CJ Acres has a Go Fund Me Account, where they are LYING about receiving a PIG from PETA.
We have made contact with PETA who have begun an investigation.
The "PIG" that CJ ACRES keeps claiming is being sent to Keystone Hieghts, was NEVER even considered being sent to this horrible farm.

The pig went to Virginia- Why is CJAARF claiming that PETA is sending it here?
They are not legitimate.
Farm Sanctuary does not lie.
No legitimate Rescue lies.
There is no insurance on the 501 (c).
Who lies and runs a scam via GO FUND ME on their Facebook Page?

The man who runs it COLLECTED funds ILLEGALLY in PETA' s name.
WILLFULLY knowing that he would not be receiving ANY abused PIG from PETA.
Call PETA and confirm this or go to Twitter & check out CJAARF and the PETA PIG.
PETA's letters are uploaded
This RESCUE lied. They KILL.
Star the Blind Mare DIED here.
Kevin the Rooster lasted three month.
Star is Starving. Star is a Mustang who arrived healthy & fat almost.
Ask them about Nikki.
We have e mails and phone calls from PETA.
This farm lies and steals from the public.
Riverside Arts Mart, a farmers market in Jacksonville, recieved many protests, when CJAARF claimed that RAM requested they man a booth.
We discovered the truth - CJAARF paid the 25.00 REDUCED fee and was
given a slot just as anyone else that PAID the fee.
The manager agreed that she did not agree they should even be allowed at RAM but they let them.
They are aware of Star the Mustang being starved.
This MAN who runs the "Rescue" lies and lies.
This rescue was SUED in court over the animals he illegally obtained.
So this rescue AUCTIONED them off for CASH.
Moses the Ram ws the subject of a lawsuit, so was Opie the donkey and quite a few other animals.
This rescue SUBMITTED court documents signed by the owner, his name typed & his signature clearly legible STATING that every animal subject to this lawsuit was AUCTIONED off two weeks before the court hearing.
This "Rescue" took in animals in February.
They gelded a 12 year old donkey and almost killed it when it bled out.
That incident caused animal humane agencies to be contacted.
Star the Mustang was photographed in June with her bones exposed and ribs jutting out.
She is my profile photo on Facebook - her photograph went viral
As for the animals in the court case?
They lied about how the animals came to arrive at this location.
They lied about the previous owners and slandered them - calling them homeless and hoarders.
Not the truth.
They were taken to court and the LEAD MARE signed documents under the PENALTY of PERJURY that he and the 2nd "Rescue" auctioned the animals off to the highest bidder.
If you scroll down, you will see that the very RAM he told the Judge he "AUCTIONED" was the subject, of a HORRIFIC shearing party.
No proper animal RESCUE holds a SHEARING party.
They subjected Moses to hours of terrified abuse.
Why didn't they use a professional sheep shearer?
The job would have been done in less than 10 minutes.
It is obvious these people took pleasure in the harming and fear of the poor ram.
The women pose gleefully with scissors and the WRONG type of shearing tools.
Moses has been carrying dirty wool for months.
In March a volunteer, who was undercover photographed is feces & urine stained rear.
She photographed the matted coat and dead insects.
There are animals at this "Rescue" that should be removed.
If you read the comments of people who are "NEW" - it is easy to see they have no idea what they are doing.
No one but a PROFESSIONAL should Shear a "rescued" ram.
And if a Ram has been "AUCTIONED" Off and the court documents speak to that.
Then there is something wrong here.
This "Rescue" lies to Judges.
This "Rescue" lied about PETA and the Pig.
Are they going to REFUND the money to those who donate?
Are they going to write a check to PETA?
Are they going to keep lying and claiming animals are arriving and are not?
When are they going to give us the VET bills and financials that we keep requesting?
What have they to hide?
They MOVED thier last fund raiser OFF SITE.
I believe they are aware that many are revealing the horror of this place.
That doesn't change things.
We SAW on social media THE HORROR Moses went through when he was CRUELLY sheared.
TIED up like a dog.
Sheared on a DIRTY Floor.
With SCISSORS.
There are no real workers at this "rescue".
Just people that come and go.
Social Media is giving us the many photos we need.
As are the undercover volunteers who have decided to give photographs to authorities
Surrounded by people who looked drunk, at least 13 surrounded him - holding his legs as if they were going to put him on a grill and cook him

Shut CJAARF down.
Go to Twitter and look at the many posts about the PETA PIG and thier lies.
Go to Social Media And see what PETA has said about that PIG.
Do NOT donate to this place.
It MUST be shut down.
This place revels in cruelly harming animals.
Gelding Stevo without anesthesia.
Almost killing Moses by anesthestizing him and causing an almost DEADLY allergic reaction in March.
LYING AND PERJURY to the Clay County Municipal Court.
CJAARF must be shut down.
The animals are suffering and the people who go there revel in harming them
Reading that this woman "ENJOYED" the shearing is heartbreaking.
THIS is NOT a RESCUE.
The Florida State Authorities who govern 501 (c)'s and those who govern Matching Funds have been given all of this documentation.
PETA is also on their trail.
This could ONLY happen in FLORIDA.

Ways to make it better...

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

Close it down and arrest the owner for animal cruelty and bring him up on the perjury charges.

I have watched this "Rescue" and I have many concerns.
They posted on July 7, that they are taking in PIGS that are coming from PETA.
This week, they have been exposed as having lied about this.
They posted on their own FACEBOOK Page that people should donate to CJ ACRES for PETA and
these pigs.
The pigs are NOT coming to this Rescue.
PETA has publicly tweeted this fact.
Why would anyone donate to PETA via an intermediary?
Why would any reputable Rescue lie about this?
It is obvious that now PETA is onto this scam and their legal department is involved.
On Social Media, via Facebook it is OBVIOUS this 501 is lying to the public to get their money.
I cannot imagine how the people of Jacksonville and North Florida are so fooled by this place.
I have seen in my Animal Circles on Google + and my Horse groups that there is a Mustang here named STAR, and that she may be being starved as well.
The photo that has gone viral does not look good for this 501 (c).
First a Mustang being starved and then the FAKE claim about getting Pigs from PETA.
This is shameful.
They even have posted that they want $35.00. for these pigs.
PIGS THAT ARE NOT ARRIVING HERE.
PETA has emphatically stated this publicly.
There is duplicity going on at this Rescue.
Again, if you donate for PETA, in 2014, you can easily donate DIRECTLY to PETA.
I understand from PETA's Tweets on Twitter, their CID is now involved.

This "Rescue " has shown, that they are not really compassionate.
They do not care about animals.
I have watched them and spoken to people who have worked as "volunteers".

I noticed that when the "REVIEWS" began to feature photographs of animals that are here
especially the Horses and especially questions, again, about another PIG incident.
The "REVIEW" feature was hidden.
A purchase made by this Rescue, with the Receipt provided by a prior member of the board of directors, that the FACEBOOK page suddenly HID the "REVIEW" Feature and then completely
got rid of it.
They also changed the ability to post photos on their page.
What is going on here?
What has this Rescue to hide.
Save your money.
Give to those that are reputable and that do excellent work.
This 501 (c) has only been around since 2009 and by 2014 they are lying and using PETA's name?
This is not right.

Ways to make it better...

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

I would ask that they post their financial information on GUIDESTAR as all other non profits do.
