Marc Ching Animal Hope & Wellness Kidnapping Conviction

Marc Ching Animal Hope & Wellness

Marc Ching Animal Hope & Wellness will never be anything other than a con artist seeking donations by preying upon animal lovers.

In 2017, Wildlife Planet broke the story of Marc Ching, the founder of the Dog Rescue organization ‘Animal Hope & Wellness foundation’ (AHWF) hiding the fact that he was convicted of kidnapping in 2000.

After serving 11-years in a California State penile faculty, Marc Ching was paroled and less than three years later. Marc Ching started using images of innocent dogs being butchered by the Southeast Asia Dog-Meat industry, to rake in millions of dollars in donations. 

After Wildlife Planet exposed Marc Ching’s criminal history, his cult-like followers immediately started sending death-threats and looking for any family member that they could attack on-line in an effort to force me to recant my story.

When Marc Ching’s cult wasn’t sending me death threats. They defended their hero by claiming that, even if true, somehow Marc Ching wasn’t really a part of the kidnapping.

They would exclaim, Marc Ching’s soul is too pure, his heart was to caring to have even thought of something so evil, let alone participate.

I always responded that ‘Base on my research, Marc Ching has always been a grade A douche-bag, and no matter how hard he pretends to be a good guy, sooner or later “Marc Ching Is Gonna Marc Ching!”

And in 2020 Marc Ching came through like the true D-Bag he is…

As we reported earlier, Marc Ching recently had the dubious honor of becoming the very first person in the United States to be charged by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for promoting a supplement as a treatment for Coronavirus (COVID-19), as well as a cure for Cancer.

As we said…

Marc Ching’s Gonna Marc Ching

Many would agree that trying to profit off the fears of the coronavirus pandemic, that has cost the lives of hundreds of thousand  of people. As well as infected millions of others worldwide would be as low as one person could go.

But Marc Ching has shown that he has a long…long…long climb up, just to be have the privilege of being called ‘gutter trash.’

Ching’s Coronavirus treatment scam is just Marc Ching’s latest con in a long line of abhorrent money-making schemes.

I’m not sure what scheme Marc Ching was running between his 2011 release from prison to the spring of 2014, but I do know what he’s done since.

In May 2014, Marc Ching saw a Chinese woman named Yang Xiaoyun become famous for a picture of her protecting a poor innocent dog from some dog-meat industry thugs, during the infamous 2014 Yulin Dog-Meat Festival.

Yang Xiaoyun

Ironically, the very same woman that inspired Marc Ching’s to create his Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation con, also turned out to be a con artist herself.

The picture that made her famous was all staged. But after CNN and other media outlets declared her a hero, she was able to rake in millions of dollars in donations over a two-year span.

Her scam came to an abrupt end as she was exposed by animal activist Julia de Cadenet, who founded the Dog-rescue organization NoToDogMeat

As we stated earlier, despite posting the same evidence we show below, the moment we exposed Marc Ching’s Kidnapping conviction I was inundated with death threats.

Julia de Cadenet is proof that anyone in the animal advocacy circles who speaks out against another animal advocate. No matter if they presented an overwhelming amount of evidence of the person’s guilt. They will still be tarred and feathered to damaging the cause as a whole.

And right on cue the moment Julia de Cadenet exposed Yang, her NoToDogMeat organization was slammed with fraudulent accusations that she was running a fraudulent, illegal organization profiting off of these poor innocent dogs.

Later Marc Ching’s cult brought their own tar and feathers to the NoToDogMeat party, after they decided Julia de Cadenet was the source of a Daily Mail Article that exposed another one of Ching’s simpleminded self-promotion stunts that went so horribly wrong it cost the lives of over 600 dogs.

But seeing Yang on TV, created a spark inside Marc Ching’s pea-sized brain, which ultimately led to him starting his “Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation.”

Unfortunately, despite asking animal lovers for their money, Marc Ching didn’t believe the public had any right to know that he was a convicted kidnapper who spent 11-years in prison. And also Ching was engaged to a rather burly man, with an overabundance of back hair named Butch.

Since 2014, Marc Ching made his donation cash register sing like Pavarotti by supposedly risking his life pulling back the curtain on the dog-meat butchers who were torturing, and brutally murdering innocent dogs.

Of course, while Marc Ching was pretending to be 007, risking life and limb to film the grotesque scenes, which he would later upload his doggy snuff films to YouTube.

The part Marc Ching left out was HE PAID these butchers, to torture these dogs so he could film these poor animals screaming in sheer agony as it gets slowly disemboweled.

It is simply amazing to think that Marc Ching, the man who weeps like a lost child every time he talks to a reporter about the Yulin China dogs and cats getting butchered.

Amazingly, Marc Ching doesn’t shed a single tear while filming a dog screaming in agony as it gets skinned alive?”

Marc Ching Animal Hope & Wellness Felony Kidnapper

How would you feel if you donated your time and money to help get a politician elected only to find out only after they won that the went to prison for domestic abuse?

How would you feel if you brought your child to a Doctor and only to find out later he was convicted of malpractice that resulted in a child’s death?

Probably the same if you donated to his Dog rescue organization “Animal Hope and Wellness” and then found out that Marc Ching was convicted of kidnapping the daughter of a rival drug dealer because he stole Marc Ching’s drug stash.

But somehow Marc Ching didn’t think it was important enough to explain to his donors that he was arrested in 2000, found guilty and sentenced to an 11-year in prison sentence for Kidnapping?
