"The adopt-a-thon will be held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at The Ranch at The Budweiser Events Center in Loveland."

"Interested parties will be required to provide the names of their veterinarian and farrier (horse shoer), and provide photos and/or a description of where the animals will be kept. Adoption fees will be based upon the price paid to rescue the horse or llama from the slaughter. In a few extreme cases, some vet bills might also apply. A brand inspector will be on site to oversee all adoptions."


I was at first concerned about the use of the word "auction" in the title. Glad to know that adoption is the plan for these innocents.
Noted with hope that they all are found a good home with loving people.

Let's hope they go to homes from the auction and not as a dinner item somewhere.
