Needful Souls…, Isn’t that a catchy title for a bottom feeder to have come up with?

Nedful Souls owner is a liar, a frauster, a thief and a dog broker!  He is NOT repeat NOT a real rescue! Do not be fooled.

Brett Cochran is the man behind the rescue scam. Here are some of his aliases; Bret Cochran, Art Cochran, and Robin Cochran, Make no mistake this man could be buying pit bulls for dog fighting, but he will try to get his hands on any dog. His main goal is to get these dogs and sell them to the highest bidder. mainly to research facilities much like Dawn Bechtold! This man’s criminal past consists of fraud and theft. ( big shocker there!) These types often have a criminal past.

 I have to agree with Homney Valley GS Rescue on this point : If you work for, or run, a shelter or rescue program, please DO YOUR HOMEWORK!  Check references, do a criminal background check, do a home inspection. Do all you can to be sure you are releasing these dogs into the right hands. Remember anyone can sound good on paper.

I have always believed you can tell a lot about a person by their body language, little clues people unconsciously give about who or what they really are, but that’s a learned skill, and if in your gut you think there is something wrong, well there probably is!

I have major fears with people like this, Rescue’s are supposed to be the place that is a stop-gap, a transition house if you will, from one situation, into a new and bright beginning, it’s not supposed to be a pit stop on the way to hell!

 Now I know there are some fabulous rescues and shelters out there, that strive to be the best mid-point stop for these animals, but yet again, I find myself thinking it is far to easy for these types of people to set up shop, and prey on the weaknesses of others. There needs to be stronger guidelines put into place and better licencing procedures. I mean apparently any creepy little bottom feeder with thirty cents and a catchy name can become a rescue, NOT COOL! This creep has got to be stopped! Your days are numbered buddy!

I guess that the reason this goes on is no one wants to be the one to stand up and evoke change, and I am not asking any of you to do that, but it would be really nice if everyone could stand behind the people who do. Give support when you can, like a letter, or a donation, (Do your homework first on that one), or simply show up at a rally and give the back up to those of us that stick their necks out on a daily basis.

I’m not trying to shame anyone into action here, but it is so frustrating seeing this nonsense go on and on and on. When all it takes is very little action on the part of those of you who feel disgust when you read these stories, so don’t stop at simply reading it and moving on, join us! join in!  and save some lives!

For those of you that do take action, and stick your necks out, rock the boats, and challenge the laws or lack there of …, again I say Thank you!  Thank you for becoming part of the team, and part of the solution! So please share this and put an end to this nonsense and creeps like this guy. Let’s let him and all those like him know that we are coming, and we’re brining friends!


About apitome

I am a mother, a pit bull advocate, but mostly I am just like any of you, I am passionate about politics, the environment and dog advocacy. I want possitive changes within the judicial system as well. I want my children to grow up in a country where we are not told what breed of dog we can own. I want to see BSL put in the trash where it belongs! I want to see the constitution protected but not manipulated *see anything on the mosque near ground zero (USA) or changing Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays (Canada)* I am not racist in any way shape or form against any ethnic group, I do however have prejudices against bad behavior! If you abuse our laws, kids, the elderly, or animals, If you move to a new country and then demand that country to change everything about it's laws & way of life to suit your own agenda, If you blatantly break those laws with no regard and show no repect for them, if you engage in dog fighting or any other forms of animal abuse, torture or neglect, or if you are a pedophile, Than yes! You are on my radar for sure, and I will do EVERYTHING within my power to see you stopped and brought to justice! Furthering that goal, I have no qualms about publishing the names and faces of convicted abusers. I am not trying to change the world, I simply want to see things improve not backslide, Mostly for my children and these wonderful dogs futures! I may say things you agree with, and I may say things that you won't agree with, I may anger you, challenge you, or just plain piss you off, but in my book that's ok as long as long as it inspires some form of action on your part. This is not a popularity contest, If I have said anything about a group or person that you don't agree with please feel free to leave a comment or simply don't come back. If You have been mentioned in my blog it is for one of two reasons, you are either an advocate or you are an abuser loser, if you are the latter I could care less what you think! I value the opinions of trash about as much as I do that of a slug! Everything in print here is a matter of public record, or came from a trusted source, with that said, I am certainly willing to print both sides of any story, in an effort to be fair and always print the truth!

    I”ve been looking for Brett Cochran for over 20 years, he robbed my house and stole some unreplaceable items from a 5 year-old and he was fully aware of that at the time. I didn’t know him well and didn’t trust him but he was a friend of a friend down on his luck so I agreed to help him briefly and that’s all he needed, he showed what he was made of. I saw his picture on another website that linked him to this “needful Souls organization and realized he hasn’t changed a bit. I’ve been looking for him since 1990’s and was hoping to stumble across his obituary but this is more like what I expected.
