A lot of people think stalking is something that just happens to celebrities, but the reality is that it can happen to anyone. Stalking can be defined as persistent and unwanted attention that makes you feel pestered and harassed. It includes behavior that happens two or more times, directed at or towards you by another person, which causes you to feel alarmed or distressed or to fear that violence might be used against you.

Pet Detectives and Rescue Fund is a subsidiary of Ariel Investigations. Our work is conducted in the most ethical manner and according to the laws governing the State of California and New Mexico. We rescue and evaluate abused animals so we can introduce them to a new home.
PDRF was started due to the problem of animal abuse, and neglect has grown beyond the resources of the existing animal welfare agencies. They cannot keep pace with the volume of the issues that need to be addressed. We intercede without hesitation when we are informed of a situation that needs to be addressed.
Our vision is that all animals are treated with dignity and respect and live free from cruelty, harm, and neglect. Simple acts of awareness and compassion can save the lives of countless animals in need. Animals can’t tell you about their abuse or cry out for help, so we decided to stand up for as many of them as we can to stop violence and find them forever happy homes.
Our focus keeps us dedicated to fighting the enormous amount of suffering caused by the pet overpopulation problem by offering a program where we spay and neuter all rescued animals.
Our dream is to one day own property for the abused and abandoned animals and those needing a home because owners are no longer able to care for them.
Our mission is to enhance and coordinate enforcement of animal cruelty laws and to educate interested agencies aspects of animal cruelty and the relationship of animal cruelty to other forms of assaulting behavior.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Through grants and donations. We frequently attend conferences highlighting industry advancements. We are dedicated to continually improving our programs. Pro Bono Help for Survivors   

When it comes down to cases involving stalking and domestic violence, Ariel can almost act like a personal bodyguard, helping a survivor discover if their abuser is stalking them after they’ve left.  

We help survivors avoid being digitally tracked and otherwise stalked by their attackers.  We look for GPS devices on survivors’ cars, illegal spyware on their phones, and evidence that an abuser is stalking a survivor online.

We can gather evidence for court on behalf of a survivor to enforce restraining orders, prosecute domestic violence, or use it in custody cases. Ariel can conduct background checks locating their abuser and helping spot potential abusers in the future. 

These background checks can help determine risk levels and help survivors develop a strategy to avoid their attacker. We can also give survivors advice on how to change their routines to avoid being found by their attacker. As people are trained to blend in, Ariel can be a helpful resource in training survivors on how to disappear.
