Things That Make Me Go Grrrrr.....Texie Torok from Storm's Animal Allies Accusing Me Of Killing A Dog

RIP Enzo....

Over the past weeks I have written two articles on Enzo and his foster situation. Here is the first and here is the second. Much has been focused on Texie Torok, a woman who runs "Storm's Animal Allies". Texie has found herself in hot water before with regard to the way she conducts her "rescue". For your convenience all posts from the past are now labelled under the Texie Torok section on this blog. They mostly detail her fraudulent raising of funds and her assisting a woman with an outstanding warrant for animal abuse and torture in the United States. I'll leave it up to the readers to peruse the articles and make up their own minds as it stands with Texie Torok, as I will also leave it up to you to make up your minds as pertains to Enzo :

Enzo had been in foster care with Alexandra Stuart for two months, starting after Alexandra saw a desperate plea for a foster on Facebook. The plea came from Texie Torok, who had NEVER MET Enzo. She had no idea as to the dog's health or disposition, yet she had no problem handing him over to Alexandra. There were promises from Texie that food would be provided and Enzo would see a veterinarian. Neither of these things happened in TWO MONTHS. I ask any of you, is this how a rescue operates?

Fast forward to two weeks ago. Alexandra had put over 40 pounds on Enzo's frail frame, and he was well socialized with her dogs. Yet he had still not seen a veterinarian. What initiative did Texie Torok take to remedy the situation? NONE.  I took it upon myself to get Enzo to the veterinarian as clearly Texie Torok either had no funds or didn't care, while Helping Homeless Pets stepped up to have Enzo assessed (there was concern about whether he could be adopted) Enzo had his first vet appointment that showed the need for more tests. With this in mind I began soliciting donations to be made directly to the vet (past experience has shown Texie can not be trusted when it comes to soliciting donations). A few donations came in, and I always made it clear that I would personally offset any remaining balance on Enzo's account at the vet. All seemed ok until.....

This past weekend when Enzo attacked and injured a smaller dog. Texie was informed of this and immediately out of concern that Enzo was in a volatile foster home went there right away to remove him. Actually scratch that. SHE DID NOTHING. In fact Texie has maintained for quite some time that she is Enzo's legal owner and Alexandra is a money grubbing crackhead. Surely THIS concerned Texie so much that she got Enzo out of the situation he was in? Nope, TEXIE DID NOTHING. Is this rescue?

After the attack there was serious talk as to what should happen with Enzo. Three possible solutions were discussed :

Alexandra finds Enzo a home
Texie finds Enzo a home
Euthanasia be discussed

It was discussed that for Enzo to be placed in a new home potential adopters HAD TO BE made aware of his need for $1000 in veterinary care as well as his bite history (this past weekend was not his first "attack"). While all of this discussion was occurring Texie was asked for the umpteenth time to COME GET ENZO. Texie Torok will state again and again that Alexandra ignored her request to come get Enzo. I will state again and again that Texie Torok is all talk. What would YOU do if you thought your dog was being fostered by a lunatic for two months, and that there was a chance he might have to be put down due to aggression? I bet you would drive, walk, cab, bike, or use any other disposable means of transportation to get your dog right? Texie Torok sat on her ass. Is this rescue?

Yesterday Alexandra made the decision to take Enzo to the vet to be euthanized. She was concerned he would attack again and it would be HER who would have to face the consequences, not Texie Torok....you know....the woman who had NEVER EVEN MET Enzo or come to reclaim him. In fact I talked to Alexandra and suggested she try to give Texie one more chance to reclaim Enzo. I later received a message from Alexandra that she had made up her mind and could not wait another two months. When I received this message I called Alexandra back but did not hear from her until she called to inform me that Enzo had been euthanized.

I too wish this had gone another way. I also wish Texie Torok hadn't taken to her Facebook page claiming that I am responsible for Enzo's death. Let's recap what we all did in this situation :

- Alexandra fostered Enzo for two months. Alexandra nursed him back to health. Eventually Alexandra had Enzo euthanized.
- Helping Homeless pets had Enzo assessed to determine if he could be adopted
- I lined up veterinary care and began getting donations.
- TEXIE TOROK DID NOTHING besides pawn a dog off and refuse to get him the medical care he so desperately needed. And now? Texie Torok is deflecting the blame to anyone else who will listen.

So all parties who actually ACTED on Enzo's behalf are now being admonished by the ONE individual who did NOTHING. Is this rescue?

Feel free to comment and ask any questions you may have. By my account this is far from over, and will not be the last time I write about Texie Torok. After all, she did accuse me of killing a dog.

UPDATE November 21

For everyone so eager to believe Texie Torok, let's take a look at the fact that for two months she has steadfastly maintained that Enzo was HER dog. She has stated this in an email to myself, to Toronto Animal Services, to the police, to anyone on Facebook that would listen. Why then yesterday, did she post this on Facebook :

"Storm's Animal Allies Lisa you are right....this is true...I am waiting for a call form (sic) the owner of this dog..."

Wait a minute?  Is Texie calling herself? Her whole stance has been that no one had any right to deal with Enzo as he was HERS. Another lie told by Texie Torok. I encourage all those Texie cronies who have been accusing me of lying or fabricating my articles to really use your noodles and think hard to see how you can spin this one. BTW Texie removed the post within five minutes....and yes I have the emails and the screenshots, along with another post she removed quickly yesterday. In that post, someone publicly asked Texie what exactly SHE had done for Enzo. Easier to delete than answer.

Meanwhile to pathetically attempt to continually deflect from her liability, Texie continues to tell everyone there is an "investigation" ongoing. I wonder Texie, did you offer the investigators the opportunity to read those posts? Because I have them if they are needed....

Here is an early exchange. Alexandra (Enzo's foster) informs Texie Torok of the cost of Enzo's food and informs Texie to find another foster with "deeper pockets" NOTE Alexandra ASKS FOR NO MONEY.....JUST FOOD.

A week later after being bashed and ignored by Texie, Alexandra clearly asks that the dog be removed or that Texie provide FOOD. Again, NOT MONEY. Texie attempts to have the post removed. To those who have been conned by Texie Torok, it is clearly a shame.

  1. If the dog is not legally yours and still belonged to the rescue the veterinarian in Ontario should have gotten written permission from the rescue for you to have the dog seen at your vet period. Therefore the dog had no business being put down by a foster care provider and not the actual owner, i.e. the rescue. If the vet felt the rescue was not providing the proper care they in turn would report to OSPCA. None of this happened I presume.

  2. You are correct that as far as I know the vet did not contact the OSPCA. That is something that will have to be taken up by the owner and the rescue. With regard to Enzo's "owner" that in itself poses a problem in that it remains unknown. To this day Texie Torok maintains she was Enzo's owner, while an original rescue from the US is claiming the same. So far no one has produced documentation, though the rescue in the US did contact the veterinarian to authorize the euthanasia. Yesterday Texie forwarded her "proof" that she was Enzo's owner. It was simply a veterinary record stating he had received shots. Again the whole story points to the larger problem of what happens when proper protocols aren't followed when it comes to animal rescue.

  3. You are disgusting for writing such a thing. Alexandra was not in the position to dictate what happens to Enzo's life. If, in fact she felt threatened by the animal, she should have turned him into a shelter as a stray!
    I think your personal problem with the rescue has clouded your judgement, and pulled the wool in front of your eyes.
    Might I also add, that Alexandra called the animal shelter in Toronto, and was advised by a bi-law officer that she had NO legal right to euthanize Enzo and that It was against the law.
    She was not happy with this answer, and lied to a vet office, and said she was his owner. Unfortunately a complaint will be filed against vets office, and Alexandra will be charged for giving false information and fraud.
    Many people including my self had offered to take Enzo off her hands. It was requested that she submit the receipts so that she could be reimbursed. Might I also add, that Alexandra Stuart was claiming it was $400-$500 a month to feed Enzo. He was not a HORSE. It does not cost that much to feed a dog.
    Alexandra saw this as nothing but a cash grab, and decided to kill Enzo OUT OF SPITE to punish the people who cared about him.
    You can mark my words that Alexandra Stuart WILL be charged by the police. The animal shelter will also be witnesses , telling the police that she was advised that it was not her legal right to euthanize this animal.

    I would suggest you reevaluate your harsh accusations and revisit this whole story before slandering someone's name on the Internet.
    Your sweet friend Alexandra is an animal killer and should never be allowed to own an animal again.
    If she didn't have the patience or resources to deal with Enzo, and she felt she wasn't getting the right help that she needed, than she could have spent the time to find someone else to take him her self.
    The amount of effort she used to find someone to euthanize Enzo, could have been used to HELP him.
    Isn't that what we are supposed to be there for?
    Shame on you Alexandra Stuart. You will pay for what you did to Enzo, one way or the other.

  4. I was involved personally the night Alexandra the Devils Spawn had ENZO put down... I had a Foster who was willing too adopt ENZO as well transportation had been confirmed. I even tried too contact Alexandra... but seems like her phone was taken off the hook..."she was not accepting calls"...LOL What a joke!!! I was in contact with Texie Torok and everything was set too go...Enzo would be transported too Brusseau, Ontario... But, it seems that Alexandra couldn't bury the hatchet she has for Texie Torok and took it upon herself to decide ENZO's fate... I HOPE PERSONALLY SHE ROTS IN HELL...AND ENZO HAUNTS CONTINUALLY... But then again, someone with no brain has no conscience....

  5. I was in contact with Alexandra as well and she was in an impossible situation. I hope it's ok to say this here, if not you can delete, but Alexandra told me Enzo failed his assessment and Alexandra was told Enzo was not adoptable. Alexandra didn't feel she could, in good conscience, turn him over to yet another foster home and she was putting herself at considerable risk by keeping him because she knew it was only a matter of time before there was an incident for which she could be liable for any damages, including a law suit. The last I heard from Alexandra was Texie had informed her she'd be picking Enzo up over the weekend, apparently that didn't happen. RIP Enzo, I hope your next life is a kinder one.

  6. I was NEVER advised that there was a foster! I do not have call waiting, and most certainly answer the phone if I am home. Huum I have an unlisted number.. were you given my personal information by a 3rd party? I have emails stating the home she found backed out. At 7.02 pm Texie was still posting she needed a home..on your page Keri. I have no ill will for Texie. I have 3 university degrees hanging on my wall. You need to check your facts. Texie was not the legal owner of Enzo either, so actually she had no right to post him on kijiji, the ad is till there, or rehome him without contacting the legal owner. All that being said, I tried and tried and tried to get Texie to get Enzo, and she failed to do so.

  7. I don't know you, but you did the right thing. It would have been irresponsible to adopt out that dog or to even place him in another foster home. Euthanasia of aggressive dogs protects both the dog and others from suffering in the future. Billions of nonaggressive dogs are being euthanized in shelters. No one needs to be in an uproar over this one unadoptable dog.

  9. Alexandra, do you still have Max? I heard he was placed in foster care with you. I will come get him if you do still have him. I was told he bit you, but he never bit when he was here so it's obviously not the right environment for him. I'm in California now, but I'll fly up there again to get him if no one comes to you in the next 24 hours. Please keep me posted.

  10. 400-500 a month? Perhaps to pay for all of the dogs that she hoards. Alexandra is up to her usual crazy antics.. googled her name and this came up. This woman needs to be banned from owning animals, period.
