The Humane Society of Missouri Animal Cruelty Task Force, working in cooperation with the Missouri Department of Agriculture, rescued 135 adult dogs and puppies from the facility yesterday, February 26, 2014.
The dog breeds include: Beagle, Boston Terrier, Cocker Spaniel, French Bull Dog, Pug, Miniature Poodle, Miniature Schnauzer, Shih Tzu, Yorkshire Terrier and mixes of those dog breeds.
The dogs have been taken to HSMO headquarters in St Louis where they are receiving veterinary examinations and treatment, spay / neuter surgeries, and socialization prior to be made available for adoption.
The HSMO notes: The rehabilitation of these dogs will take time. As the dogs become available for adoption, they will be listed on the HSMO online adoptable pet database.
