In the recent FHOTD article, Fugs makes two interesting statements:
"It’s not glamorous, and you don’t get attention for it. Everybody wants the rush of the Big Save and all of the attention that goes with it."
"Sending money to a reputable rescue with an overall good track record is always going to be a safer use of your money than sending it to a private individual with iffy facilities and a questionable reputation."
Given Fugs history of taking credit for the work of others, basking the glory of work done by others, and begging and receiving personal rescue donations which she later refused to provide receipts and financial records for I'm surprised that she would even bring these subjects up.
She goes on about the Auction Horses board when she says, "damn, that board is full of some of the worst known bottom-feeding horse neglecting ignoramuses that aren’t welcome anywhere else, and people are funding their idiocy…Let’s just say that if a half-dozen people are telling you that someone is bad news, you might want to take note of that before you buy them a rescue horse they can’t otherwise afford." Yet, this is typical of Cathy. Characterizing rescues that she doesn't have personal involvement with. Comments like this should be viewed with scepticism when she offers no proof for her assertions.

Please, for the love of god, stop it!
