How would you like to own the beautiful dogs pictured above? Friendly, healthy, happy, well-groomed, tail-wagging purebred Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. RAISING MY HAND here! I'd like to have ALL of them.
The owner, a USDA licensed breeder, has obviously taken very good care of them. And apparently just got paid off, BIG TIME!
Several "Rescue" groups heard that these dogs would be made available by the owner at public auction. One rescue group actually set up a "Go Fund Me" page for the purpose of bidding on the dogs. In less than two weeks, this one rescue group raised......are you ready for this?......over $183,000!
I'm not sure how many dogs this one particular group bought for the purpose of reselling at retail, but if they bought all 108 of the dogs mentioned in the article, they would immediately have available about $1700 to spend on each and every dog! I'm sure the original owner is laughing all the way to the bank, for getting a big price for these retired breeding dogs.
Not to mention, the "rescue" will be SELLING them soon to the public. Probably for several hundred dollars apiece.
That's ends up netting them over $2000 per dog. Pay for a dental, a quick-snip castration, and WALA! A fast and easy profit.
And they say dog breeders are money-grubbing "puppy mills"! Pot, meet kettle!
Dog breeders don't have bleeding heart donations from fraudulent "Go Fund Me" pages to help them pay their mortgages and veterinary expenses.
Dog breeders must pay for a Federal license. They have to be inspected. They are required to provide proper care and treatment of their dogs, BY LAW. They have to pay a LOT of money to keep their premises in acceptable conditions, to provide regular veterinary care, to pay for permits and fees. They have people watching to make sure that drinking water is fresh, that any medications used are in date, that accommodations are roomy enough.
"Rescues", who in cases like this are really nothing but Retail Rescue pond scum, have NO REGULATION. No care standards, nobody watching to make sure they take good care of their charges. And indeed, we have seen MANY rescues in recent years busted for animal neglect and cruelty.
Any other pet dealer has to be licensed by USDA, but apparently not if you are a self-proclaimed "rescue".
Yet, in the eyes of the public,dog breeders are the "greeders", the bad guys! Dog breeders want to
I ask you, how else can one pay for dog food?
But that doesn't stop people from justifying this insane action. Why, they are saving these dogs from a fate worse than death! Being used for BREEDING! The awful original owner had 100 dogs and was a PUPPY MILL!!
And they are putting this horrible, dog-abusing "miller" out of business.....how? By paying him big bucks for his dogs?
Maybe he can retire...or maybe, he can take that money and go out and buy a whole bunch of new dogs to continue his breeding program.
Good for him! Take the money, because you sure ain't gettin' no respect. Hey, maybe you can get the rescue groups to buy dogs from you again! A lot more profitable than breeding, and easier, too.
The donations for the
That'll buy a whole lotta halo polish.
