The Humane Society of the United States said the rescue of 97 dogs and one cat from deplorable conditions in a Tennessee puppy mill began with an anonymous tip.
When the Marshall County sheriff’s department received a call from a Good Samaritan about dogs being abused at a nearby puppy mill, they asked HSUS to lead the rescue mission to free the animals. The team arrived and transported 97 dogs and one cat to their emergency shelter.
HSUS said it was the 12th deployment of their animal rescue team to Tennessee in the past three years – more than any other state.
The organization has now rescued more than 2,300 animals from puppy mills, horse neglect, animal fighting and other cruelty cases in this one state.
Here is amazing video from HSUS when they first arrive at the Tennessee puppy mill. The facility has shut down.
