    Breaking news


    Hello my name is Timothy Gallagher reporting some breaking news regarding the animal rescue group . The Guardians of Rescue I have been dealing with them for about (1) one year now in the town of coram . They have helped me and other's with house hold pets. As with the dogs/cats .the guardians of rescue has been helping multiple times myself / residents in coram on long island in new York.i live in privately owned house in coram that rooms are rented out to social services recipients. I happen to be one of them as of this past summer months of may through out the season of this year 2013 guardians of rescue has been helping me with trying to relocate feral cats . guardians of rescue has also saved some cats here relocating some of the cats that were abandoned that found there way to where I live in coram . Recently in the last few months my cat Mayble was abandoned in april 2013 she was pregnant. my cats offsprings were born in the house all did not survive due to my cat was a kitten herself when she gave birth to the babies did not produce any milk to nurse her babies. Guardians of Rescue did not take it very seriously by the time one of the guardians of rescue made it out here (3) three kittens were dead fourth kitten lived but died days later . one hour before rescue arrived all kittens were alive . The guardians of Rescue can be demanding / controlling with the owners of the animal they are helping . one of the guardians of rescue said to me to have my cat spayed they would do it for me ; fine no problem but when Karen spoke to me demanding to spay my cat also saying my house cat would have to have her ears tipped . I said no way I will pay to get my cat spayed she is not getting her ears cut my cat is not a feral cat that needs to be marked . so I had her spayed myself at save -a - pet in port Jefferson . okay now guardians of rescue is working together with save-a- pet clinic under the same director dori. I requested for them to look into my cats health condition bad breath . so now in the coming months ahead October someone dropped off a friendly house kitten people in this area do not like cats . The cats have been injured/ poisoned no one knows who is responsible for this s.p.c.a. has investigated the issue . Guardians of Rescue director has come to pick up this kitten I brought it to her attention once again about my cats bad breath she said it maybe a infection in her gums she will make arrangements to have my cat taken care of at the clinic . okay we're in November all of a sudden on 11/13/13 at night my cats in extreme pain she can not eat puss drooling out of her mouth I called up guardians of rescue agent Frankie so I also called P.E.T.A. for help this was a life/death situation now for my cat in need to get to a hospital for immediate attention . so unable to get her to hospital until next day 11/14/13 in am hours to grady animal hospital in Sayville . guardians of rescue took care of saving my cats life paying the bill for emergency surgery . My cat had infection that would have killed her only way to stop infection was to extract teeth . so the grady s animal hospital performed surgery on my cat extracting (14) fourteen teeth from my cats mouth . next day I go to pick up my cat from hospital they would not give no instructions they just wanted me to take my cat and go so my friend says lets go Tim . I said I'm going no where until I get special instructions how she should eat or what they were not going to tell me nothing until I asked they also told me my cat was already missing (12)twelve teeth so now my cat is left with (4) four teeth I asked to obtain a copy of my cats medical treatment in there animal hospital they refused to give me any information just a copy of her dental extractions with no special treatment recommendations on paper. so the hospital says they could not give no information on my cat treatment because it is classified under guardians of rescue since they paid for my cats treatment. I get home from picking up my cat now the next day / the next night I noticed a stitch hanging out of my cats mouth I said I 'll be damned the hospital did not even tell me my cat got stitches in her mouth . so I called up guardians of rescue asking them to obtain a copy of my cats medical record no reply ? okay so I called other members of guardians of rescue to ask the director Dori Scofield if It would be possible to obtain my cats medical records what was done to her in the hospital . no ones replying to my messages so I emailed the guardians of rescue asking her she totally did not acknowledge my question about obtaining copy of my cats medical treatment in the hospital . I know she got my email because she replied back telling me my cat got dissolvable stitches would not tell me nothing more . you think this is right I am the owner of my cat just because they paid to save my cats life they refuse to give me papers saying what was done to her in the hospital . okay that weekend there was a desperate need of help from guardians of rescue one of the my out side feral cats kittens was shot or bitten I even emailed the picture to the rescue agency called them on urgent message they would not respond so now weeks go by they still will not respond . Now I happen to be on social services took off from my worksite at the department of labor to rush my cat to hospital when I gave them paper from gradys hospital saying that mycat was brought in for emergency visit and picked up after surgery they told me taken time off for my family cat is inexcusable I should have just let my cat die basically what they saying animals are not worth taking time off for saving lives. what would you make of all this certainly unacceptable
