Harley’s Dream Auction Raises $35,958

When we first decided to hold an online auction, our hopes were to raise about $10,000 to $15,000 (with a dream to raise even more). But … the very first day of the week-long auction, bidding reached $15,000!!! We were astounded! We were also feeling very emotional. We realized that in addition to having so many wonderful items available to bid on, the reason that we did – and the driving force – was the love and support everyone has for Harley, Teddy and our mission. Our gratitude cannot be described in words. Honestly, we are still trying to soak it all in.

We cannot thank you enough, dear friends, for donating, bidding, sharing and just “being there.” Never in our wildest dreams did we expect to raise almost $36,000. That money will go far in educating people about puppy mills. Harley is most certainly very proud. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!

  1. It was our pleasure and a whole lot of fun. Thank you for parting with so many of Harley’s things. It’s a thrill to own something of his.

  2. Harley has really touched people’s hearts! Maybe more attention will be paid to the terrible conditions of puppy mills and they will begin being shut down.

  3. Can’t wait to get my sunflower pictures and my heart necklace. Love like Harley. Fantastic job Dan and Rudi. Thank you Teddy for being a true friend.

  4. Congratulations so happy you did so good .. I tried to bid but the prices were out of my reach on the items i was interested in <3 it was a awesome auction so many great items .. Love you all

  5. God bless all the people that donated to this wonderful auction. God bless all of the bidders. God bless Rudi and Dan Taylor for giving Harley the best years of his life. God bless Teddy and his mom for helping Taylor’s carry the torch. But most of all Dear God please bless all the thousands of dogs still living in the puppy mills. Let’s get them out let’s close all the puppy mills

  6. Hi Rudi and Dan,I love Harley.  He taught me what a puppy mill is.  I couldn’t afford to purchase anything from the auction because I am on disability due to brain tumor and subsequent brain surgery that left me with a paralyzed foot. You shared Harley with us all and he is so loved. I live in Northern NJ .  I hope you can put a billboard up here. Gratefully,Monica 

  7. That is so fabulous!!! So many people love Harley and of course both of you…… I am so happy for you, the results of this auction must give you renewed hope and strength to carry on with Harley’s mission….. Congratulations…You deserve it!! <3 <3 <3

  8. How WONDERFUL!!! I’m so proud to have been a part of this auction! Unfortunately, I was out bid on everything, but fortunately my bids also helped drive up the bids to raise even more money!
    Even though I’ve never met Harley or Teddy, I will always love them!
    Thanks for all of the hard work you guys do!
    💜 Vicki

  9. I was proud to be a part of it and happily will be receiving one of Harley’s treasures. My own puppy mill survivor will sleep with it and feel close to his hero Harley.

  10. Hearing about how well you did in the auction just fills my heart to overflowing. The love we all still have for little Harley and his purpose still lives on and is growing stronger each day. Hopefully one day we will see the end to puppy mills! God bless!
