I personally would like to thank all of those that travelled the long trek to support this show. It took us 7 hours to arrive in Sulphur to the motel for a trip that usually takes no longer than about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. For many others that trip was much longer. The roads and bridges were icy, so the accidents became a traffic nightmare, but all arrived to the show safe and sound.
This show was so important for all that attended that the absent entries were only 2. It was wonderful seeing old friends and meeting new ones, I do hope that other dog and cat clubs follow Compadres’ lead and also hold a fundraiser for the APHIS injunction to help save our hobby and sport.

Compadres is delighted to announce that a total of $3,867.82 was raised for the injunction and we want to thank EVERYONE who participated in this effort! The breakdown is as follows:
$ 251.00 – Donations to the APHIS Injunction
$ 641.00 – Raffle
$ 967.00 – Kitchen
$2,008.82 – Proceeds from show after all expenses paid
$3,867.82 – TOTAL
A money order for $967.00 from what was made in the kitchen has already been mailed to the Associated Dog Clubs of NYS who is heading up the injunction. A check for the remaining $2900.82 will be mailed to them this week.
I want to note that we had donations from TICA breeders/exhibitors in other regions, as well as from some dog breeders! Compadres greatly appreciates their participation!
