I began following Forever homeward bound rescue when a scared pit bull named Red went across FB. He broke my heart and followed him to his rescue.

I watched as he became more secure and blossomed under Lynne's care.

Then I noticed gradual changes began in the way things were being handled. The request for donations and youcaring posts became more frequent. Red flag #1.

Then there was Lynne's personal dog who had cancer and needed an operation. She put out a plea to help with his medical costs. Sadly he didn't make it and another plea to help with the cost of cremation. 

Then a dog named Tiny appeared. He was to go to another rescue but it turned out to be a dump and FHBR kept Tiny. Til he "nipped " her mom and the state was doing a home inspection so she could get her home health care license. He went to a boarding facility made to look like a training facility with Jennifer James of Rocking M Ranch, I believe it is. Jennifer James runs an overpriced, fake boarding and training from her home....Tiny was seriously neglected while there in her care.  (Another dog named Myles was there after Tiny and he too, was still emaciated while in her care).  Tiny supposedly attacked another dog and the boarding facility wanted him gone. Then poor Tiny went to yet another rescue for training with Nikole McCurry and Kyle Schwab. Don't know whole story but he was PTS by that rescue for supposed aggression.  

Then FHBR merged with Hooks Hounds and Hisses a bogus rescue run by Blaze Thall. Continued to watch the page and noticed they had too many dogs personals and rescues around 12 or 14 then the constant requests for donations for spaying neutering shots chips etc. Several personal dogs were spayed and vetted with donated funds. Dont think thats legal. Then 2 dogs died one of which never got medical care because they had no money. Then a puppy got sick with parvo and more requests for donations. They seemed to think everyone else should be supporting the rescue 100% monetarily and have no funds in reserve of any kind for emergencies. Very irresponsible.

Neither of these rescues are 501c3 non profit status. It was stated that they have the right to take a salary for running the rescue or use funds donated to the rescues elsewhere. Pretty sure neither is legal.

Additional info:

Blaze Thall, also has a history of domestic abuse against women and has two active restraining orders on him right now in San Diego.  

Blaze and Lynne are both having constant fundraisers begging for donations, yet they are not a 501 c 3 charity and they are not reporting these donations as income to the State of California or to the I.R.S.  They also keep having pups die in their care because many of the pups and dogs are unvaccinated, not yet spayed or neutered, and they do not have the funds to vet them.  They are both broke and barely work any hours.  They are using this "rescue" to illegally and fraudulently solicit donations to pay their own bills and to vet their personal dogs.  It is irresponsible for them to continue to take in more dogs when they cannot even afford to take care of their personal dogs.  Animal Control has been out and cited them already also.  That is why they used donations for their "rescue" dogs to fix their own personal dogs.  They keep having these seriously ill pups that need to see a vet and no way to provide the care, so they post pics and pleas and beg for money and IF it's not enough to vet the dog and the dog dies, then they blame people for not donating enough and for spreading what they call rumors, as people questions their morals, ethics, and their behavior as they continue to neglect animals and fraudulently collect money.  People are donating to them by paying directly to vet and to their many fundraisers and pay pal accounts.

The lady that said they are not a 501(c)(3) doesn't know what SHE's talking about...  A Public Benefit Corporation is the very definition of a 501(c)(3). 

Trust me, I hate this guy and this organization for the elder abuse they are putting me through right now, and a judge in Riverside County, California will rule on that very issue on September 21st.

Here's what the IRS website says about them:

https://apps.irs.gov/app/eos/details/

"HOOKS HOME BOUND RESCUE INC

Determination Letter

A favorable determination letter is issued by the IRS if an organization meets the requirements for tax-exempt status under the Code section the organization applied.

Final Letter(s)

... which says:

"We're pleased to tell you we determined you're exempt from federal income tax under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 501(c)(3)."

As much as I hate it, the dumbass that says they aren't a 501(c)(3) is dead WRONG!

False Ripoff report

 As many continue to share this rip off report as if was the truth do your real research! Bridget Sherman has stated she is not part of HHBR! The email address "pet advocacy projects yahoo.com" is an invalid email! There is no "San Diego,Arizona" Blaze Thall does not have 2 restraining orders against him in San Diego, CA Blaze Thall has never sold puppies while being homeless as one post claims! As for donations requested with all the medical on the dogs: as a rescue you will always search for funds for a dogs needs! For who ever followed "Lynne Dickens" prior to Blaze Thall moving there, stated "the request for funds had increased", well sure as rescue activity was increasing too! So it only makes sense as the request for funds would increase!

As for using funds for personal dogs: as Blaze was informed "Red, Possum, Harmony, Shorty and lilly" were all rescue dogs! Lilly was a "Foster" of California Bully Crew Rescue, but no paperwork was found to proove the fact. Just verbal knowledge! As a rescue saving animals if Lynne wished to keep these dogs she should have paid for them. Other dogs there at the time Leo(Blazes personal that was completely up to date)Cowgirl (blazes rescue dog that eventually got adopted) Honey Bear(Lynne's rescue dog that eventually died in a dog fight at Lynne's after blaze left her for good) The other dogs listed in this post have been explained! So do ur research and find the lies in this post! Ripoff report does not allow removal of any post made, even if it is a lie! We have tried arbitration and since there is no real point of contact no one can be arbitrated! So again here is another post that is based on lies to defame someone!

I have never been associated with or had working knowledge of Hooks Home Bound Rescue and certainly don't help their organization. How this misinformation was obtained is unknown, but it is completely inaccurate. 

I know of Blaze Thall and he had helped me at a couple of events but I have nothing to do with him or his organization or the other people mentioned in this report. I expect my name to be cleared as I have done absolutely nothing wrong. 

All my rescues in my care have been spayed/neutered are current on all vaccines, dewormed, microchipped and receeive vet care if they need it.

I want my name cleared and a public apology from my accuser.

Rebuttal to Katie Brynelsen's Falsities

#7Consumer Comment

Fri, September 12, 2014

Unfortunately, the average consumer will read Katie Brynelsen's defamations and falsities with no foundation whatsoever, and believe it , because.....it's online so it must be true. Before the public relies on the false information found in this report, they NEED to be aware that this is something that Katie does to MANY good rescues, just because she can. I suppose she enjoys the thrill of thinking she has the power to destroy good people.

I do not know Lynne, however, I do know Blaze quite well and can assure everyone reading this that he does:

1) NOT abuse dogs. 

2) NOT own Cowgirl as his personal dog. She, however IS a fosterling of the rescue, and has been for close to two years. She has been socialilzed, vetted, spayed, microchipped. Everything that a good rescue should do for it's canine members. He does own an older black lab mix that was neutered years ago.

If Katie did a little research before publishing this sort of triteness she would know this.

I do not believe that most people think taking picture, or video of a dog constitues making the dog SUFFER! No, Ms. Brynelsen that is not suffering, and your trying to portray it as such, does a HUGE disservice to the animals that ARE truly being abused, and are suffering. Maybe she should try focusing on HELPING abused animals, instead of being the "rescue troll" that she has become. 

If she wasn't harming good people, and helpless animals, it would actually be quite funny.

To all the people reading this...PLEASE do yourselves, the animals, and rescues trying to stay afloat so they can continue helping, and talk to Blaze themselves. He is really very open when approached but those that are truly interested.

  If you don't know what you are talking about , don't give advice. No where is this rescue saying they are a 501c3. The are saying they are non-profit.  Form 13909 from IRS.GOV is for 501c3 only!! People claiming to be 501c3. Get your facts straight. 

   The reason this rescue has no funds in reserve is that another rescue dumped their dogs in this rescue by getting them to help transport dogs for them and never picking them up. Then two more dogs were dumped on their front lawn. Then two dogs which were rescued from the desert and were seen by VCA Desert Animal Hospital and given their first puppy shots, became ill and both puppies died from a congenital problem. This used up all the reserves and then some.

  Then the puppy that was dumped on the lawn became sick with parvo. She was taken to VCA and treated. She has since returned home and is being cared for. This put a further strain , just when the light at the end of the tunnel was in sight. Due to all the circumstances, the rescue has been using Lynne's personal funds. 

  What would you have them do? Turn the dogs over to animal control? Not try to get funds to get them to the point they can be adopted? 

  Most of what has been asked for has been for vet bills. The vet information was supplied and the vet was directly paid. Bills were posted. Are the vet's in on this?? PLEASE. 

  Now they are asking for help for a worker who has come upon hard times. She has been hospitalized TWICE. Her med list alone was over $900.00. Then add to that her husband walked out . The help given has greatly helped her and IT ALL HAS GONE TO HER.

  Obviously you have a personal problem with this rescue. Maybe you should slither out behind your rock and let us really know what is behind this ridiculous charade. Please.

  By the way, I am no longer a member of this rescue, but was, so I know what I am talking about!

This rescue exists online only, as they are not a real 501 c 3 charity, yet they continue to solicit donations for animals and even people's personal issues while saying they have a real 501 c 3 backing them.  They refuse to reveal who this 501 c 3 is.  They are not reporting any of the monies they collect as income to the State of California or to the I.R.S.  They are not using all of the funds collected for their intended purpose either.  This rescue is ran by Roberta Lynne Dickens and Blaze Mitchell Thall with help of Suzette Cumberland, Bridget Sherman, Toni Reynolds, and some others.  

Blaze and Lynne take in dogs without the proper funds, then beg for funds while the dogs suffer and even die because they are having to go without the needed medical care. Instead of working, they choose to use animals to support themselves. In addition, they continue to harass and threaten anyone who asks questions of them.....questions that any legit rescue would answer.  

Since they are acting as a rescue, they should be able to provide all financials yet they are not doing this either.  They just collected over $500 for one of their friends and are still asking for money on it and it has all been paid via their "rescue's" pay pal account.  Blaze and Lynne have also used rescue funds and admitted to it, to get their personal animals spayed/neutered and shots (I'm guessing because animal control told them too, but that still leaves many of their "rescue" animals without vetting).  Animal control has also been out and cited them for being over their pet limit.  Last time I checked they had 16 dogs in their care!  

Please help us by shutting down this fake rescue and getting all the animals in their care away from them before anymore get sick and die.  Please hold them accountable legally and criminally.

More Lies on this report

#10REBUTTAL Owner of company

Sat, August 30, 2014

"I know she has 3 personal dogs and Blaze has Cowgirl." Intersting lie considering "she" does not have three personal dogs and Blaze does not have Cowgirl. Cowgirl has been and will always be a rescued dog. Cowgirl has been available for adoption for over a year, and has been posted on multiple sites as available and any item for her medical Blaze has paid for personally as each rescuer does.Sshe has done multiple homechecks where she did not fit in and is still looking for her forever home. The three dogs that "she" does have would be intersting to know what three you are claiming. Since Blaze's Person dog(which he does have one and it is not Cowgirl) is never mentioned this goes to show again facts are never checked. 

"Lynne and Blaze have now both mentioned that Toni is giving them financial support." Where has this been mentioned? It has never been mentioned ever, so here is another lie and also is untrue. 

"We assume that is the rescue backing they are speaking of" when has an assumption been fact? In your assumption this proves again you do not have your facts straight!

And on your previous ripoff report that you had posted as evidence. The individual that defames rescues is posted on their rebuttal. So its interesting to see the same names that bash rescuers keep popping up and the same pattern of harrassment happening to multiple different rescues and rescuers. For example here on this site and many others. And also multiple people bashing rescues and rescuers use the internet with multipe different aka's or log ins and try to be friend a rescuer on one log in and bash on the other. Once again this ripoff report is a lie to harm the animals not the rescuers who saved them since ultimately, that is what is truelly happening. 

Another lie even on the first report "San Diego, Arizona" there is no such place as "San Diego, Arizona"

First, Lynne's rebuttal is bullshit. I know she has 3 personal dogs and blaze has cowgirl. Lynne's are 2 females and 1 male.  Plus she is fostering Lily for Toni Reynolds of California Bully Crew Rescue (CBC).  Lynne and Blaze have now both mentioned that Toni is giving them financial support, so we assume that is the rescue backing they are speaking of in their other posts.  

 

Here is a Rip Off Report on California Bully Crew http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/California-Bully-Crew-aka-Tamara-Nolan/Los-Angeles-California/California-Bully-Crew-aka-Tamara-Nolan-Tamara-Nolan-Ana-Jimenez-Toni-Reynolds-Mary-Etz-1140864

 

Please help us report this "rescue" for fraud. They are soliciting donations but are not a real rescue. Neither rescue is being transparent or honest.  Please complete this Form 13909 from IRS.GOV and then fax to 214-413-5415 so the IRS can look into this "rescues" activities.  Please make sure to include California Bully Crew rescue in the fraud report.

Lynne Dickens and Blaze Thall are both idiots.  Sometimes I am just boggled by their idiocy.  For the last couple days since this report was posted they have been questioning everyone and I even hear they are harassing some woman for writing this because they blame her for filing this report, lol, idiots.  So many people know about them and their crooked ways, so I can see how they must have a long list of possiblities, especially here in California. Plus, they are just mad that this information is being made public. They are mad because it is true. They barely work any hrs a week if at all. They are broke.  They do take in dogs that exceed their pet limit and dogs that they cannot afford to vet so animal control has been out. I invite everyone to do an open records request. I will do one also and post any other animal control reports here.  They have had dogs getting sick and dying including pups that got sick because they were not properly vaccinated.  They do allow the animals to suffer while they pose them for photos and take lots of photos to post all over the internet begging for donations (money) for their rescue - their rescue that is not incorporated or a 501 c 3.  They did use donations to vet their own personal dogs and I believe they even posted the vet bills for them showing everyone.  They and some of their pos friends actually think it's ok to use some of the money to support themselves also and to pay to care for and vet their personal dogs.  They think it is ok to have animal control violations.  They think it is ok to break the laws. They think it is ok because all they do is keep blaming other people....if, or i should say when, a dog dies they blame others by saying stuff like other people didnt donate enough money or they didn't donate fast enough, so it is their fault they died.  Then, they keep asking for more money because they have constant fundraiser issues...so now it's the fundraiser website's fault, etc...all the time, it is always something.  There is more evidence and examples that are not yet listed on this website yet and I will add them after the new evidence has been verified.  Everyone, just look at the evidence for yourself, watch them in action yourself, look at that animal control report, do an open-records request with animal control to get the records for yourself....any responsible person with any common sense will quickly see these two for what they truly are...LIARS, SCAMMERS, ABUSERS.

I woud like to clear the facts of this report. First of all Yes Red was rescued and is doing fine, even though he is still recovering emotionally. The next thing is the dog named Tiny, as there is currently an active law suit againt the people who had him killed without our authorization; He was to go for extensive training due to his aggressive behaviours towards other pets. This trainer was not even the facility listed. The facility that was to train Tiny only had him 6 hours before they put him to sleep, once again with out informing us until 4 hours after pts.

We also have never heard of or have had the 3rd dog,named Myles,  mentioned in this so called ripoff report.

As for the dogs being rescued there are receipts for where every penny has gone to the vets office and low cost spaying events. As for using donations for my personal pets, another lie. We will clear this up also as I had already done so on the social media and this report is done out of maliciousness and false statements.

For 2 and half months out of our personal pockets we had supproted every rescue dog that came in to our care which was about 400.00 a month. All my perosnal bills have been ignored and neglected for the care of the animals.  One dog I am fostering was paid for by the rescue that was 55.00  After spending every dime we have had,  we were assisted by private donors 310.00 all went to  the rescue dogs in our care. The so called ticket the have shown was paid out of my pay check I had gotten 5 days later after getting the ticket. As for personal dogs mentioned that were spayed and vetted these dogs are still in the rescue but on hold due to medical and emotional reasons. 

 

We have spent thousands of dollars on our animals constantly as the bills add up. Each person who donates is a private donator and they are informed it is a private donation. Obviously the person who filled this report has no real reference to our rescue and has never seen our animals or donated to us. Let alone they have not even adopted any rescue animal from us. As for reporting funds this person can not verify that information for they do not have access to our tax information.

As for fundraising more frequently we had 2 rescues that were saved from the desert, that died of a genetic disease and nothing we could do about it since they were 5 weeks old, when they were saved. We tried but could not save the twin pups, one was pts the other died at home, both diagnosis with the same issue. All we could do is make them as condirtable as possible. Within a month time another rescue dog, that was dumped at our front door with her mother, came down with Parvo that bill $1400.00 plus all the costs associated with disinfecting the front and back yards, every room in the house clothes and everything. We currnetly still have her in isolation until the vet releases her. Which we are constantly bleaching, washing clothes to keep the disease from spreading any further. Which of course costs money. We have posted every vet bill every receipt everything as proof where funds have been sent or used.. As far as i am concerned this report is a freudlent report and anyone who files a report should be more thorouhly investigated as such reports can ruin a reputation. 

As for the reports on Blaze Thall these reports have to do with his personal relationships that he has been fighting in court for years and has spent alot of money fighting constantly on. There is no actual domestic violence here, as these are no criminal reports. criminal reports the general public would not have access to. As for posting his Date of birth, ID Number, and Social sedurity nuber this is a federal offense.  

As for our personal dogs there is only Three, a 6+ year old Black Lab mix owned by Blaze, a 9+ year old Corgi Mix owned by Lynne and a year old Long Haired Chihuahua owned by Lynne. the animals we have in our care under the rescue are not these animals. Out of the rescued animals only 2 are from the shelters all others are from the desert and reported correctly as strays; as we do follow the California law on stray holds. During this stray hold time nothing can be done to the animal, unless it is life threatening. One Pup during its stray hold shown signs and was seen for Parvo, as mentioned earlier.

As for personal finances again, I repeat personal finances no one can say what kind of employment Blaze or Lynne has as it is covered again under the privacy act of 1974 as is the personal information posted on Blaze.

I shall quote this report for a second "People are donating ..... directly to vet" so how does this put funds into the personal pockets of Lynne or Blaze.

 

Now Clarity on the citation posted, We shall go down the ciatation by animal: Red-Rescue dog, Harmonie-Rescue dog, Lilly-rescue dog Lynne is fostering for another 501c3 rescue.  But this citation was paid out of our personal pocket. And Notice we did talk to the officer and there is not a signature on "received by" this violating our rights on private property. As they entered with out a warrant and refused any item given to them.  

 

As per the posting by "OC Shelter dogs" "Head of caring Friends Julie" At the time this was posted neither was Blaze Homeless nor "gathering dogs for $$" As for the dogs he was networking from his home at that time the 501c3 that saved these animals admits "yes that whole thing that Tamara did with Nena+8 was a bad deal but I guarantee no money was stolen that is just ridiculous"

 

Once again fosters are not named publically to protect them from hate and harrasment like this rip off report. This again goes on Privacy Act of 1974.

As for our Non Profit Status we are falling under another rescue who is supporting us who is 501c3.. So legally all these animals and all our funding belong to them besides our personal animals. They are aware of our actions and constantly check in on us. This 501c3 has stepped up to cover us until we receive our own not for profit status.
