Death Row Dog Rescue/Diana Peters Scamming Money! Unethical!

4 of 4 Death Row Dog Rescue reviews

Diana Peters of Death Row Dog Rescue aka Save a Death Row Dog has been scamming innocent facebook fans out of their hard earned money. She is located in Oakland Park, FL (address also shows up as Ft Lauderdale, FL) She formerly ran her so called rescue out of Davie FL, and prior to that in Miami/Dade in the Redlands area. She keeps getting shut down, and moving on...

Court records show enormous fines she owes, as well as evictions, and an open case with the city of Davie, FL. (in court records Ms Peters has a long history of not paying her way ) Ms. Peters posts dogs for adoption on craigslist and facebook. she does not check references, or do home checks.

Ms Peters lets dogs and puppies die in her care as she denies them vet care. She self treats them. (and buries them in her yard)

Sick dogs get adopted out of her rescue covered in ticks, and some with substantial health issues. Some which are completely treatable , but she chooses not to. Has adopted out unspayed un- vetted dogs. Has adopted out sick dogs that later died.

She is unethical and inhumane.

While in Davie FL she would have volunteers adopt dogs out at a local Pet Supermarket. The manager after seeing the conditions of the dogs, and the ticks put an end to the adoptions there. Sick dogs with ticks should not be in a public place infecting customers pets.

On FaceBook she posts a dog in need and begs for donations, and they come in. On more than one occassion (see proof links below) Ms. Peters has been outed for her blatant scamming. She removes facebook posts and tells more lies, or just ignores.

Many people who have volunteered with her in the past and/ or adopted from her have come together on facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/Death-Row-Dog-Rescue-is-a-SCAM/248809461823314 to post their testimonials. Their original page was hacked, but they have not backed down and are active on facebook once again and testimonials are being re-posted.

Please be sure and read through all of the testimonies and posts.

A volunteer presented Ms Peters a $4000 check and none of the money was spent on the dogs, though a meeting was held and a budget for the funds was allocated. The dogs needed medicines and tick protection, and they were denied.

Diana Peters claims to have a 501c3 - but she takes donations and spends them directly on cigarettes, wine, groceries, rent, electric, water, cable, etc. .

Her face book page is death row dog rescue her website http://www.saveadeathrowdog.org , and if watched carefully on face book you can see her caught in lies and schemes on a regular basis.

Don't believe me, research her and her rescue. She is banned from many shelters throughout Florida. Call her local pounds MDAS 305-884-1101 , and Broward 954-359-1313 and mention her name - banned call Chipley - banned call Brevard -banned , and so many more.

She can not pull dogs from their facilities. Someone needs to ask themselves why a rescue can't rescue a dog?

Call another local rescue group... I have yet to meet one that speaks well of her.

Check her operating credentials on Florida Dept of State sunbiz.org and under charities and non profits on IRS.gov .

Check Broward County Clerk of Courts and Miami Dade clerk of Courts (search under Diana Peters, Peters, Diana, and then her addresses you find on those records there are also violations in her daughter Sonia's name also)

Check with code enforcement in Davie 954-693-8237 , and Oakland Park 954-630-4400 . also check with the code enforcement in her first location in the Redlands.

The below links are compiled evidence of her scamming and the face book page group that are posting testimonials and evidence .

These people are fanatical and crazy. Diana Peters stole my animal from a dog park because she thought he would "show well". Totally, nuts and money driven ! The "rescue" now occupies 1/2 of a duplex in Hollywood, Florida. There is barely space for a single pet. Yet, Peters pens the animals and chains them. A sad sad situation

Have you placed a stolen dog report? Do you know if she still has your dog? How very sad.
You should be sure to call Broward County Animal Care and place a complaint, make a police report, call code enforcement. The woman is not right. If you need help getting your dog back let us know. There are many dog lovers that would assist you.

Diana Peters of Death Row Dog Rescue took my dog from a local dog park and refuses to return it. This lady is a real nightmare. She lives in a tiny house with many pets that are badly neglected. I have no idea why she took my dog, ut she needs to give it back.

Jeff this was post over two years ago. The last comments were 5 months ago. Why are you stating this is all ***, and that time and effort should be spent on work that can be helpful.

Have you done your research? Have you called facilities and got their take on Diana Peters? Have you watched her doing the same old same old facebook money scamming she has always done? If not, why are you commenting? What do you have to add ?

Why are you assuming people have stopped time and not done any work that is helpful. Do I know you? NO do you know me? NO - so why are you assuming what I am or are not doing?

If you want to give your money to a scammer that neglects dogs, go ahead, no one is stopping you. But the info is out there for others to see, stop and do their homework. :eek If it saves a dogs life, it was time worth spent!!

It's news to me and I care. I think both sides of this "debate" have made mistakes but the fact is Mr. Manfredi is the only person involved who has apparently served time in prison for among other things "forgery, auto theft, aggravated battery". I'm sure Mrs. Peters has made mistakes in her past but the fact is you are accusing her of actions you've been convicted of and apparently sentenced to prison.

It is what it is. I guess the old saying "it takes one to know one". I don't know you or Sherry or Butkuss, or Peters but I do know facts. Maybe I'm missing something but when I checked I couldn't find any criminal record for Diana Peters.

The only reason I found this is I was considering donating to Mrs. Peters but after reading this I reconsidered. I question her judgement due to the fact that she ever associated with Mr. Manfredi. If she didn't do a simple google check before working with Mr. Manfredi, what other mistakes has she made.

I wish you all the luck in the world saving dogs. If I made any errors above, please correct as I pulled this off of public records via google search mugshots.

Truthfinder did you not do your research and see where Diana Peters owes almost a million in fines to the city of Davie FL?
Dig in court records in Miami Dade, Orlando area, and Broward county and you will find a lot on Diana Peters.
Just because you don't find a mugshot on someone doesn't mean they are not a criminal.
Mr Manfredi did not write this, his past does nothing to support or take away from the truth. The truth and facts are out ther for anyone to see.
Fact is if you donate to Diana you are supporting her not dogs. She is not a 501c3 non profit and does not account for her spending on booze and cigarettes.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see her pity stories and copies and pastes. Just question her on facebook about something and you will be blocked and deleted. The woman is a *** and lives off kind loving people, Glad to hear you reconsidered your donation. I hope you checked out who you donated to, sadly, Diana Peters is not the only *** who uses animals.

What is the outcome here for the animals???? You have to really wonder what is in Darcy Butkus and SherriLynn Manfredi's brains--to completely sever the chance for an animal to live and find a wonderful new home with love and caring to deliberately sabatoge their chance to live-and make it out of the pound alive--What is in their hearts to have them continually do these awful things to these animals--it is just beyond shocking to everyone and so difficult for us to ever understand their hate and uncaring for these animals--Are they getting the ones out and rescued from being killed at the pounds?? Are they taking the hundreds that they have sabatoged the only chance for them to live and getting them out??? So sad for the answer is absolutely NO_-and these dogs and puppies die--Just look at the mentality of these horrible people-Faking Diana Peters name above and posting ***-Do they think everyone is really *** here???--

Hi. I see that you are posting using Diana Peters' name. You don't know me but I can recognize Diana's writing style and your comment shows that you are not her. Anyways, if you want to pretend to be her that is your choice. I just have a few questions. What dogs are you talking about? Darcy had a great rescue event at an upscale mall in Boca Raton, Florida around a month ago. Did you see the media coverage of it? The mall has top of the line stores like Saks, Bloomingdales and Neiman Marcus and if you know anything about those stores you know they wouldn't allow someone who was not checked out to hold an event in the mall. If you are not talking about the dogs the media photographed with Darcy at the mall are you talking about the dogs that are seen in photos of Sherri pulling them from the pounds? Some of the dogs were dogs that Diana Peters (the real one) requested money for, claimed Diana would pull and then left to die at the pounds after getting the money. No I am not talking about Polly and her pups even though Diana pulled the same scam with those dogs. When you speak to Diana you should ask her when the last time she actually pulled a dog from a pound in Florida was. Then ask Diana was she is so jealous that Darcy and Sherri are saving dogs. She should be happy that they are not banned like she is. Instead she resorts to name calling and making up lies about them. Did she tell you how she tried to sue Sherri and even the police testified against... Show more

: Diana Peters This is why I get even more disappointed and really angry with certain Humans-When the Darcy Butkus and the SherriLynn Manfredi people lie and spent their time slandering my rescue when all I am diligently every day just trying to get a few out BEFORE the picture above-No I for sure do not put the entire blame on the Animal Servises people--But I have dealt with Miami Dade for over 4 years and Yes they could chose a better way than the Photo above-They are in about 6 chapters of my "Awakening" book that will be published very shortly-The proof and for sure the "Truth" will set these innocent animals Free-Thank you all for standing with me and if you get Rotten messages from the Darcy Butkus or SherriLynn Manfredi-(or so many of their FAKE names) just remember-Is it to help the animals or cause more harm to them-- i already cause so much harm to dos i dont have i keep asking for money and leave the dogs to die--

diana i really think you have no brains, we are the ones getting dogs out of the pounds and finding homes for, remember pop the dobie? we got him out of the pound because you were not going to because you cant pull dogs from any pounds you would of left him there to die because all you wanted was the money that you ask for to pull dogs from the people on your page that have no clue what your really about because you have us all blocked, diana you need to be honest with people let them know you arent allowed to pull any dogs in the state of florida, also what about angel the dog that was at bac that you said you were getting but in fact you begged other people on your facebook page for money to get her out than other people went there to get her out and the admin there at the shelter made the person sign a paper that they will not give the dog to you!!! now thats really sad when someone has to sign some paper stating NOT TO GIVE THE DOG TO YOU!!
