"Originally, rescues attended auctions to get the old and the sick dogs, and we paid very little for them," says Penny Reames, a Kansas rescuer who has attended the auctions for a decade, transferring the dogs to northern New England Westie Rescue in New Hampshire, which adopts them out for as much as $1,000 apiece.
