At all times, the Grace Foundation of Northern CA has refused to provide an inventory and accounting of the horses they took, allegedly after being paid $40,000 or $80,000 or whatever amount, in Lassen County [via illegal seizure in Susanville ] and has also refused to allow placement with a private SPCA–at no cost to Grace.
On Thursday November 1, 2012, apparently the Grace Foundation and the banks/or others will be “mediating” informally in Lassen County at undisclosed location, to work on the alleged “resolution” of owner’s horses. There has never been a single deprivation hearing (due process) on any of the horse owner’s property including the animals, real property, or otherwise, and no hearings on OSC (order to show cause) returns, in over twenty ex parte “hearings.” If any “ownership” issues are determined it is likely that such determination will work against both the banks, Grace, the “receiver” and any parties involved, since the facts indicate the animals were illegally seized, but no parties will admit to this fact. [Grace only alleges she got them illegally because she aimed to own them, and then didn't end up owning them, but blamed the "bankruptcy", which is NOT what caused Grace to "not" own the animals.]
Despite a bankruptcy stay, an appeal in civil court on the Lassen State case of purported “foreclosure” of horse owner’s land, which normally stays the entire case, the banks apparently moved the Grace case filed in El Dorado, to Los Angeles Superior Court. So in meantime, Grace runs to Lassen County, to allegedly try and settle her alleged “Los Angeles” case? Or is she settling her issues from the horse owner case [Lassen No. 45679] for which she is NOT a named party?
This is obviously important since it is apparent from Grace’s own stories, her own documents, and her lawsuit, that she cannot effectively account for every exact animal that she removed from the horse owner’s property in August 2011. Even assuming that several horses may have improperly been allowed to go to alleged “owner” (other than Mr. Bennett) or that several horses died under “Grace’s watch”, or that several foals died under Grace’s watch, it is still believed that Grace cannot account for an estimated 5-12 horses, and such animals were not actually believed to be under Grace’s care, despite news reports. Grace’s numbers of how many horses went to the Grace property constantly changes. We have seen numbers such as 56, 32, 28, 54, 45, 46, etc. Further, it has been determined that other horses in pictures were named as owner’s horses which in fact, were not owner’s horses, but looked similar.
Further, recently individuals have been coming forward to testify that Grace did not have all of the owner’s horses at her ranch, even though Grace was to have legally and physically taken them, but in reality, via an illegal seizure set up by bank attorney, and Grace paid by banks to take them. As a non profit, Grace is regulated under regulations that are used for non profit groups, which is different than for profit businesses. Mostly because non profits take money directly from the public, it is often difficult if not impossible to know how the funds are spent.
Also, we are sure that non profits which engage in quasi criminal actions or even criminal actions are not going to be allowed to run non profit groups. Why do you think HSUS and ASPCA et al don’t want to be convicted of RICO charges? They don’t want to lose their NON TAX status.
