On Monday, June 14, 2010, rescuers from the Missouri Department of Agriculture and the Humane Society of Missouri Animal Cruelty Task Force, liberated more than 40 puppies and 60 adults living in extremely unsanitary and unsafe conditions. The Miller Co. Sheriff’s Department had obtained a warrant to inspect the property and an independent veterinarian recommended that, because the condition of the animals and the property was so bad, all of the puppies and adults used for breeding should be removed.
All of the other dogs were brought to the Humane Society of Missouri’s St. Louis headquarters. They were examined by staff veterinarians and immediately received the treatment and care they so desperately needed.
Puppy mill puppies can cost unsuspecting buyers much heartache and a lot of money. Support the Humane Society of Missouri’s Animal Cruelty Fund. Puppy mill survivors everywhere thank you!
