Fundraiser Details

Mirandas Rescue in Fortuna, CA, is under formal investigation (since May) for several allegations relating to the harming of animals, which we cannot go into detail about, however, involve multiple instances of harm to animals and also a key theme is greed.  A paid Private Investigator has been hired, and appropriate action is being taken with the evidence acquired. 

Evidence is being gathered, and witnesses have come forward, but again, unfortunately we cannot go into detail without the risk of jeopardizing the case.  We can however reveal the following publicly available information:
- Click here for invoice for the vetting of 52 animals of which 39 were euthanized as instructed by Mirandas Rescue (of which 38 were cats)
- Despite claims on their website that they receive no Government funding, Mirandas Rescue in fact DOES receive funding from the Goverment, and there is evidence that Shannon has sought to exploit this arrangement to the detriment of the taxpayer*.
-  Mirandas has taken in many dogs, in particular pitbulls who have displayed some aggression, demanding $500+ to take in the dog and train them.  Numerous dogs are unaccounted for.   Since Marianna Mullins has gone public with her issues with this rescue, dogs are being returned suddenly.  UPDATE: SHANNON MIRANDA HAS UPDATED HIS WEBSITE ACKNOWLEDGING THAT HE WILL EUTHANIZE ANIMALS HE "considered dangerous"

-  A family of pitbulls were recently surrendered on Mirandas Rescue's property.  The rescue kept the pups and adopted them out, however surrendered the mother to a local shelter.  It wasn't until the rescue was named publicly four days after the stray hold was up that the rescue went to get the mother back from the shelter.  Numerous conflicting excuses were used for her being dumped there in the first place.

We now need to come together to conclude the investigation and bring justice to the abhorrent crimes we believe have been committed by this rescue.

We simply cannot let this go on. These animals can't speak up for themselves, we are all they have.  If you care about the welfare of animals, please donate to help us expose the truth about this rescue. 


* The link below will take you to the City of Rio Dell meeting records of 11/8/12. If you go to page 39 you will read how Shannon wanted to raise his monthly billing to the City of Rio Dell to $2500 or $30,000 a year just to take in 38 dogs and 27 cats or $461.54 per animal to a community of just 3400 people! Miranda had stated he took in 115 dogs but the police records which are also shown reveal every dog brought into Miranda Rescue and 38 dogs were brought to Miranda NOT 115. http://www.riodelltimes.com/CityCouncilRioDellCalifornia/11.8.12Agenda/11.8.12AgendaPacket.pdf
Check this out, the link below shows the City of Ferndale had to pay ONLY $450 a month to Shannon for their animal control. This shows exactly how much he was trying to rip off the City of Rio Dell by charging them $2500 to take in just 5.4 animals per month. If you look up both cities you'll see Rio Dell is only twice the size of Ferndale yet he wanted to charge Rio Dell almost 6x as much per month.

Buddy boy has made himself right at home with his Canadian adopter!!

We are beyond thrilled that he finally has his deserved and long-awaited forever home! This is after being falsely deemed "aggressive" and "unadoptable" (and thus at risk of euthanization in line with Miranda's Rescue's stated policy to euthanize dogs considered "dangerous and unadoptable".)

Here is a message from Buddy's adopter...

"There's is not a single regret I have in adopting him, as he as become as much a part of my family as my fiancé has, and in less time! Seeing his wagging tail greeting me when I come home after a long day at work, it just puts a smile on your face. After three years with the name buddy we decided to just keep it as such. And man does he keep us busy! His energy never seems to stop!! But I still get my puppy cuddles and there's nothing better then that when your feeling down."

Thank you eternally for all those that believed in Buddy
