Carthage Humane Society Selling Pure Bred English Bulldogs for $1,000

Well would you look at this…The Carthage Humane Society is selling a pretty nice selection of pure bred English Bulldogs. They have adults for sale as well as 8 week old puppies and 12 week old puppies. Prices are the following: 8 week old bulldogs for $1,000 each, 12 week old bulldogs for $700 each and adults for $300 each.


The shelter in the comments says this is a fair price because… “Our director has been in contact with reputable breeders and organizations to have these dogs appraised”


The Shelter also said THIS in the comments section  “They do have papers, and some are show quality.”

Thats right this shelter has 8-12 week old pure bred english bulldog puppies for sale that are somehow show quality and have been appraised by other breeders!!

The adult English Bulldogs and Pugs will be $300 each, while the 8 week old puppies will be $1,000 each and the 12 week old puppies will be $700 each. They will all be neutered/spayed, and up-to-date on the vaccinations (including Rabies age permitting).

Now the shelter is saying they were not confiscated from a breeder but they were a owner surrender to another agency who then surrendered the dogs to them.  You can see in a photo above they clearly stated…”They were confiscated from a breeder.”

    Your just as bad for letting people sell mixed breeds for high prices. At least these are purebred and hopefully spayed and neutered….

    No Humane Society should be in the business of selling purebred surrenders or confiscated dogs for this profit. Can they guarantee the animals from health issues? Is there any guarantee at all? Do they know the lines and what’s involved? Selling pups as show quality means they
    Will be bred again without guidance or an understanding of the lines and issues. Thus perpetuating a know problem. Signed contracts? Health guarantees? Power of attorney so that ownership can be changed with AKC otherwise no registrable and not show able despite quality. Poor judgement on Humane Society’s part. I’d suggest no longer donating to them should you feel so strongly against.

    If the dog’s were confiscated from a breeder. Then that means there is a case against the breeder. Then the dog’s should not be sold or given away because they are part of an on going case. If the dog’s have been sold then there is not a lot that can be done by the state in regards to Prosecuting someone for animal cruelty.. The dog’s are considered evidence. My local animal shelter has had to hold dog’s for months because of a case where someone had their dog’s confiscated.
    Be very careful when dealing with animal shelters. My dad was a dog officer for many years. Shelters are not run by breeders or Veterinarian’s. They are run buy people who love animals and want to do what’s right for your county. Most of the animal shelter’s are run on donations and volunteers.
    My local animal shelter has a community yard sale every year to help raise money for the shelter. People donated things to the shelter to be sold to help raise money. If people are concerned they should call the Attorney General’s office to make sure that these animals are not involved in a case. If they are they will be stopped from being sold because the Attorney General’s office will not allow these dogs to be sold if it’s part of an ongoing case.

    Even if they come with papers, if they are spayed and neutered they are not elegable to be shown in conformation, only in performance events.

    A $1000 per puppy from a Humane Society? These organizations are there to help animals, not to make a profit off of them.
