From ANIMAL PEOPLE, March 2006:
The California Office of the Attorney General on February 14
ordered Wildlife Waystation founder Martine Colette to reimburse the
Waystation $64,128 for the care of her personal horses.
“Colette can deduct that amount from $140,000 the Waystation
owes her from personal loans she made when the sanctuary was in
financial trouble,” wrote Los Angeles Daily News staff writer Kerry
“Also,” Cavanaugh said, “the Attorney General’s Office
ordered the Waystation to correct information on its web site that
said the refuge employs two part-time veterinarians, when in fact
the Waystation has two vet techs.”
The orders concluded a three-year audit of the Waystation by
the Charitable Trust Division of the California Department of Justice.
