And the Highest Bidder Wins...Freedom.
Our local rescue group is on their way to do what we call a "Super Save," and hundreds of us who donated to this event are waiting anxiously to meet the faces that our money helped free from hell. Dog Ranch Rescue is on their way to a "Dog Auction", posing as puppy mill owners, but blogging every scent, sound and tear-jerking moment. This team fights using their bids to win every dog they can in an effort to save them, and brings the dogs back to their boarding/daycare ranch, providing every dog with intensive healthcare, and documenting each life as it is transformed. Follow them on Facebook to watch the uplifting stories.
When you see social media messages asking you to adopt from rescue groups, it is because nearly every pet store gets their puppies straight from the mill dog mommas who live tortured lives to provide the pet stores with their litters. Nothing is changing for these dogs. So rescues like Dog Ranch Rescue go to the auctions, posing as mill owners, freeing as many dogs as possible from a life of hell. At the last swap, Dog Ranch Rescue and other rescues around the country coordinated their bids -- of 285 dogs on the table, 135 were saved by rescues.
THE PAWSITIVE UPDATE:
Dog Ranch Rescue retrieved a whopping 49 dogs and are giving them a second chance at a life they deserve. These dogs never have to spend their long days in a cold, cramped and cruel puppy mill again!
