    Default dog auctions

    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

    @bulldog family, I have heard of these before this is aweful. Do rescues actually purchase the animals? Just looking for opinions about this not trying to be contriversial, but it seems to me that iif rescues go to these and "buy" the pups to save them it sort of perpetuates the auctions. I can see both sides and I feel for the animals but i don't like the idea of giving these idiots money either

    Yes these do sicken me, I wish they were all shut down. @dozersmama I agree it sounds awful giving them money but then to think of the other side of it and what happens if they dont buy any. Heartbreaking. Sadly there are so many people willing to buy the pups at these auctions that there is no way to shut them down without laws being in place to do so. Buying a few to save them, or stopping doing so wont be enough to make a dent in their business unfortunately. Better to save what they can when they can I say and hopefully someday the laws will start to protect these neglected and abused little pups.

    Wow I didn't know this went on. I can definitely see what @dozersmama is saying about not wanting to feed this by financially supporting this kind of thing BUT when I read "Most dogs without buyers are killed" the emotional me comes out and if I were there I'd probably spend a fortune saving any dog that no one else took and that I thought would be killed.

    this happens and there is a website to see all upcoming and current auctions. They also publish a catalog to show you what is coming up for auction. which to me us just unbelievable. Right now all those puppy mills in MO that have to get down to 50 dogs are going through auctions to get rid of their "overstock" there is going to be one in April for just Bulldogs. It is unfortunate that some rescues have to go and save what they can. Of course puppy mills are going to get rid of their oldest, weakest and sickest dogs and those don't sell that well. So yes, rescues come to the rescue and bid on them, sometimes just 100 or so, but they are saved and brought back to health. BCA doesn't like the idea of rescues buying dogs, however the main focus here is helping out the bulldog.

    It is in a small town (I think anyways) If I remember correctly Wheaton? if I am not mistaken it is in the S/W corner, about a hour from Springfield. I guess there is a big auction area there. They don't all go for in the Hundreds, but most of the sick ones do.

    These auctions are heartbreaking. They make me so Most rescues dont pay for dogs. The IBR never does, but other advocacy groups will go to these auctions to get as many as they can and surrender them to rescues.

    Thats just fine. Just understand these bullies are often expensive to get healthy and socialize so always check with the rescue first to see if they can afford taking them. We always will if we can.
