I've seen the evidence. This was a place of neglect and suffering. Visit http://www.caboodleranch.net to view evidence of fraud and abuse. I am appalled that anyone would defend this organization.

I have done my research. There are thousands of wonderful comments about Caboodle Ranch from those who have visited. There are numerous videos of the happy & well cared for cats at Caboodle Ranch. They have all the documents showing all of the vet cat care & medicine. The Caboodle Ranch vet, Dr. Lewis came to the ranch often.

The Caboodle Ranch raid by PETA & ASPCA in Feb. 2012 was hideous! Lies were fabricated & facts distorted.
PETA & ASPCA go for sensationalism to generate donations. There is also political connections one of which these organizations are against any Animal Rescue Act that would allow a rescue to take animals as opposed to euthanizing them. (Does not sound like it makes sense until one researches PETA in which ASPCA follow suit.)

Caboodle Ranch was a wonderful & beautiful place. They still need donations to continue the legal fiasco. Hopefully, Caboodle Ranch will thrive again!

Caboodle Ranch collected nearly a quarter million dollars in donations in 2010, yet denied cats basic veterinary care. While cats suffered and died in agony, the owner took trips to Las Vegas, bought tickets to Disney on Ice and Daytona Speedway, and wasted thousands of dollars on local motel rooms. At the time of the raid and closure of the Ranch in 2012, at least 29 dead and decomposing cats were found scattered around the buildings of Caboodle Ranch, including two decomposed corpses in a vanity at the back of the "general store". According to the medical records entered into evidence in the custody hearing, more than 95% of the cats were suffering from illness, injury and disease.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Hundreds of cats had to be nursed back to health thanks to the abuse and neglect of Caboodle Ranch. Despite their poor condition, many were able to be saved, and are scheduled for adoption in August 2012.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Shut it down, jail the owner and his accomplices, and ensure that no cat suffers the abuse that was inflicted on the Caboodle Ranch cats.

Do not donate to this organization. The place is run by a man who a Judge ruled is lacking in the skill and knowledge to run a ranch. Do not be fooled.

PLEASE CHECK OUT THE HORRIFIC STORIES OF ANIMAL ABUSE, SUFFERING AND NEGLECT. THE OWNER OF CABOODLE RANCH HAS BEEN ARRESTED AND CHARGED AND IS AWAITING TRIAL.In the meantime, he still has his charity website, a FaceBook page, and he is still collecting donations from unsuspecting animal lovers who want to help animals.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

close down Caboodle Ranch along with their websites still accepting donations from the public and shut down their FB page.
