So now you are going to follow me over here and attack me. You have a lot of anger. Lose it somewhere else. Slander (fyi) is spoken and libel  is written..there is no malice nor libel in this article. Since you are so close with BAD RAP and Animal Farm, perhaps they'll let you know where these murdered dogs finally wound up.

Oh yes the notorious Dogsbite screen shot argument. You bet your ass we're proud to be partnered with groups that have done so much for dogs and people and have incredible integrity. That's also our Vet. She's awesome! DINOS has great behavioral stuff for those who are interested and Different Strokes Pet Boutique is in Houston. A fun little place for dog lovers.

So you are here to put me down and then use my readership to promote your supporters? That's a brand new one ... wow. We are homeopathic and holistic, in fact the world's only raw feeding no kill holistic pit bull refuge, so hawking your conventional vet here is very much out of place. Like I suggested, if you are interested in writing your own Examiner column, please use our link and start you own..then you can promote and hawk all your stuff there...and we at Reunion will receive $50 for the referral. Best of luck.

Please Cindy- You sound more and more like Colleen Lynn the more you type. We support groups who put their nose to the grindstone and do good work. We support groups who do community outreach. We know that not all dogs can be saved and sometimes you have to make those heartbreaking calls instead of sending your dog to someone else to avoid the responsibility. We don't spend our time writing articles slandering good people we might disagree with. We have work to do.

Having spent a great deal of time researching and fighting the Dawn James and Colleen Lynn groups, I can guarantee Cindy sounds nothing like them and it is despicable of you to insinuate such a thing.

You say "We don't spend our time writing articles slandering good people we might disagree with. We have work to do." May I point out that is exactly what you are doing here. Why don't you go to work.

Colleen Lynn Hates Pitbulls Cindy Marabito DOES NOT! LOL
If Bad Rap rehabilitated the Vick dogs then why didn't they Rehabilitate the two dogs in question? A dog having fear does not mean they cannot be rehabilitated. Just takes alot of Love and Patience. :) All Cindy is saying is that they could have been saved if given the help needed! Best Friends also took some of the Vick dogs and rehabilitated them and the ones who were deemed to dangerous to be adopted out will live there till they die of natural causes. I recorded that episode when it came out and saw how this male pitbull named Cherry was afraid of people but with alot of Love and Patience they can change and live happy lives.

Doesn't the fact that they saved all those dogs sort of tell you that if they let one go there was a reason? They OBVIOUSLY are willing to save any dogs that can be saved. That only puts even MORE credence to the fact that if they felt this dog needed to be euthanized or if the 2 spindletop dogs she's having such fits about WERE put down, there was a reason.

Yes, the dog that was killed because of fear issues. So? Again, where is your proof that the Spindletop Dogs you reference in this article were killed. And if they were, where is your proof that is was done for a "bad" reason? I didn't follow you here, you posted an article. Last I checked, the comments section on articles were for comments. I'm not close with BAD RAP or with AFF, but I do recognize the amazing amount of good they've done. And you have YET to answer my question. Where is the proof of the accusations you have made against them?

Thank you. Finally someone has a statement about the dead dogs...please elaborate as we've been asking for 2.5 years. Was the dog with 'fear issues' #6 who was formerly known as Bindi? Or was the dog with 'fear issues' #7? What happened that caused the dog's destruction? Please let us know. Craig Malisow of the Houston Press has been asking as have many others for over two years.

Agreed. That's why Spindletop happened and we see failing sanctuaries all over Texas. Colorado does have oversight. We love it. Bad Rap is completely open about what goes on and many, MANY of us have been to their facility or helped and partnered in community outreach and advocacy. The fact no one wants to let Cindy in any longer speaks to her history of vilifying people and groups without fact, not about these groups' integrity.

I don't waste my time hating people like you or Colleen or Jeff. I feel both pity and compassion. Because I can only imagine what it must be like to be in your head. But I know the people you speak of and I know you are lying. I think it's time you are called out on it and please expect to be called out on it every time you print lies. I don;t know why you haven't been sued sooner. We would have sued you out of the gate.

Seriously, what is your issue with facts.

Cynthia- Your vendetta is no different than the same way Colleen Lynn behaves. People won't speak to you because you are not truthful and you harass them. Yet you continue to spread lies in the face of the truth and work to destroy groups who are actually doing good work rather than hiding behind a computer screen. Honestly, at this point I think most reputable advocates and groups have your number and simple are calling you out on it. Why did you take down the video I posted of Donna and Tim discussion all the programs and owner support BAD RAP does? Because it did not fit your agenda and told the truth. You don't have facts, you have hysteria.

Are you kidding me? This entire article is a complete fabrication and no better than Colleen Lynn and her hysteria. Please anyone who is reading this go to the source instead of believing this kind of material. Cindy, you've had a long standing vendetta against BR long before you wrote for this pseudo-news site along with slandering Ken Foster ( who does not make millions as you claim but works at Starbucks). If you want to follow the money how about you look at commissions Tim Racer makes as an artist instead? What about printing that the barn holds up to 6 dogs and there are other kennels on the property? What about all the work they do in the community with those funds helping to spay and neuter dogs, microchip and vaccinate, help find housing for owners in need, training for dogs? Your story is filled with lies and just because people don't want to let you in does not mean they are hiding anything. It means they are tired of the slander and drama you bring to the table. I hope you are sued for slander and libel at this point. It would be well deserved.

Sounds like you have inside information that repudiates the statements in the article. So the $65,000 per year drawn by Tim Racer from BAD RAP is aside from the 40 some odd hours per week at the studio housed and underwritten by BAD RAP donation money? Please provide statements to this effect and the article will be edited to reflect your findings.

The work they do in the community is underwritten by huge PetSmart grant money, yet we do not see the $250,000 grant or the $80,000 grant to hold parties...if the group doesn't do a certain amount of grant funded outreach these hundreds of thousands of dollars will be withdrawn.

Again...slander is spoken and libel is written. Libel is spreading malicious lies which cause a person and/or entity to lose funding. A) no malice here, just an objection to needless killing. B) there doesn't seem to be any loss of income here....

This is not your home Cindy. This is a public article and you as the author are open to being asked to justify your agenda and to having your facts disputed. Your accusations of these groups and of Ken Foster deserved to be addressed, and when you print them, you can expect people, including us, will call you out on the lies. If you do not want to come under that scrutiny, then you should keep those conversations and accusations out of a public forum. I am not a "guest" as this is not a private forum. You are making, and have made for many years, accusations that are unfounded. I have every right to speak against that and tell the truth. I call you Cindy because that is your name and no formalities are needed in a forum. When you accuse me of nasty accusation though, I would suggest you review your own comments.

This is my home. I write from home and this is my article and column. I don't have a $350,000 'blog barn.' The column's not publicly funded, so again, you are mistaken. You are a guest as you do not live here or have your name associated with the column. You keep calling me awful names and now a liar. If these dogs are alive, PLEASE PLEASE correct me! I would love to edit the article and show that these dogs are living and in great homes .. or even at BAD RAP!

No one said you do not have the right to speak, but you are being asked to conduct yourself with respect for the other posters who are guests here as well.

I keep asking..do you even have a name? You call me Cindy, my first name as my friends and family call me..yet you've been asked multiple times to introduce yourself. Are you ashamed to state your real name after the way you've conducted yourself here?

I've been staring at a blank "comment" box for the past 10 minutes because I can't stop stumbling over what I want to say. WOW! I'm speechless. Flabbergasted. Disgusted. Disappointed. Bewildered. Befuddled. Here we have an organization that has done excellent work. That has helped not only countless dogs but countless people. People questioning them after one crud piece? Once you manage to get past all of the popups and hot air anyone reading this blog should be able to see that it is missing any sort of fact. Badrap is an organization that is fueled by integrity. If a choice was made to let an animal go it was because it was in that animals best interest. The end. Unbelievable. The minute and a half that I wasted reading this blog is gone forever. Badrap ... you rock. Keep on keepin' on doing what you do best. Helping dogs and their people!

Cindy... I am not sure why you have pretty much decided to attack two reputable organizations in the way you have been for a while now. It seems you are pouring all of your energy into this personal vendetta you have against AFF instead of focusing on eliminating BSL (which is what we should all be doing. AFF has had a pivotal hand in getting BSL outlawed in quite few states yet you try and run them in the ground over this spindletop issue. You are only alienating yourself form fellow pit bull advocates by your endless attack on groups dedicated to helping pit bulls and fighting BSL. It is seriously time to stop this tirade and get back to focusing on saving these dogs and ending BSL. Until you do I will have to stop promoting your articles and delete any posts like this that you make on our Protect Pit Bulls from BSL facebook page.

If you have personal issues with Bad Rap then so be it but it does not benefit our cause or pit bulls when you continually post articles that really carry no merit and where you have NO factual information for the actions you are accusing them of.

It seems you are only on this tirade for your own self satisfaction and I know you lost an enormous amount of supporters due to this personal agenda and vendetta you have against Bad Rap and AFF.

Maybe that is her agenda....to make it appear that those who have taken on the task of promoting a wonderful breed of dog are noting more than a facade. It then can be beneficial to those wanting to ban our breed. Media has been biased about lessor things. Makes me feel as if she is assisting in the destruction of the breed, instead. Kind of makes me go huuuuuummmmmm

You are misquoting the article you misread. The Animal Welfare Commission meeting was held in San Francisco, not Sacramento. As a professed advocate, you will be happy to note the muzzling ordinance was voted down unanimously after I illustrated the absurdity by donning a leather and wire muzzle. You see, I love the dogs and am solution oriented. I will, at the risk of looking silly to you and your group of advocates you reference, do and say what is needed to protect the dogs. With me, it's the dogs needs and solution first. Politics and groups take a backseat. Due to mis-guided advocates and politics, animal welfare has not progressed much and that is the great crime of our nation which is killing a dog every 11 seconds.

I guess I'm confused..BAD RAP rarely has over 4 or 5 dogs for adoption and brings in over $340,000 a year...where is the limited resources? And these two dogs had survived horrible existence at Spindletop and were assessed by Animal Farm, Red Rover, HSUS and Montgomery County Animal Services before being entrusted to BAD RAP. Why were they then killed?

I don't understand. The author keeps reposting an image of a blog post that seems to explain a difficult decision to euthanize a dog with serious fear issues. Is the point that they shouldn't have pulled the dog in the first place (and probably given her the best months of her life)? Or that the dog Maude should've died instead? I'm totally confused.

Cindy has a vendetta against some groups Sara. The reality is some dogs are so broken the best we can do is give them lots of love and time in the sun before we let them go. It sucks. Cindy is simply looking to attack people based of a fantasy she has built up in her mind because reputable groups no longer want to deal with her due to her false accusation and vitriol. Don't believe a word she says.

There is no link for her claims that they put down owned dogs, nothing to back up any of her claims in that regard. When BAP RAP does euthanize a dog (always with reason) they tell everyone about it on their blog because they are transparent. "Tons" is a purposeful misrepresentation, which is Cindy's MO, as I am sure you can tell from the interactions here.

When there are limited resources, it's not surprising that once in a while, dogs with the most severe issues are euthanized in order to give countless others a better chance. Really tough decisions when there are too many dogs and not enough homes. And I just don't get any indication from any of the materials cited or provided here that there was anything sinister going on or that they didn't make the decision they thought would be most beneficial. Will continue looking at all this though...

The Animal Farm Foundation sent the two dogs to BAD RAP .. the two dogs had survived the horrors of Spindletop only to be shipped to Oakland and killed at the hands of BAD RAP. This is outlined in the article and also covered in Craig Malisow's investigative piece for the Houston Press.

I'll be rethinking my opinion of Bad Rap. I realize that one of the saddest facts of rescue is that you can't save them all, and even for the ones you do manage to save, there may not always be a happy ending. A growing number of animal "owners" are choosing to dump senior and terminally ill animals at kill shelters. There are legitimately some cases where a rescue saves a dog, only to have to make the painful decision to release him from the pain and suffering of illnesses beyond cure. However, any legitimate rescue will not hide just what happened to those animals. That not only are they not coming clean about what happened to these two dogs, but are blocking people who are asking about them, very fishy, if you ask me.

You're saying you do not agree with the decision to euth dogs with severe issues, and that outweighs all the good work being done and all the dogs they've saved from euthanasia?

I've dealt with some very nasty posters and groups on the commentaries below my column and have sought help from Disqus in the past to no avail. However, if you are interested in writing for the Examiner, please use my link as Reunion Rescue gets $50 for every referral...you can have your own column and post your videos and your opinions. Best of luck and we can use the $50....LIVE dogs and holistic care are a bit more expensive to underwrite than euthanasia.

Kristy Graham, please don't waste time on the lady who posted she was going to rethink her opinion of Bad Rap. She originally posted under her name, but then changed it to guest once I called her out. The lady who was going to change her opinion ran a rescue in IN called Hearts & Hounds Rescue. There is still some info online. Her rescue was truly disgraceful. She left dogs stranded all over the US & left 1 of the dogs in her rescue be euthanized at a shelter because she wouldn't go claim it!!!!! I'm still shocked that she would even comment on this issue after her own actions. Some people have no shame!!!

It is up to those who really want to help animal rescues to do due diligence in investigating each rescue or organization before making donations to them. It's not necessarily the ones with the slickest websites or most pathetic stories that have the animal's best welfare at heart. After all, the best cons are the ones that are the most believable sounding.

Doesn't take a degree in rocket science to know the difference between Spindletop, Bad Rap, and Animal Farm. To lump them together makes you a poor example of "filmmaker".

Thank you Kristy, I did not know the connection was to Spindletop. I financially funded the care of a pup there for years. When I questioned his well being since there had been no updated status for him for the better of 2 years my check was returned. That said, I personally cannot save all of them and I back those who attempt to make lives better for this breed. I guess the next groundbreaking article will be about VRC. This person, "author", "filmmaker" really does have some BIG mental health issues going on. Sad, just sad. I think we should continue to speak the truth about those she is attempting to slander, but in the Spirit of the Christmas season we need to show pity for her as well.

IF those dogs, you are screaming about, are indeed dead, then knowing what I do about this organization and others they were put down with cause, not some random act of playing God. I would love to be in a position to save them all but sometimes that is not a feasible situation. Doesn't matter what breed of dog it may be.

Hello world...I'm just here to strut!

Mom, let me show you how it's done!

Russell is our main strutter with Reed and mom Adena!

Daddy Joe and Reunion Rescue's Darla!

Sweet Pea where are you??????

Just sitting here waiting like a very good Sweet Pea!

My favorite tune is Quiche Lorraine by the B52's!

I am the prettiest one....dance like a butterfly and sing like a bee!

My mom is starting me on the Reunion Rescue raw food diet tomorrow! Yay, I'm sure glad I came today!

Our good friend Pat with foster Hope from the Oakland Shelter!

Hope spent her life on a chain and now has a new leash on life..Hope goes to her new real family home next week!

Our good friend Jan's Rosemary....
