I see that Brenda Barnette isn't answering my challenge to name one place she has sent dogs to that is no longer having to euthanize for time and space.
This transporting of dogs scheme, of which BB is the ring leader, is now coming into the spotlight and people are beginning to realize that it is not what it is cracked up to be. It is a way to keep the Whinonettes in business by supplying them with "rescued" dogs and thereby taking away the homes available to the local shelter dogs. When these shelter dogs are euthanized, these same groups scream and yell for "No Kill". How vile can people be!!
I received this email and it points out that many people are waking up to this scheme and how inhumane it truly is. Brenda Barnette doesn't know what happens to those dogs she is sending into Canada and I would venture to say, she doesn't care.

Please- STOP the transports to who knows where, it is nothing but suffering for the animals, and now of course scammers have found a way to make a profit, and could care less about the animals. See below for the latest- we are only beginning to find out what REALLY happens on these transports. There is NO shortage of homeless dogs in Canada, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, etc- just take a look on petfinder and see who is available!! Do you care if the animals die in transport, are sold to anyone with $$ including hoarders and dog fighters, or these brokers SELL these dogs to RESEARCH LABS?! Wake up people! Anyone can sound good or look good online! Don't be naiive! You pat yourself on the back while the animals SUFFER!
See below for the latest. It's just sickening.

I have received information from a VERY close and reputable source and wanted to pass on the information below. I am declining to disclose who my friend is. Please be aware and take critical precautions. I will not tell you what to do or not to do, but only to give you the information you need to make a clear decision in your mind about the dogs you are trying to rescue and re-home via transport..
Just wanted to relay a conversation I had with a CCAS volunteer yesterday. She told me that Lee Kinsel is driving WDR's van and charging $30 per dog. Apparently he has done several trips to Oregon, Washington and Canada that involved Contra Costa County dogs. Sue told me that apparently he is cramming as many as 30 dogs in the van in very small crates and that they don't get out for potty breaks and may or may not get food or water during the trip. She told me that one dog that was sent up to Washington was so traumatized after the trip that it had to be put down.....She won't use him any more for transport..... 30 dogs...that's $900 per trip....
So it appears I am not the only one concerned for these animals being dumped with God only knows who, what and where. How many animals are going to suffer in Breeder Brenda Barnette's grand scheme to make Nathan Winograd into a God?
