Action Aid for Animals (Romania Animal Aid) dirty slander

Friday, January 20th, 2012

Action Aid for Animals (aka Romania Animal Aid) is run by two glorious minds, Kendra Pinder and Chrissy Phillips. They are well-known for slander more and more Romanian groups because….they can’t help it!

Don’t get fooled by the appearances for form’ sake presented by these women, or their  (always) first sweet approach, trying to convince you how dramatically (and suddenly) they are in love of other country’ animals. Be patient and search inside these dirty souls. Your patience will be rewarded with true colors of these persons. As a fish wife remains a fish wife, no matter what!

SLANDER AGAINST SAVE THE DOGS CHARITY  AND SARA TURETTA

After using Sara Turetta in their own dirty games, now it’s Sara’s turn to pay for trusting these …ladies;-)

againstSaraTuretta

It is the same approach like in the case of so many other victims . First, Kendra and Co is busy to haggle doubt in donors mind. Then, threats and serious attacks are starting, if donors don’t obey and don’t accept the “label” put by this great medium and forger to different people or groups she dislike!

KENDRA PINDER ATTACKING ADRIANA HARTAN FROM TG. NEAMT

If you carefully read Kendra’s post: “Think I am going to put together an expose site on her”….Why? Because Adriana refused to give her dogs?!

She has a double-personality, the prescribed medical treatment doesn’t go well with the beers, she often drinks…her body is over-weighted because the only thing she does is to accept favors to slander people. One day it was a discussion about her true identity, because often she goes under fake names to fool people and Brenda asked: “Are you sure I am a female“…and looking at this photo, I wonder…under the mountain of fat meat, do you see any trace of grace, any silhouette? ….Or just a mammoth body in beer sauce…disgusting!

Did you donated recently to Romania Animal Rescue of Romania Animal Aid, now Action Aid for Animals? Why?

Do you plan to go to Canary Islands or Africa any time soon? How much do you think it costs? Now add up your husband and your son expenses and think how many animals you could save if donations wouldn’t have gone…

Dana: • How does a charity worker who says she isnt an employee, well some times she is and other times she says she isnt, anyways I wonder since she is out of the country if she went back to the most luxurious vacation, rich spot in the world-MONACO! Like she did last July of 2011! Who paid for that? Of course we all know who did, the DONORS!


Riitta Uusi-Rajasalo Shit what woman. How we can stop her lies to get money her own luxus life.

Brenda Chanczyki is “talking” with Dana, asking her questions while she blocked Dana’s profile months ago.

What evidences convinced you Riita Ussi that Dana went to Monaco on July,November, March or any month in her life?

If you blindlybelieve everything  people serve on plate to you, make sure your mouth stay closed as Brenda has something fresh for everyone…you would think sometimes she is a walrus…she can’t be a whale because she has no grace and no feminity!

Do you know Brenda Chanczyki aka Adnerb Nerb from Facebook?

This low-character is coming and going from the big Facebook scene, but when she is showing up there,she is very active to slander ROLDA and kiss up louder RAR and Nancy Janes.

Maybe she is remunerated , or lets’ softly say – she gets favors- to do this dirty job as I can’t see any other reason why someone with entirely brain functioning, who had nothing to do with ROLDA in the past, who never donated to ROLDA or were involved in any shapes and forms in ROLDA activity – to be so “revolutionarily active”!

Brenda Chanczyki on Facebook:

ATTENTION: Everyone start to contact Facebook contacts and friends from Austria and Switzerland, and tell them what Dana plans to do. Inform them of how corrupt Rolda is and send them the website where-did-my-brain-go

MY COMMENTS: ROLDA JUST ANNOUNCED A NEW PROJECT AND PUPPETS VIPERS ATTACKED! OFTEN THEY ARE BUSY TO SPREAD COMMENTS THAT IT TAKES LONG TO ROLDA TO GET FUNDING DIFFERENT PROJECTS…HOW IT SHOULD BE EASY TO RAISE FUNDS WITH THE PUPPETS ARMY OF GOSSIPERS ALWAYS ON TO HURT ROLDA?!

Marianna Lammi I just saw that greyhoundaction.org.uk advertises Rolda as on organization helping greyhounds in Romania. If someone is able to contact the people and tip them off about Rolda, please do so! I cannot open the right page. :( (
Brenda Chanczyki send me a link and I will do it, thanks!

Brenda Chanczyki We need everyone to contact this organization and tell them about Rolda.

MY COMMENTS: YES,BRENDA GO FOR IT, DON’T DISSAPOINT NANCY JANES, WHO SPEND BIG BUCKS ON YOUR “SLANDER WORK”…HURT ROLDA AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, YOU BITCH…AS KARMA WILL GET YOU AGAIN.DID I EVER SAID TO YOU I AM SORRY YOU HAD SEVERAL SURGERIES…AND I HOPE YOU’LL BE HEALTHY TO RUIN ROLDA EVEN MORE IN THE FUTURE….

Brenda Chanczyki
Dana’s latest plea for a new ides to receive more donations she can pocket. Please read from her Rolda website. She wants someone from Austria or Switzerland to DONATE land!!! If she is that concerned, why not buy the land herself or better yet, let those countries do this on their own without interference from Rolda manipulation.

MY COMMENTS: ARE YOU JEALOUS THAT RAR AND RAA ARE TOO STUPIDLY MANAGED TO HAVE ANY IDEAS?

Actionfor Romaniananimals This does not make any sense….potential adopters will still have fly or drive across Europe to get to Switzerland…

KENDRA DEAR, WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT DRIVING, AS EVERYWHERE YOU GO, YOU REACH CROATIA….DRIVING IN YOUR MOUTH IS PROHIBITED.

Anja Stein She is very active and in all her new “ideas” she tells something like ” we will keep you updated of the income” or “bookkeepers” are mentioned. She tries to pretend people that she is transparent.

ANJA STEIN, YOU USE SOMEONE ELSE’S BRAIN TO GO TO TOILET…BACK OFF!

Brenda Chanczyki This is just another ploy to gain trust from people because in her own area her name is very much ruined and tainted, like a bad taste in your mouth!

IT SEEMS THAT YOU KNOW BETTER, BRENDA, ABOUT THE BAD TASTE FROM YOUR MOUTH, WHICH IS NOT BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF TOOTHBRUSH;-)

RAA makes efforts to prevent ROLDA dogs to be rehomed!

Monday, January 9th, 2012

What a pathetic excuse of pseudo-animal lover this Chrissy Phillips is!

Look ,people, her own words trying to convince ROLDA UK Representatives NOT help ROLDA rehome more dogs in UK!

After sending tons of emails to harass ROLDA supporters and especially our charity representatives, after calling names like “animal abuser” those who didn’t reacted the way RAA and Chrissy Phillips expected, after trying so hard to find details who is fundraising ROLDA and persuade them NOT TO, now it seems that RAA has a problem if ROLDA send some dogs out in forever happy homes!

Maybe because it’s a conflict of interest, and while trying to alienate ROLDA, RAA is begging at different Romanian charity ‘doors for attention?!

After ROLDA ended working with RAA, they were incapable to send ANY DOG in UK because probably they couldn’t find a decent place to offer quarantine for 6 months to a dog. After January 2012, a new opportunity arise for Chrissy, as quarantine was off . Seeing a potential competitor in ROLDA,  this pathetic creature influence people not give a ROLDA dog a chance to be rehomed!

What a GREAT animal lover is Chrissy Phillips!!! Read her own incriminatory words and don’t get surprised, as she showed her true real face so many times before:

Hi D….,
I will also explain to you then why rehoming her dogs actually makes the situation worse for so many other dogs.  I know that won’t make sense right now but I will explain in more detail later.

There are a million dogs on the streets of Romania and literally hundreds of shelters that would gladly accept your assistance in rehoming dogs.  You will without doubt be contributing to Dana’s personal wealth if you find adoptees for her dogs.

People get very excited when they adopt understandably so and want to share photos/updates. Many go on to donate in the future or certainly share info about their dog with friends/family and how it came from Dana and indirectly others then donate.  I do know what I’m talking about Dee, I found homes for her dogs over the course of 2-years. if you do decide to walk away, please know that you can do this with no regret as I can put you in touch with so many other people that would be desperately grateful for your help and you could make more of a difference then you ever will do with Dana.

Please add me on FB or let me know what name you are under, at least we can keep in touch and you can see the sort of genuine appeals for homes that are always coming through daily?  Please also retain my personal email address.

Warmest wishes and apologies again for all the disappointment.

New infos about the RAA horrible transport

Saturday, January 7th, 2012

In May month 2011, the public was informed about severe problems related to the transport organized by Chrissy Phillips from Romania Animal Aid.

The Dutch Police was about to confiscate the Romanian dogs for good .Being questioned, RAA denied everything and came up with fake testimonials .

This is a conversation between desperate Romanians, victims of these kind of “helpers” abuses. Conversation was started on a group for Romanian animals on Facebook. today 07 January 2011:

This lady posted on a Romanian group, desperate because the dog she sent in May, in a transport organized by Chrissy Phillips from RAA “disappeared”!

Diana

O sa o iau razna! Am o mare mare rugaminte :| :| CIne are cunostinte in Olanda sau il stie pe @Gwendoly Janssen si poate sa ia legatura va rog sa o faca!!! De luni de zile incerc s aflu ceva si nu reusesc.NUMAI IMI RSPUNDE! Si innebunesc…

TRANSLATION: I am going crazy…who knows someone in Holland and can get in touch with @Gwendoly Janssen, please! I am trying for months to find out something about my dog. Nobody answers me! I am going crazy…

Diana mi-a spus cineva ca acest gwendolyn janseen i-ar fi gasit acolo  un nou stapan si marcel kwajik ( sau cv d genu ) incearca sa vb cu gwendolyn sa ma puna in legatura cu acei stapani ..

J cum a ajuns la Gwendolyn Janssen?! prin cine exact?

Diana marilena ganea s-a ocupat de transportul cateilor din luna mai spre olanda impreuna cu sorina blinkhorne si ele nu imi raspund l mesje.nici ele

TRANSLATION: Marilena Ganea took care of the dogs tranposrt in May month to Holland together with Sorina Blinkhorne and both don’t respond to my emails .

Mada nu e noroc dar i a prins politia si au luat cainii in graba nu s a mia tinut cont ….a mea nu avea adoptator mergea in foster….

TRANSLATION: It wasn’t lucky. Police catches them and took the dogs in hurry, nobody cared. Mine’s didn’t have adoptive family, she was going in foster.

Mada da si s a produs o harababura….unii au apucat sa inhate niste caini si sa fuga dar ceilalti au fost retinuti

TRANSLATION: It was an ambush …some grabs dogs, and run away…others were restrained!

Mada eu am trimis o singura catelusa o data cu diana, in mai cred ca a fost transportul….catelusa trebuia sa aj la maacel kaajik care conduce o asociatie in olanda in foster….cand au ajuns in olanda politia a venit si ea….dar i a prins exact cand descarcau cainii…..o parte din caini fisesera luati de adoptatori…..o parte nu….fam care a luat o pe a mea mi- a zis ca au inhatat o si au fugit….ei se cunosteau cu marcel kaajik se dusesera impreuna acolo dar catelusa nu trebuia sa ajunga la ei ci la marcel dar in nebunia aia a ramas la ei….niste catei au fost retinuti…..s-au cerut analize suplimentare si a doua zi -iau recuperat….nu au mai fost probleme….mentionez transportul era facut de HAR dar in numele RAA….RAA a platit HAR UL sa transporte acesti caini…..

TRANSLATE: I sent a female dog only once, in May month….my dog was supposed to go to Maarcel Kaajik who runs a association in Holland. When the van arrived, police came too…police catched them exactly when they took out the dogs from the van. …some dogs were already taken by adoptants. …some don’t. The family who took mine said they grabbed her and run away!!!!They knew that MJ went there for my dog, and my dog wasn’t suppose to go to them. …but in that crazyness and confusion…my dog remained to them instead. I declare that the transport was done by HAR but in RAA (aka Romania Animal Aid) name….they paid HAR to transport those dogs. (…)

After being exposed, RAA allied with RAR and Nancy Janes to harass ROLDA on internet and move the attention from what they actually did to those animals!

5 from the 10 ROLDA dogs were abandoned into a shelter in Holland and never, ever since, taken to UK, as RAA had promised initially.

Subject: Re: [HelptheAnimals] Dana Costin of ROLDA [Romanian League for the Defense of Animals] Accused of Theft of Funds
Brennan, I would like to ask you a few questions. Did you consider maybe checking out facts before you just jumped on board to pass on this information about this rescue organization? You state you are just passing this on from a woman that did some fundraising for ROLDA. Did it come into your thoughts that this may be a good organization and you could be causing more damage to someone that may be trying to save an animals life right now? Do you know the woman well that asked you to send this and trust her implicitly before you thought to send such a damaging piece out? I am sure she has not spent all the money on alcohol and fripperies as you say. Do you think a rescuer should not be able to purchase clothing? What about the large organizations such as HSUS taking six figure salaries? Do you think HSUS employees don’t buy clothing and alcohol? Brennan I can assure you Dana lives on a millionth of what this organization has yet actually has animals she is caring for right now. Every dime no matter what organization you donate to doesn’t go to animals, there is overhead to consider. With HSUS It goes to fundraising and lobbying yet Dana a woman trying to save animals that actually has a rescue unlike many of the large organizations doesn’t have the write to have a drink or clothe herself. Are you people that are sending this out, seriously serious? How can you do this to a rescue organization saving animals lives? I know how long ROLDA has been around and they are saving lives. Does this matter to you? If so I would think before you are so quick to send out post such as these that could destroy this rescue. Where will the animals go then?
I spoke to Merritt Clifton this morning because I am a person that checks out facts. Mr Clifton supports Ms. Costin, because he has actually been to Romania and seen the good work she is doing for animals and has seen how she lives, sparsely at that. Have you ever visited this rescue you are sending damaging post out about?  This woman has saved many lives through the years, it’s sad how everyone is ready to hang her from the highest tree without even considering what she has done to help animals in Romania.  Anyone can write anything about anyone and everyone jumps on the bandwagon of attack.
No one knows for sure these things are fact but, they just pass this along never thinking about how much she may or may not have done for animals, it’s written on the internet so pass it on truth or not. There is no camaraderie in rescue. Anyone in cyberworld can write anything they want no matter how horrible and everyone jumps in with both feet ready to “Take them down” never considering they may be destroying one of the only rescues in the area never considering years of work that person has done to save animals lives.
I have seen so many good rescues and organizations destroyed. U.S. Animal Protection being one that has been attacked I know first hand how it feels. I have worked years for the protection of animals and some nut writes whatever they want and anyone without common sense is ready to cross post and attack never considering the nearly twenty years my group put in rescue. I have seen it happen to more people in rescue than I can count.
I know what she must be doing through. So many I worked with through the years have all backed away from doing any type of rescue as have I because of attacks just like this one on Dana Costin. Hundreds of lives were lost and will be lost that we could have saved.
I sure it wont be long until she has also has enough and leaves rescue.  People helping with this attack are only distracting her from the animals she is trying to save right now. Just another attack on a good rescuer is all I see here. The internet at one time I thought was the best thing to ever happen to rescue now I think differently.
The organization that should to be called out is HSUS. This organizations has taken in over a billion dollars and has not one shelter and during the biggest disaster for animals in history, sent animals to kill shelters. This just goes on ignored year after year. HSUS that is not helping animal rescues and sanctuaries in the U.S. that are in peril during this economic catastrophe yet is sitting on millions. Call out the organizations passing out six figure salaries not the small organizations barely surviving. This is the biggest problem the animal movement has, not the small rescue groups trying to save animals with little or no funding, like ROLDA.
I don’t believe for a minute this woman is living some extravagant life. So what if she bought herself a sweater or pair of shoes.  I have seen the witch hunt and hundreds of emails on rescue groups all week long. I rarely respond to these groups or rescue anymore because of the attacks on my organization and I was a damn good rescuer. I just feel compelled to say something because, I see what’s coming and hope it ends before this rescue shuts down permanently.
I personally have had enough and this just confirms it even more for me. Every year its someone new that is attacked and every year we lose another rescuer because of the internet attacks.
Please, those of you with common sense out there, think twice before sending post regarding ROLDA or any rescue group or organization without knowing the facts. Do not take just anyone’s words or documents that may or may not be fact. Furthermore read the documents don’t just forward out.  What if, just what if she is doing a good job and it’s simply someone with a vendetta slandering her? Think about checking the facts out before you ruin a woman trying to save animals lives. I don’t believe she got into rescue to simply abscond with money. This woman from all that I have been told loves the animals and wants to save them from horrible conditions in Romania, and is in it for that reason only. I am really saddened so many mean people have involved themselves in this movement. I can see no movement in this movement. Every year it gets worse for animals and we lose more rescues because of these types of internet attacks.
You people keep passing on your information and you will be sure to wipe out every good rescuer out there. Who will suffer? Who will be left in the cold? The animals.
Also, I notice is when someone responds to these types of post,  they person that sent it, will send it back to the person that wrote the damaging blog about the rescue and this exacerbates the problem. The person that started the blog then attacks the person that has an opinion and so there it goes again more internet fights and back and forth. Do not do this with my email. I am a member here and have been for years and you do not have my permission to do so. This was meant for this group only and do consider its a violation of the terms of Yahoo and this group.  I am not in this to get into a war,  I have an opinion and I am entitled to that without fear of being attack for my opinion.

Charity review from Hege(Norway)

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

We decided to adopt a dog from the ROLDA’s Adoption Center in September 2011. Due to regulations in Norway regarding rabies vaccine, we had to wait for him to come.

During the time we have waited, we decided to adopt a second dog, this time from the Rolda large shelter. The dog had been there for more than a year, and being an older dog, we wanted to also give her a new and loving home. From we made the decision to adopt, it only took 3 days before she was home and safe with us.
The dog was taken to the vet, and was reported to be in good health, had an EU-passport for dogs, and all the papers in order. Norway is very strict when it comes to importing animals, and so far there have been no problems with dogs arriving from ROLDA.

Many dogs have come to Norway, Holland and the UK from the larger shelter, and they have not been starved or sick, even though some people like to tell “everyone” that this place is hell for dogs. I will post photos of my dog, taken the day after she arrived on the 27th of October this year.

Since I adopted I have not been asked to donate money, and I have only paid for planeticket and the kennel for travel. I think every life matters, and even if people have a different opinion regarding ROLDA, I think the dogs should be everyone’s priority. They deserve the chance for a good home, no matter where they come from.
My personal experience with ROLDA/Dana Costin: all my e-mails and questions answered. Received an adoption contract on e-mail and in regular mail. Received receipts for what I paid, airline ticket etc. I have never been asked to donate money. I have a wonderful healthy dog lying beside me, and are looking forward to no 2 coming in 2 days. There are always two sides to a story, and I think people should hear the other side too.
The ROLDA representative in Norway, is a wonderful person who works very hard for these dogs to be rehomed. Some people work hard to help the dogs, and some people are more busy with trying to destroy ROLDA, and don’t care about the ROLDA dogs at all!
There are people who have posted comments here(on facebook), that are so rude and abusive, than one really have to wonder, if they really expect to be taken seriously! In Norway, people are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. People are not convicted and sentenced on the internet, and surely not by people who act like the accuser, the judge and the jury, all in one person.
Please let me tell you about my “personal meeting” with people who seem to have a personal vendetta going on against ms Costin and ROLDA.
I was told about a FB page that said that ROLDA keep 500 dogs in a concrete prison. Some friends of mine told me that their wallposts were deleted, and asked me to try. I posted wallposts on this page, mainly because I noticed that the info on this page was not updated and correct.
The renovation and building work at the large shelter to improve the conditions were not mentioned, nor the fact that many dogs from this shelter have been rehomed in Norway, Holland and UK.
I posted photos from the renovation and the new beds at the large shelter, renovation at the small adoption center, the new veterinarian clinic, and also posted photos of my dog.
I really thought that people and admin on this page would be happy to learn that the condition in the shelter and the dog’s health, were not as described in the info on this page. The renovation and new buildings are documented to the public on ROLDA’s website, so everyone interested in the truth could easily update the info on this FB page.
My “personal meeting” with this group of people who deliberately misinform about ROLDA’s large shelter, was not very pleasant. This group of people is also writing negative reviews here on this site. Same people who say they want the truth to come out, and at the same time misinform and refuse to update the info on their own page.
I was nothing but polite, I just informed that improvements and renovations were done and are going on, and posted photos. I told them about my dog, which had arrived Norway in good health, along with other dogs from the large shelter.
Were they happy to learn this? No they were not, so they had to question from where the money came, and WHY it hadn’t been done sooner, and finally they took credit for the work being done.
If it hadn’t been for this group’s slander and gossip, they call it pressure, ROLDA never would have renovated.
I guess some people think very highly of themselves, and really think that slander and accusations are the right tools when trying to make a change. I guess it would be very hard for these people to understand, that planning and doing this kind of renovation takes time. And ROLDA also needed their biggest sponsor to agree, Arcelor Mittal, to increase fundings for the renovation.
People working against ROLDA, only contributed to less donations, they didn’t donate a single nail to this project, and didn’t help the ROLDA dogs.
The FB page’s admin, stated in a wallpost that Ms Costin was banned from the page because of abusive comments. Still 20 hours after Ms Costin was banned and could not answer, the admin and others continued to ask questions and demanding her to answer.
Very nice trick, to mislead people into thinking she didn’t answer about the dogs in the shelter.
I was told to speak about the dogs and ONLY the dogs, or else I too would be banned. But admin and the others had no trouble writing about their personal opinion and all their so called “evidence”.
I was told to read “where did my donation go”, and I said I had read the info there, and the info on “who hurts Romanian dogs?”
I said my main concern is the dogs, and I don’t think the “war” going on the internet between different groups, are helping any dogs. People are suspicious regarding Romania as it is, and the only ones loosing here are the dogs.
I think ROLDA dogs have the same value as the other dogs, doesn’t matter to them what your opinion on ROLDA is. My dog was saved from the streets and the dogcatchers, and thanks to ROLDA, she is now happy in Norway, getting all the love she deserves. When informing the people attacking ROLDA, the admin said to me: “Are you sure this is not a stolen Romanian dog?
” I also like to add that when I was discussing with the admin who used the FB page’s name, she send me a FB request for friendship using her personal name. She did not inform me that she was admin and the one I was discussing ROLDA with.
I have nothing to hide on my FB, but really, when people insult me, I don’t welcome a friend request from that same person. I find it very insulting, suggesting that my dog must be stolen, just because she is now happy and was not sick or starved!
Who needs to steal a dog in Romania, and especially an older dog 6-7 years old, crossbreed and not the prettiest dog in the world.? To keep her in a safe place and feed her, and then wait for a year, for someone like me to adopt her.? Then make me pay ONLY for planeticket and kennel?
When people who respond and comment on a wallpost from Rolda, later on deny ever having seen it, I call them liers! ROLDA and Costin have to deal with this people the whole time, I was shocked and sick of it after just a couple of days!
They don’t listen, they just have one agenda, and that is to hurt ROLDA and Costin.
If some 500 dogs are being hurt in the process, they really don’t care.
You may ask yourself why they do this, but thinking about the fact that these people are representing organizations that are fighting to get a bigger piece of the cake; donations and our support, it really isn’t hard to figure out. I guess one has a lot to win by badmouthing other rivals who are in the same “business”.

I was also contacted by people in personal messages, telling me what to think and mean. I was also lied to again, the same people I see in here too.
When people lie to me and misinform, I will always wonder what else they are lying about.
Especially when the same people will profit from doing this.
Somebody lied to me and said that dogs at ROLDA’s large shelter were almost all in very bad shape, starved and sick. When informing that my dog was not starved, this person said she was one on the lucky dogs who managed to get hold of food.
Well, she is 6.5 kg, shy and very submissive around people and other dogs. In our home, she doesn’t even steel food from the cat or the bunny. She is such a sweetheart and we all love her very much.
