Amazing Video of Puppy Mill Rescue

Amazing Video of Puppy Mill Rescue

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.

Wonderful news. Now if we could only get them all shut down. They keep those animals in squalor conditions, sell them for big money and a lot of them are sick and disease ridden with conditions that do not show up until they are older and you have totally fallen in love with them and spend big money to fix them and sometimes that doesn't work and you lose them and end up with a broken heart like a friend of mine. Adopt, at least those animals are checked out and you may save a life and not suffer a broken heart. They will be eternally grateful and loving.

This is so inhumane.....my thought is that every human that isvolved in running puppy mills should, themselves, live in the confines of a small cage where they have to eat, sleep, urinate and defecate in the very same cage...but on the other hand, they don't deserve to breathe the same air as these poor beautiful little animals had to endure....Animal abuse must becomea class 1 felonay and punishable by jail time and a criminal record and never be allowed around animals or children for the rest of their lives and the only place this would happen is in the confines of jail. the friggin people aren't even human.

My heart melts upon seeing the puppy mills. The dogs are in poor condition, God have mercy on this animals. I want to be a member of Humane Society and saves all dogs and cats and other animals all over the world. :(

There exists so many horrors in our society today, but when defenseless animals are so poorly mistreated, is an abomination beyond understanding. These people are NOT human, they are the epitomy of the lowest forms of life & should be exterminated.
We need to strengthen our laws, which in my opinion are so poorly negated that it leaves doors open for these bonafide 'serial killers.'
NO MORE PUPPY FARMS. NO MORE FREE RIDES for those who dare treat these beautiful creatures so poorly. ARREST THEM ALL!

These types of videos should be shown on TV and there should be billboards everywhere till the soul-less morons who care nothing for living beings GET THE MESSAGE that they will get caught and be proscuted.
People should realize that everytime they 'BUY' a dog/cat it came from a puppy/cat mill.

Now,the laws should be changed and animals should NOT be considered 'property' like furniture.

Thank you for making this video and spreading the word about puppy mills. If anyone knows of a puppy mill, please report it to authorities.
