So a quick plug for something that just came up as help is needed. On Wednesday I was notified of an upcoming dog auction that was a kennel liquidation of 40+ papillons in Oklahoma on December 7th. I clicked the link of the auction site and noted that there were a few kennel names I recognized. So after poking around with questions among the community is was decided with some controversy that the attempt would be made to purchase these dogs in the auction, return the ones to the breeders who wanted them, and place the rest through two rescues. So this attempt needs some help. First off - Money is needed and there isn't a ton of time to raise this money. Even a couple of bucks would be a help. There is a go fund me page http://www.gofundme.com/htt494 and a paypal account email@example.com Secondly there is an auction page on facebook. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1517194575225647/ Thirdly, fosters and adopters are needed. The youngest of these dogs is a few months old and the oldest are just over 10. They are kennel dogs and have the baggage that comes with that. If you are interested in fostering/adopting you can email Papadopters@comcast.net Finally - This auction is happening and there is nothing we can do about that. It's not illegal - the breeders who are affected are aware of it and doing what they can about it. So please don't call the auction house, the kennel owner, the police, or Ellen (who is a giant peta supporter). Please don't go to the auction. It just drives up bidding. I realize purchasing dogs who are up for auction is controversial but if it was one of yours could you stand by and do nothing? The community decided that we couldn't in this case and to that affect will do what we must to save these 40+. Thanks for reading. Thanks for helping/sharing/caring if you can.
