Ok, I want to
clarify something Blaze Thall keeps lying about.
dogs that were turned over to animal control – HE abandoned them. He used all
the rescue funds leaving no money to buy food or supplies. He did NOT have a
suitable place to bring those dogs set up.
refused to go to the location to talk to animal control himself – he sent ME
instead. He never tries to work with animal control, he thinks it’s acceptable
to ignore them and this is why he owes them thousands of dollars in fines that
he refuses to pay.
I had been a board member MAYBE 3 days when I had to go meet with animal
control. I had never been inside the location, never met the animals in person.
But he sent me to deal with a mess HE made.
and video clearly show the conditions the dogs were forced to exist in – NOT suitable
for energetic, healthy dogs!!
The number of
animals he hoarded is also not a manageable number for one person to handle the
24 / 7 care of – which is what he left Amanda doing when he refused to go to
the location himself and deal with the mess he made.
He tries to
use the cop out that Amanda had the restraining order. That order does permit
him to go and get his belongings and animals – so him crying about the
restraining order preventing him is just another one of his excuses.
So, since the
new location was NOT set up to receive the dogs, the rescue had ZERO funds to
buy food or supplies and he was so wrapped up in himself and his own issues a
decision was made to allow animal control to seize 18 dogs.
YES, I have
the paperwork on that – paperwork he wanted to make himself look like the victim.
I refused to give them to him because MY signature is on that paperwork not
his. He did not have the balls to go and deal with them himself.
worth their weight knows a CAGED animal is HARD to rehab!!! Those dogs rarely
got outside because the outside kennels were NOT properly weatherized. The
times they did go outside it was for MAYBE 15 – 30 minutes a day. That is NOT
enough!!! Those dogs spent 23 hours a day in a medical crate, walking and
sleeping on the metal bars under their feet.
So, the fact
that animal control assessed the dogs and their ability to be rehabilitated and
deemed 10 of the dogs unable to rehome is on HIM not me. Had he gone and dealt
with the mess himself they would have arrested him on the spot, and he knew
that. This is why he chose not to go.
he is blaming someone else for a mess he created.
there is 10 acres out here, nothing was prepared to receive the dogs, nor would
he stay and take care of them. He proved that with his own dogs and the 3
rescue dogs that were already here. Nope, he left most daily care for me, even
of his personal dogs.
Keep in mind
I was less than 2 weeks from wrist surgery, left wrist in a cast and was
supposed to be on bed rest to heal. Nope, I had to care for the dogs because he
failed to do so properly. He again tried to keep them caged here, did NOT want
to put up the 10 x 10’s even though that was a requirement for me if he wanted
the dogs here.
He tries to
say look at all the awards the rescue has won. Do you think those places would
have issued the awards IF they ever saw the conditions those dogs existed in on
a daily basis? No, they wouldn’t. Those awards were issued based on a lie.
So, while he
cries foul about the dogs that were turned over to animal control, remember he
made the mess. He had a choice to go deal with it himself. I practically begged
him to ride with me and he refused. He could have handled it any way he saw fit
but since he chose not to go, he doesn’t like how it was handled so he is
to cage those dogs 23 plus hours per day. Blaze chose to feed them cheap food,
not enough food or water. He chose that.
Then, he sent
someone who had only been on the board less than 72 hours to handle the
situation. He sent someone who would make the right choice for the animals.
Other rescue’s had a chance to get the dogs who were slated for death. Those
rescue’s deemed those dogs unadoptable. Why? Because of the conditions Blaze
forced them to exist in.
So, when he
cries about the dogs that were euthanized, please remember that multiple other
rescue’s looked at those dogs and also deemed they could not be rehabilitated.
I am so tired
of his childish bullshit lies about he never does anything wrong it is always a
woman who has wronged him. This is simply NOT the case.
keep buying into that same bullshit for over a decade is beyond me.
The idea he
will interfere with fundraisers to get the very animals he abandoned is
disgusting. These animals need to be spayed and neutered, purchase food,
supplies, and so forth. Yet he wants to cry all over social media to not
support any fundraiser we have for these animals is wrong.
It only goes
to show you that if he cannot have control of the animals, the funds to support
them then he will act like a spoiled two-year-old in a Wal-Mart aisle who isn’t
getting what he wants.
working hard to raise funds to do right by the few animals we did save from
that hellhole he created. If people want to listen to him and NOT help the
animals he abandoned, they are the ones who have to live with that decision at
the end of the day. But, we will do right by them regardless of his actions.
the About Me page if you want to help. Put “spay / neuter / supplies” in the
subject and all receipts will be posted!
Thank you in
advance and pix of the animals will be posted on JellyBean’s page. Even though
JB passed on November 29, 2023 we are still keeping his page and spirit alive!
@JBtheCat on Facebook – hope to see you there!
