Attorney General Shuts Down Tipp City Horse Rescue Charity

CAMBRIDGE -- Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today announced a settlement with a Tipp City horse rescue, Serenity Horse Rescue, which has agreed to dissolve.

DeWine also announced a lawsuit against a Cambridge-based horse rescue charity, Frog Pond Farm Inc., and its owner for misappropriating funds and failing to register with the state.

According to DeWine's office, Shula Woodworth, who operated the Tipp City rescue, agreed to dissolve her organization and redistribute its assets after DeWine says he found that the organization was not managed properly.

According to the agreement, all the organizations assets, including a $6,430 payment, will be redistributed to other horse rescue organizations.

Running a horse rescue facility requires a lot of work, and those who operate charitable organizations must be able to fulfill their legal responsibilities, DeWine said. We simply cannot allow those who run charities to use the charitys bank account as their own personal bank account or to fail in their duties to properly run the organization.

The Attorney Generals Charitable Law Section discovered that Frog Pond Farms owner, Lisa Gordon, of Cambridge, used the organizations bank account as if it were her own and misappropriated nearly $50,000 between 2011 and 2013. She also failed to register with the Ohio Attorney Generals Office from 2004 to 2012.

According to the lawsuit, Frog Pond Farm was incorporated in March 2004. As a horse rescue, it buys or otherwise rescues horses from slaughter situations, takes care of them, and facilitates adoption. The organization solicited money from the public by saying that donations would be used to rescue horses.

To check whether a charitable organization is in compliance with its registration obligations or whether a professional solicitor is properly registered, call the Ohio Attorney General's Office at 800-282-0515 or visit www.OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov. Those who encounter suspicious activities involving charities or charitable solicitations should contact the Ohio Attorney General's Office to file a complaint.
