The attached email and news article refer to ~12 dachshunds that were impounded last April that have been stuck in judicial bureaucratic red tape at the shelter ever since. Anyone know what state law might govern requiring that the dogs be auctioned rather than adopted out? Anyone know of any doxie rescues other than the ones above that might also respond? Please forward to anyone else that might respond. Emails can be sent to the sheriff management at email@example.com. The phone # for the sheriff is 676-6252. The chief ACO, Jason Alexander, can be reached at 676-6210 or 676-6299.

Looks like Bristol TN plans to auction off dogs seized in abuse case rather than have them adopted. This is very similar to the decision made by the judge in Williamson Co TN with the Puppymill Maltese seized almost 3 years ago. Or the puppymill auction in Bartow Co GA this past year. That means that the dogs will most likely be "claimed" or successfully bid on by other abusers/puppymiller owners. This should NOT happen!
Fortunately in the Williamson Co case, volunteers and county officials convinced the judge not to do this. But it took the money of many volunteers and a generous benefactor to pay the puppymiller's fines and expenses and the puppymiller agreeing to this in exchange for surrendering the dogs to the county, where they were then adopted.
