Angry Auction of 2 Havanese Girls on Saturday in Wheaten, MO

In addition to the 2 Havanese females, there are dozens of other purebred dogs that will be auctioned off Saturday, likely to be going to other puppy mills for forced breeding.

"These are two Havanese little girls that will be auctioned off at a dog auction in Wheaton, MO. Web site www.swkennelauction.com. If some one knows anyone who lives near there and can go and buy YES BUY to save them from going from one puppy mill to another please step up and help. All the money that is spent on showing and advertising our show dogs cant someone step up to the plate and pay for these these two girls. If they happen to be real sick it would be better to put them down than go to another puppy mill. This auction is on Sat. Please spread the word and lets work together and save these girls. If you can stomach it read the auction catalog. It is very sad!!!!!! I understand that rescue will not spend any money for buying Havanese in this type of situation but maybe if someone of us can get them they could go to loving homes. I dont know anything about they except what is listed in the catalog. The owners are Country pups,
Thanks for anything anyone can do.
Mary

Tammy:

Being so far away, the only way I know to help is by spreading the word on social network pages so that someone involved in rescue groups or someone who wants to add a dog in need to his/her family can be aware of the auction.

I have read about a number of rescues that purchase dogs being auctioned off to prevent their being sold to another puppy mill. It is so sad.

Because there are so many breeds listed in their catalog, I am hoping that at least some of these dogs get to go to homes of their own.

"A KENNEL auction??? I've never even heard of such a thing. What a shame"

ClaireVoyant:

Sometimes kennels sell off their less than prime breeding stock, older puppies that they have not been able to sell otherwise, and retired breeders. There could be other situations where the kennel itself has been shut down - by the owner(s) retiring and closing the business, by death of the owner(s) and their heirs not wanting to continue the business, or by the authorities.

I tried to look up the name of the business, but it was difficult to pin down. I also was hoping to use the registration numbers, but the ACA registry site does not seem to have a place to look up those numbers.

So, if you are on Facebook or on other dog forums, you can post Mary Bennell's original post the way I did, quoting her. She says everything right there.

Thanks.

This makes me so sick. I wish I had a lot of money. I would save all of them.

That is so sad. I take everything to heart. Poor Sassi and Zoey and this.

My previous neighbors had a new puppy one day and I asked her where they got her and she said "the auction". I knew cattle was sold at auction, but had no idea dogs were. At least their dog got a good home.

I wonder how much these dogs are sold for? One of the females is 6 years old and, although I don't know anything about breeding, I'm wondering if she's not too old. The other female is only 2 years old.

Maybe if we all donate a small amount we can raise the money the buy these two?

I asked DH if he wanted to go to a dog auction this Sat. Got an emphatic NO. Well I agree with him. I do't go to animal shelters or to orphanages and neither does he. I guess this is something that is done, just haven't heard of it. Probably no different than cattle or horse auctions. Now I know how breeders get so many different breeds of dogs. Something to think about, but nothing that can be done.
