for getting involved with the campaign against the dog auction in Geauga County which is one county over from me. Anything you can do is greatly appreciated. For anyone in the Ohio area there will be a peaceful protest of the auction. More info in the following email I received...

Dear Companion Pet Lovers ~

The momentum for the Geauga County, OH Dog Auction Protest scheduled for Sat., April 21 (location TBC) is building!

Led by the dedicated efforts of Coordinators Kristina Lange (equinegirl2004(at)yahoo.com) and Cindy Berman (ckberman(at)yahoo.com ) - and with the assistance of legal counsel, Jeff Kocian of NEO SPCA, Kelcey Meadows of HSUS Washington D.C. and several major foundations - tremendous strides are being made in preparation for what is expected to be a very successful protest. Our campaign to address this very important issue for Ohio citizens has even reached the "ears and eyes" of Karlin Lillington, journalist and columnist for The Irish Times!

I will be meeting with Kristina tomorrow afternoon to further discuss details surrounding this very important event. In the interim, Cindy has created a Yahoo! discussion group - http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/S...ugaDogAuction/ - where approved members can share their ideas and provide support.

Thanks everyone for continuing to serve as a voice for those canine companions who cannot speak for themselves!
