Shelters auctioning off horses they receive??
Well, this is news for me.
This 18mo old colt was dropped off at a very large animal shelter in Los Angeles County. This shelter, along with a similar one in Pasadena, handles a massive volume of dogs and cats brought in from the community. I've never heard of a horse being brought in, but well, here we are.
The discussion going under the FB photo reveals the shelter is not putting him up for adoption, but rather holding an auction for him. Umm...what? According to some of the others commenting on the photo, this is not too unusual a practice, and can be done privately and/or online. Again--I've never heard of such a thing. Have you?
