Puppy Mill Rescue - Help Now
Help dogs rescued during a major puppy mill raid!
The ASPCA's Field Investigations and Response team is assisting with the removal and sheltering of more than 150 dogs from two separate locations owned by a large, substandard, unlicensed breeding facility in Michigan.
The dogs, mainly Jack Russell terriers and Shiba Inus, were discovered living in outdoor enclosures with little protection from the elements. Many dogs had no access to clean drinking water or proper shelter, with plastic carriers as their only refuge from rain, snow or sun. Responders on the scene found the dogs were unsocialized and fearful when handled by humans. The ASPCA believes the facility to be a puppy mill: a large-scale breeding operation where profit is given priority over the well-being of the animals.
"Puppy mill dogs may suffer from living in a variety of inhumane conditions including unsanitary conditions, inadequate veterinary care, and lack of basic necessities and socialization," said Kathryn Destreza, director of Investigations for ASPCA Field Investigations and Response. "Our goal is to see that these animals are healthy and placed with rescue groups where they can find new homes as quickly as possible."
Dogs requiring medical examinations are being transported to a nearby temporary shelter, where they will receive veterinary care from the ASPCA's medical team. Once medical exams are complete, the ASPCA Anti-Cruelty Behavior Team will begin behavior evaluations of dogs at the temporary shelter to determine placement options.
