Justice for Dogs and Cats Reportedly Trapped in Filthy, Unlivable “Rescue” Facility

Target: A. Billingsley, Borough Attorney of North Star Fairbanks Borough

Goal: Prosecute animal rescue business owner accused of multiple counts of cruelty.

It took two decades and several accusations of animal neglect and cruelty, but Alaska’s Loving Companions Animal Rescue has finally closed its doors. After a neglect complaint was made to local police earlier in the year, an investigation commenced that eventually resulted in the under-fire organization’s closure. Now, its owner is facing animal cruelty charges that include a felony count.

Among the allegations are reports from individuals who volunteered at the site of poor, unsanitary, and unlivable conditions. The fact that the accused marketed this place as a refuge for the most vulnerable and at-risk animals makes the possible abuses committed even worse. Such potential crimes undermine the whole cause of animal rescues and do harm to genuinely compassionate individuals who do have good intentions.

Sign the petition below to demand this woman be held to account if she is found guilty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney Billingsley,

Loving Companions Animal Rescue seemingly flew under the radar for 20-plus years. While on the surface this organization presented an image of empathy, love for animals, and good service, volunteers allege the true reflection was much darker.

The reported response to these concerns, however, was anything but consistent or prompt. This potentially clear and present danger to animal welfare was even allowed to remain in operation while it underwent a felony-level investigation. Only when the charges came back did it shutter. Please ensure the pursuit of justice in this case does not meet a similar plodding dead end.

The owner of the rescue operation allegedly violated her most essential duties of care multiple times. She should pay the price if she is found guilty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Sad to say, this news comes as no surprise. Sad state of affairs, Alaska…what with your free-for-all giveaway for trophy hunters it’s all about the money, as always. May this abuser rot in the hell she created for these innocent animals whose lives she ruined.

  2. Appalling .. should have been closed long ago. The owner should have been in jail!!!!

    Euthanize the people responsible.

    Dear Attorney Billingsley,

    … THAT ‘She should pay the price, if she is found guilty?
    INDEED SHE IS, SO PLEASE THROW HER IN JAIL AND MAKE HER PAY 1,000 DOLLARS FOR EACH YEAR SHE HAS BEEN FAKING TO BE PROTECTING ANIMALS WHEN SHE INSTEAD WAS ‘TORTURING’ THEM.

    THANK YOU!

  5. Abusing animals in the name of rescuing them and providing sanctuary not only the ultimate hypocrisy, but it undermines the trust in the entire animal welfare cause. That’s why this ruthlessly sadistic👹 charlatan should get the maximum sentence. What he deserves is death – eye-for-an-eye justice for every single animal he tortured

    Throw this piece of garbage in jail for the rest of her stinking life! How dare she call herself a rescue, she is just a greedy monster. It’s too bad it took so long for this place to be closed down.

  8. Michelle Stewart says:

    That bitch is guilty. She must be charged with at least 50 animal cruelty felonies, spend 50 years in prison with no early parole, and pay a $1 million dollar fine. This punishment is for the 20+ years all those poor animals suffered and/or passed away. Real justice would be if someone shot her dead. That bitch doesn’t deserve to live

  9. MAX JAIL or EUTHANASIA would surely END all animal-abuse!!!!
    Humans abusing animals are not “superior” in any way, just because they are humans. These MONSTERS are the lowest of the low and should be treated accordingly!!!

  10. Places like that are supposed to be a safe haven rescue. Why are the POS’s that run those places getting away with such criminal negligence?

  11. Shirley Lemieux says:

    It is an absolute betrayal of trust to the public when we learn the abuse and cruelty that has or is occurring at either a Shelter or a Rescue. People have the expectation that cats and dogs will be properly provided for and taken care of. So learning about what happened at the Companions Animal Rescue is horrifying. I hope the person responsible receives a just punishment for what she has done.

    Cull them!
