St. Joseph's in Sylvania will be auctioning off a puppy this Saturday. Not to the most responsible person who has thought through this huge commitment beforehand, but to the highest bidder.
Would anyone be willing to call, email, or crosspost this?
St. Joseph's: 419-882-6670
Principal Mrs. Sally Koppinger email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Business Manager Mr. Jim Floyd email: email@example.com
The President of Lourdes College is sponsoring this event. She (Theresa Houp) can be contacted at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please politely ask them to reconsider auctioning a puppy, and you may even want to propose they instead auction an adoption certificate from the Toledo Area Humane Society.
Points to make:
The serious, lifelong commitment to bringing a pet into a home.
The careful consideration required before deciding on a pet that will fit in with your family and lifestyle.
Auctions create a desire to "win" rather than the careful consideration required.
Pets purchased at auction often end up in shelters and homeless.
There will also be a protest at the event if you care to join.
