To round out our continuous discussion on dog auctions, we interviewed Erin Morse, founding Director of Midwest Animal ResQ.  Erin gives a first-hand account of what it's like to rescue dogs from the puppy mill industry at dog auctions and offers some learned advice on how to approach it as ethically as possible.
