Q: Auctioning off a dog for charity...good idea or bad idea?
March 6, 2009 | By lori | 53 answers | Expired: 2393 days ago
A local charity (non animal related) has decided to auction off a dog this year to raise money. I want people's opinions. Is this a good idea or bad idea and why? From their email, they will be offering a puppy at the auction and want suggestions of breed so they can get that type of dog from a breeder.

I've heard of it being done before, but as a part of an animal related fund raiser and as a youngish shelter dog. I don't really think the idea of getting a purebreed puppy for the auction sounds like a good idea. As Jayne M. said, there's a risk of not enough thought going into the ownership, and I think too there's a risk of it being a 'fashion accessory purchase' which is never a good motive for a pet.
