On August 8, 2017, The Faribault Daily News reported on the operations of S A F E Sanctuary, a former charity that has recently dissolved, in an article titled, "Dog rescue to dissolve after investigation finds misuse of funds, other improprieties." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see The Faribault Daily News article.

  • On August 29, 2017, The Faribault Daily News published an article titled, "Dog rescue founder charged with theft, falsifying tax returns." For more information, please see The Faribault Daily News 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.
