High Concern Advisory for:
Oliver's Rescue Mission

On October 24, 2018, KGET reported on the operations of Oliver's Rescue Mission, an alleged charity, in an article titled, "Local acupuncturist accused of creating fake nonprofit." It has come to our attention that this organization is not registered with the IRS, but is soliciting from the general public in violation of federal tax law. For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see the KGET article.

  • On October 30, 2018, KGET published an article titled, "New details in case against local acupuncturist accused of using animal rescue as front for fraud." For more information, please see the KGET article.

  • On October 31, 2018, The Bakersfield Californian published an article titled, "Bakersfield woman established 'sham' nonprofit for purposes of tax evasion, report says." For more information, please see The Bakersfield Californian article.

  • On February 20, 2019, KGET published an article titled, "Woman accused of setting up fraudulent dog rescue, accepts plea deal." For more information, please see the KGET article.

The concerns raised about organizational legitimacy and/or federal tax law compliance are serious both in nature and scope and have thus warranted this CN Advisory. We have published this advisory to provide donors with content that they may find useful when making their giving decisions. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the authors of sources used for the reported information, and not those of Charity Navigator. Charity Navigator is not responsible for the nature or content of the information presented through such external sources and websites.
