Do NOT give money to Shannon Allen.

Shannon Allen is a former Dogs Deserve Better representative who has severe OCD.

She abruptly quit DDB in September and began wild tale telling of fund abuse, mismanagement and other wild tales.

Shannon was hoarding animals as a rescuer.  She was asked to stop several times.  When she abruptly left DDB, she had 10 dogs in her possession.  She never made any effort to find them homes - they are still with her. 

She went on a campaign to get Dogs Deserve Better to take these dogs for her, even though they were acquired during a hoarding period of Shannon's, and not DDB.  She took to Facebook,  Blogger and numerous websites stating that the CEO of DDB was a "dog abuser" (but wanted her to take her dogs anyway), the CEO "mismanaged" funds and a host of random lies.

She posts "as proof" letters transcribed by her (not copies), receipts with no dates, personal emails, allegations ("to my knowledge...) but never PROOF.

After three months of stalking DDB, Tami Thayne offered the one opening she had at the rehab, offered to drive five hours to take the dog of Shannon's choice, offered 10 bags of dog food and a $100 gift card PER DOG that Shannon still has.

Shannon said no.

Shannon has set up numerous Chip in sites asking for various amounts of cash for these "abandoned" dogs.  She recently closed them and opened a Facebook FundRazr account asking for $2000!!! 

Shannon is a convicted embezzler.  She'll tell you it was 4 misdemeanors, but she was charged with four felonies for stealing $36,000 from Virginia Tech.  She pled down to misdemeanors by arranging payback.  She says she "borrowed" the funds because she has OCD.  She claims that she is still friends with all the people involved, including the district attorney and the parole officer. 

Shannon currently has a restraining order against her for stalking and harassment.

Retribution and Lies from Dogs Deserve Better

AUTHOR: Lumosity Stone - (United States of America)

A. There is no Pembroke, Vermont genius

B.  Let's see proof that Allen has a restraining order filed against her.  Better yet, what court?  I can look it up myself although I doubt I will find anything.

C.  Dogs Deserve Better's Founder, Tamira Ci Thayne has been charged with animal abuse and neglect

D.  Thayne is a convicted felon

E.  Thayne lives in a $600,000 mansion that she conned the donors into paying for

F.  Thayne has been representing her organization as a non-profit, accepting tax deductible donations in states that she was never registered as a 501c3 for over 10 years.

G.  Thayne not only abandoned Allen's 6 foster dogs, but she abandoned former volunteer Tiffany Citano's 2 foster dogs, former volunteer Rose Gladish's foster dog, former volunteer Jamie Shively's foster dog, former volunteer Christine Jayne's 2 foster dogs and most recently a DDB dog that she is still collecting donations for despite the fact that a former DDB volunteer who started her own rescue saved when Thayne said, "she didn't want her".

Do you want to give money to Thayne?

It is clear that your entire report is falsified and blatant lies as you don't even know where Allen lives.  It is clear that this was fabricated as retribution against Allen for reporting Thayne to the IRS and the Attorney General for fraud.  Just like the manufactured embezzlement claims against Whitfield that were filed conveniently AFTER she reported Thayne for animal abuse.
