This wildlife rehab and rescue center is run by John & Marie Howell, who have felony records dating back to 1993 for various criminal activity including possession of controlled substances, theft, dealing in stolen merchandise, battery, manufacture of marijuana, deliver to minor or hire as agent in sale of stolen merchandise, breaking and entering, etc.
Two years ago they were illegally selling baby opossums on Craigslist. Then,
They found a way to rip people off by becoming a wildlife rehabber. Unfortunately, they only use the poor animals as props for their money making activity. They have taken money for animals that they said were being rehabbed but only to find out that they ditch the poor animals on the side of the road, including blind animals. They were caught red-handed doing this practice. It is documented.
They have taken tousands of dollars in "donations" only to be used for their own personal expenditures. [continued below]....
They said they were a 501c3 organization, but there is NO record of such. The IRS does not give that status to felons.
They do have a non-profit status with the Dept. of Agriculture, but really doubt that once the Feds find out about their scam, that they will soon be losing that status, too.
They beg for money online for cars, repairs to their truck, computers, cages, etc. They have harassed me and several other donors who were sucked into their scam. When we stopped donating then they harassed us all online with untrue statements of libel and malice. They have done this to several people causing severe anxiety and stress for anyone who found out their scam. Once your name is slandered, it is difficult to completely correct the damage. It's the internet, they can get away with slandering someone. They are cowards and steal money that belongs to the animals and use it for themselves.
I cannot warn you enough to stay away from these sick individuals. They have no conscience at all. Be careful, they are dangerous.
