The hypocrisy is overwhelming, especially considering the allegations of misappropriate of donation funds for personal expenses and lavish lifestyle.
Q was imported from China. She was difficult to place in a home and needed behavioral training. Instead, Wagmor euthanized her. What steps do you try to help resolve her anxiety issues before putting her to sleep?
In the Class action lawsuit, Melissa Bacelar allegedly euthanized Q but continued to raise donations for her care after she had been killed.
"representing donations were needed for caring for two dogs named Faith and Q, when in fact the dogs were euthanized...
She was put to sleep because she was difficult to place. Allegedly, Wagmor continued to collect donations for her care even after she was euthanized.
Defendants also pay Delacruz to provide services to Defendants. Delacruz is the “medical coordinator” for WAGMOR PETS NON-PROFIT but often times Defendants elect to have Delacruz provide medical care in leiu of actually having the dogs see a licensed veterinarian.
Once the dogs and puppies have been purchased and it is discovered that they are ill, Defendants further engage in false, misleading, deceptive and fraudulent representations to avoid liability and place the blame on the consumers.
Desperate owners who are seeking help from BACELAR to treat their illand dying dogs are being forced to execute non-disclosure agreements in order to receive assistance.

It is wonderful to learn that Wagmor worked to find a rescue organization that would pull Missy from the shelter and work on her rehabilitation. It is still shocking that Missy was taken back to the shelter, but a huge relief to know that Ms Bacelar contributed donations to Missy's training program.
YOU TOOK THE DOG BACK TO THE SHELTER?
Why this matters? It means that the majority of their dogs are NOT from high kill animal shelters and do not have PULL RIGHTS as an APPROVED Rescue within the County system. This is highly irregular within the Rescue Community
This is not necessarily a bad thing, however, she falsifies the rescue backstories, takes credit for other peoples hard manual labor and just shows up with the news crews & cameras.
