Beware of Online Puppy Scams

Carolina Mountain Dog is reprinting this important information from the ASPCA:

Rottweiler-1785760_1920Many families who spent much of the year in their homes due to the COVID-19 pandemic turned to the Internet to look for a pet. Unfortunately, more people looking for pets online means more people looking to profit. In 2020, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) has reported a record-high number of scams related to online puppy purchases. 

According to the BBB, the number of pet scams reported in 2020 will be more than double the number reported last year, and five times higher than in 2017 with families reporting that they paid for dogs they never received—and maybe never existed. These scams resulted in families losing over $3 million.  

But falling for a scam isn’t the only risk to buying a puppy online. Puppy purchasers have also reported receiving different puppies from the ones they “ordered,” sick puppies or a seller that disappears once the dog is shipped. 

And even if your mail-ordered pup is as cute and healthy as you hoped, there are real risks you may not have considered to buying a dog over the Internet—ones that harm dogs. Online, every seller markets themselves as a responsible, caring breeder of high-quality pups but the thousands of dollars sent to a far-away seller may actually be helping keep a puppy mill in business.

Cruel breeders use deceptive photos and slick websites to fool families. They exploit weak laws that allow them to keep dogs in conditions no one who loves dogs would accept. They use their profits not to provide better care for dogs, but to breed and sell more puppies.  

No animal lover wants to support cruelty. If you’re looking to add a dog to your family, please consider adoption and work with a reputable local shelter or rescue, or visit a responsible breeder

Please Note:

  • Masks are required for the safety of our adopters and staff.

Adoptions will still happen on a first come, first served basis. We will also continue to follow our practice of Open Adoptions, meaning each potential adopter will meet one-on-one with a trained Adoption Counselor to ensure the match is a good fit for both the animal and their new family.

November is Adopt A Senior Pet Month

Old-dog-3303296_1920November is "Adopt a Senior Pet" Month... and senior dogs are the best! Here's why, according to the ASPCA:

"While small kittens and puppies may be adorable, older pets are just as loving and loyal as their younger counterparts. Not to mention, adopting a senior animal companion comes with some cool advantages:

  • Grown-up pets don’t require the constant monitoring and training that puppies and kittens do.
  • Many are already housetrained.
  • Since senior pets are fully grown, you’ll be immediately aware of important information like personality type and grooming requirements, making it easier to choose the perfect pet for your family."

Now's the time to adopt a senior dog. Check out your local shelter or rescue organization.

Adopting a Dog? You Need to Ask These 20 Questions

Dog-3435827_1920If you've decided to adopt a dog, congratulations! It's a wonderful thing to do and it will be exciting for you. In the excitement, though, you want to be sure you are making a smart choice and adopting a dog that's right for you and your family. One of the biggest reasons adopted dogs are surrendered is because the adopter didn't think carefully about what kind of dog was a good fit.

That's why you should find the list of 20 questions put together by YourDogAdvisor.com to be really helpful.

Some of the questions -- with the answers -- included in this list are:

How big is the dog going to get?

Was the dog handed in or is it a stray?

Has the dog's socialization skills been assessed?

What are the dog's energy levels?

Does the dog have any specific grooming requirements?

Check out all of the 20 questions and their answers here: https://yourdogadvisor.com/questions-to-ask-when-adopting-a-dog/

Watauga Humane Society, Boone, NC COVID Information

Screen Shot 2020-08-11 at 2.45.03 PMCurrently, Watauga Humane Society continues to be closed to the general public, however the organization is continuing to schedule fosters, adoptions, and owner surrenders by appointment.

Cashiers Highlands Humane Society COVID-19 Information

From David Stroud, Executive Director, Cashiers Highlands Humane Society:

Screen Shot 2020-07-22 at 2.24.37 PMHOW WE CAN HELP YOU

Our no-kill shelter remains open to the public but in consideration of the guidelines issued by national, state and local authorities, for (what we hope is a brief and yet) the foreseeable future, visits to our shelter will be by appointment only. This will allow us to serve you under the safest possible conditions. For adoptions, donations, and other community outreach programs (see below), we respectfully ask that appointments be made Tuesday-Saturday between 10am-4pm. Please call us at (828)743-5752 to make an appointment.

THE $30 FIX

As we have done for more than 4,000 pets in the past 6 years, CHHS will continue to provide low-cost spay/neuter for your pets for just $30. If that is a hardship, we will fix your pets for free. That's right. For free.

CHHS "MEALS FROM MONTY" PET PANTRY

If you are facing financial hardship and cannot afford to buy pet food, as long as donations continue (please see below) we can provide some food for your pet free of charge. We ask that your pet be spayed/neutered, and if not, we can fix your pet for free. After all, if feeding one animal is a hardship, think of how much it will cost to feed a litter of puppies or kittens!

RABIES VACCINATIONS

There are only 350 Certified Rabies Vaccinators (CRV's) in the state of North Carolina. We have 2 CRV's on staff. Only veterinarians and CRV's can give your pet a rabies vaccination and certificate required by North Carolina law. We always provide rabies vaccinations for just $10. But for now and until we get past this crisis, we will vaccinate your pet to protect against rabies for free. Yes, free.

HOW YOU CAN HELP US

There is no way to sugarcoat this. We need adoptions, we need fosters, and we urgently need donations. Please help if you can.

ADOPT

I realize these are uncertain times, but if you have been thinking of bringing a canine or feline companion into your home, what better way to self-quarantine and social distance than with a shelter pet? Please consider opening your heart and home for the unconditional love of a CHHS shelter pet.

FOSTER

If you love animals but are unable to take on the permanent commitment of lifetime adoption, then foster parenting is the perfect alternative! By temporarily fostering a CHHS shelter pet, you are actually helping us save two lives - the foster pet you are caring for, and the open space that creates in our shelter for us to save another animal in our community. CHHS provides any and all necessary medications, food, arrangements for veterinarian visits and a 24-hour hotline number for emergencies.

DONATE

The cost to care for the homeless animals in our community has skyrocketed. If you can, please consider a donation to help CHHS care for this increased influx of pets with either a financial gift or a donation of food and supplies.

Brother Wolf Adds Second Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinic

Clinic-1-of-1
Brother Wolf Animal Rescue has announced the launch of a second mobile spay/neuter clinic. According to the organization, "The coronavirus pandemic halted spay and neuter surgeries nationwide as communities were forced to suspend non-emergency veterinary services. This has resulted in a huge backlog of unaltered animals. We have a list of over 500 animals needing our services! Even before this pandemic, we couldn’t meet the need with just one clinic. This is why it’s more critical than ever to have a second mobile spay and neuter clinic serving animals in Western NC.

"A second clinic will double our capacity, enabling us to serve an average of 180 animals each week! Spaying and neutering is so critical because it saves lives by reducing pet overpopulation. This second mobile clinic will travel around Western NC, providing low-cost services to many under-resourced communities. The ripple effect of 180 alteration surgeries a week is huge for animals!"

Brother Wolf is seeking donations for their second clinic. To donate: https://secure.qgiv.com/event/clinic/

Beware of Puppy Mills

Rottweiler-1785760_1920Sadly, North Carolina does not currently have a law that bans puppy mills or backyard breeders. While there are certainly responsible breeders in the state, puppies offered for sale at pet stores, through classifieds, at flea markets and by neighbors could be cause for concern. Many of the animals offered for sale through such means could have been raised in horrendous conditions. They could be medically or behaviorally unfit to be adopted. That's why, for most consumers, the better choice is to adopt a dog from your local animal shelter or humane society.

Here are some facts about puppy mills you should know from The Puppy Mill Project, a nonprofit organization:

A puppy mill is a breeding operation that breeds dogs for profit, prioritizing financial gain over the health or well-being of the dogs. If a breeding operation breeds for profit and sells to pet stores or to consumers over the Internet, it is not a responsible breeding facility. While puppy mills may vary in size and conditions, any breeding operation that places profit over the health or well-being of the dogs can be accurately described as a puppy mill. We will never use the term puppy mill, commercial breeder, or puppy farm to describe a responsible, reputable breeder.

If a pet store claims it buys only from "licensed breeders," this doesn’t mean anything more than that the breeders are licensed to sell to pet stores and that they meet the USDA’s minimal standards. The USDA’s standards for care of companion animals are extremely minimal, and these standards are not adequately enforced. Pet stores will often tout that their puppies only come from the best USDA-licensed facilities, yet the conditions in USDA compliant facilities are often far below what most people would consider acceptable for companion animals.

Pet stores are the primary sales outlet for commercially-bred puppies. Pet stores are necessary to sustain and perpetuate the puppy mill industry. It is imperative to cut off the end of the supply chain to decrease the number of puppy mills. Further, pet stores are complicit in consumer fraud. Pet stores often misrepresent the true origins of their puppies and mislead consumers into believing that they are purchasing a responsibly and humanely-bred puppy. Focusing our educational and advocacy efforts on pet stores is an extremely effective way to fight puppy mills.
