The female dogs aren't the only bitches at Animal Village. Sunny Aris is also, well a bitch! She is in serious need of meds for mental issues! A fake and a nutcase. Avoid her! She's just not nice or to be trusted.
It is not about her; it is about saving animals. They still need you whether you like her or not.

Yes it is about the animals and not Sunny. I would like to see a sincere and stable person in there running the operation. She gets discounted sterilizations and shots and other vet services at reduced rated which is good but has outrageous prices on the animals who stay there for months on end. I have witnessed animals who have been in cages so long they pace circles in their cages. She doesn't seem to care about that. Just the 200 dollar price tag that she won't budge on. I have seen posts here claiming whe brings in all the dogs at night and I'm here to say that isn't true. Just go out there after closing. You'll see and hear the large dogs are outside barking despite the temperature. She's has several parvo outbreaks in the past year as well as giardia. This is due to her getting animals cheaply out of shelters. Not taking them to a vet for an exam before bringing them into her facility and exposing boarding animals and her own to contageous diseases. She does not quarantine them properly or long enough. As well as boarding and exposing cats to contageous respiratory illnesses. Her own animals in the same room as animals being boarded and everyone got sick. All in the name of money! These are the facts! As well as a NON profit shelter making PROFITS by boarding! She legally can't do both! I love no kill shelters. So does the public. And this lazy individual does little more than scouring shelters for merchandise. Does her cutsie pukey radio ads. Carries her green cellphone to take cute pics for advertising and yells at her overworked and underappreciated staff. Save the pats on the back for her staff! She's a greedy fake using adorable animals and something that looks good for the exterior to see. Meanwhile she camps in her apartment and watches TV all day. She didn't even know her personal pet dog was dead in her personal pen behind her apartment. A staff memer found it! I will be glad when she leaves and a sincere animal lover and not a money lover takes over. If anyone wants to rake me over the coals for this post please go work there for a month before you rip me apart here. See if you have different feelings once you're there for a month and witness it first hand.

Yes I have to agree with Just Me. I wanted to find out for myself about Sunny. So I spent some time at Animal Village. Sunny is a Jeckyl and Hyde persona. When she thinks she's alone with her staff she yells and talks down to these hard working people. The lady in the office is a saint. I don't know how she puts up with the verbal abuse from Sunny! The staff works hard. She pays minimum wage. She expects slave type work from so little salary. No thank yous are ever given by Sunny either. Only criticism. I never saw her doing anything except browbeating and bitching. Things the public doesn't know. All food donations except treats go out of the county. Collars unlkess blue or pink go for her garage sales as well as pet clothing donated isn't used. The animals if they do see clothing is only used for photos then its sold. The larger dogs really are kept outside. Despite the weather. The animals are not properly quarantined when arriving exposing the boarders and animals for sale to parvo giardia worms and fleas as stated by Just Me. Both have been problems recently at this facility as they are also not checked by a vet before they are brought to Animal Village. She really does make a profit when she boards. Any monies brought in at the facility thus makes it not a non profit facility. I have some questions about the 42 inch HDTV box on her porch if the animals use this item as well as why this person has 3 vehicles if she's so devoted to the animals. I also think she's lazy. I wish she would move and a true animal lover would take over. That would be better for the staff as well as the animals. Don't be fooled by Sunny Aris. If you have your doubts hire on. You'll see the truth too!

Aris is a woman of some Mystery. For instance the name Sunny on all of the legal documents seems odd for someone born Ramona R. Delgado that, under than name, married a man named Donald Aris in 1978 in LA making her name Ramona R. Aris.

Did she really change her first name to "Sunny"? Or was that at the root of her 2 citations for license and registration problems and the delay on obtaining her 501c status? Just for grins google ramona delgado Ruidoso.

Why would you change your name from Ramona to Sunny legally? Why would you use a ficticious name on legal papers if you did not?

But where else but NM could you erase your past in this way? More on this later.

Oh sure it is. Here she is in 1999 in the LA Daily News talking about here search for information on her late father Frank Delgado

When Sunny Aris began researching her late father's life back in 1996 when her son joined the Army, she was mostly interested in his military career and service in World War II.

But her search led her instead to Frank Delgado's childhood in Simi Valley and the discovery that her father was among hundreds of Latino grade-school pupils separated from their white peers at school.

In 1998 she is looking for information on her father Frank Delgado's service in Korea.

This morning I was considering that question about why someone would go from Ramona to Sunny. I had this thought cross my mind, silly thing, what if she did it to avoid bill collectors since Sunny sounds just like Sonny.
Stupid, right? I mean would someone change their name just for that? Of course not. Sunny sounds a lot whiter than Ramona, but that is for a later chapter.

But... you sometimes find the funniest things in court records. First a preliminary matter brought on by your ridiculous attempt to make me seem incredible

License information taken from records of the Bureau of Real Estate on 4/6/2014 12:17:07 AM
License Type: BROKER
Name: Aris, Sunny Rachelle
Mailing Address:[redacted -> TOS]
VENTURA, CA
(Above address is marked unreliable in DRE database)
Former Name(s): Delgado, Ramona Rachelle
http://www2.dre.ca.gov/PublicASP/pplinfo.asp...

Now shut your pie hole and have a laugh.

Now back to the funny part I promised. In this one case in Ventura County I really did have to read this three times and ask someone else to read it too to make sure I had it right. Check this out. Case is an $1100 advertising bill.

01/28/1997: PLAINTIFF'S CLAIM of JOHN P SCRIPPS NEWSPAPERS served by registered process server as to SUNNY ARIS on 01/14/97 by substitute service on KAREN ARIS (WIFE & CO-OCCUPANT OF DEFENDANT). Costs $30.00. Hearing date: 02/04/97.

Now tell me that isn't some funny stuff there.

Imagine if that is the same Sunny Aris of Ventura County, CA that has been taking the public and private funds of the community and attacking and trashing members of this community?

Here is one of her claims

Aris describes herself as "a tree-hugger from California." She was a successful real estate broker in Southern California for many years. As a "thank you," a client whom Aris helped become a multi-millionaire, offered her a choice of one of three homes in Ruidoso. All she had to do was assume payments on the property - all equity was given to her has a gift. "Because I was so busy at the time, I was reluctant at first," she explained."One day he showed up, scooped me up and the next thing I know I'm in front of the Inn of the Mountain Gods. I selected one of the homes and a mere 19 years later, in 2000, I moved in."
Ruidoso News 09/11/2011

Yep, you guessed it

10/24/1997: Writ of EXECUTION from Ventura County returned PARTIALLY satisfied with additional costs of $26.00.

Hollywood writers could not make this up!

Kudos and high fives go to you for all your homework. When you find more I surely want to know so please share it with us. I heard of her future plans. On that land where Animal Village sits she plans to expand within the next year or two to make a much larger 2 level facility. When I have spoken with her she says she's put her whole lifes savings into this. Taking credit for the whole idea work monies etc. Never was the name Nancy mentioned in these conversations. The workers had to fill me in. Nancy is the other half of Animal Village. She is from Ruidoso and rarely comes to Alamogordo. But its my understanding her son is the one who comes down from Ruidoso to transport all the donated foods up to Ruidoso. I wonder if Nancy knows of all the shady things that Sunny or whatever her real name is up to. If not itd sure be great to make sure she learns of it. Or Sunnys expansion plans. Who is going to pay for that? I want this piece of work to move! Anyone who thinks Sunny is a good person just has to work for her for a month. Her real side shows quickly as the wolf in sheeps clothing!

Information Please. I've read your last post a few times and am not sure I'm reading what I think I'm reading. She had a wife named Karen? Whatever became of Donald. This is like a soap opera! I'm going to call it "As the Stomach Churns"! Am I reading this correctly? And why would some guy give her a house in Ruidoso? I'd love the true story on that one too!

No, there was/is no Karen Aris anywhere near Ventura. The process was for her for deadbeating the local newspaper. It was in the nature of trying to dodge service. In another case that involves a series of fraudulent transactions shortly before Sunny Aris bailed out of CA she signed her name as Sonny and responded in court papers signing and printing the name Sonny Aris. I mean print like typewritten or computer printed.

The point here is that Sunny Aris is a thief, fraud and liar. No records exist anywhere to support her claim of being a wealthy and successful realtor, just records that show her to be a forger, perjurer and a fraud.

Think about it. Does a rich successful realtor really stiff the local paper on an $1100 advertising bill or use a fictitious name and business to sell old used defective mobile homes? Or are those the actions of a pathological liar?

If you convince the people you are rich then no one will really suspect embezzlement when you go about spending the public support, but if you do the math from just her public statements like her claim that the vet she ran her spay neuter voucher program with did 9000 sterilizations a year at only 2 days a week. Around 90 a day? Liar.

It sure would be nice to get her on down the road. I've caught her in numerous lies. She will make up that you promised to do something for her that you never said you'd do. She takes advantage of people. I think she could get into a lot of trouble in regards to getting boarding fees at her non profit shelter. I wonder who this Nancy person is. Maybe that too is another one of Ramona's fictitious names. I'd love to see her move back to California. Why is she here?

She is here because a lot of people in the greater Otero area are much more trusting than people in many, more hardened, communities.

The examples are all around.

Digging up an old landfill probably laden with mercury for a shot at colgate country level notice.

Cookie Company.
Cookie companies...
Wood chips.
Cattail refinery.
Ok I'll stop.

Like a tourist with a camera staring the top of a skyscraper in Bermuda shorts. There are also wolves among you that wheel in the gift horse.

This is much bigger than Ramona. Quite a few locals did harm to others that actually contribute to the community in order to provide her opportunities. That's next.

I am definitely looking foward to your next post! I have seen her first hand. I think she uses animals as a commodity. Something cute and adorable to line her pockets. She lays it on thick when people are looking. I've seen her make hardworking staff members cry. Has employee meetings feeding them desserts while telling them how worthless they are. Those people work their asses off. I am definitely on board with you! What can we do though? I hope she leaves before putting up her new facility.

Consider this. She picks o er what she can get her hands on looking for the cute ones that will sell fast. Those animals would have been adopted from the shelters. Net effect on euthanasia? Probably very low and may even swing the other way. Simple con. Play on the motions, offer the solution, price it. Not even a first rate con since she didn't bother to really learn the business. Her vet need some sunshine as well. But she is one of those henchmen I will get to as time permits.

You could look up the plaintiff in the trailer case. The name fraud tolled the statute of limitations and he might be able to persuade the judge and police to run with their new discovery. This could be better than Where's Waldo.

About what happened to her husband and kid(s)? Very interesting and bizarre! I'm glued here to Topix like a good TV show. Only this is real.
