Crystal provides an invaluable service to the rescue community and has for a long time. Many of us have dealt with her on a personal as well as professional level for years and can vouch for her credibility, love for pigs, kindness and generosity. She goes well beyond the norm when it comes to assisting others and educating and most of us would love to have her energy! One lone detractor in Florida and her misled minions are trying to undo the good that VPP has spent years doing. It is apparent from some of the reviews (see Roseecakes..."clothes" surely means close??) that this detractor is asking either children to write reviews or semi-literate adults who have no knowledge of the pig rescue/sanctuary community. This detractor was invited to join a pig rescue list after posing as a rescuer. Advice was offered BEFORE her pigs became pregnant as to ways to separate the males and females to avoid pregnancies. MONEY was given to her and accepted by her for the purpose of neutering her males, which she never did and had no intention of doing. Separate from the rescue list she joined, she bragged on FB about breeding. She can do that but why did she lie about her plans to the rescue community? From her first posts on the list, it was apparent she was looking for a fight and has very real emotional issues. She has repeatedly lied about HER non-profit status and being registered as a LLC. People should give no credibility to her negative reviews about VPP as she is a lone detractor with an ax to grind. Crystal called her out on her lies and she became angry and is now bent on destroying the wonderful organization Crystal has worked hard to establish. This woman claims to be a Christian but I know many non-Christians who behave in a more Christian-like manner. It is truly bad KARMA to engage in the activities she has and it is hoped that well educated and well intentioned people will look beyond the negative reviews that have been posted and continue to help Crystal and VPP do the wonderful work they do for many more years. We in the rescue/sanctuary community support Crystal and her efforts!
