100 Dogs Saved From Missouri Puppy Mill

By Sharon Seltzer

Teamwork between several national and local animal welfare groups saved the lives of more than 100 dogs on Tuesday from a puppy mill in Central Missouri.

The owner of the kennel could no longer afford to feed the dogs.

The dogs, which included small breeds such as Dachshunds, Malteses, Shih Tzus, Lhasa Apsos, and large breeds such as Huskies and Boxers, were voluntarily surrendered by the owner of the puppy mill. He contacted a local rescue group, Half-way Home Pet Rescue and explained that he couldn’t afford to feed the dogs. The rescue group called the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals for help.

The Rescue Plan
The ASPCA quickly put a collaborative rescue plan into action. They sent eight members from their Anti-Cruelty team and their 60-foot-long animal transport trailer to the puppy mill. They also enlisted the help of PetSmart Charities to supply the large number of pet transport carriers and crates needed.

The dogs were then transferred to two local animal rescue groups – the Humane Society of Southwest Missouri in Springfield and HSMO in St. Louis. Each of the rescued pups will stay with the rescue groups until they are given a clean bill of health and ready to be adopted into a family of their own.

I think my Shih Tzu came from this rescue, she was a breeder for 5 years in one of these horrible places. She is really an amazing soul to have survived and still loves people
