Meet Billy: A Touching Puppy Mill Rescue Video

The Humane Society of the United States has put together an absolutely touching and wonderful video documenting the rescue of a breeding dog named “Billy” from a puppy mill in North Carolina.

“He had been locked in that cage for so long, the bars had rusted shutóbut his life changed when his rescuer, Adam, pried the bars open and gave him a second chance,” the organization says.

Bill’s story is part of the HSUS’s “Be a Hero” holiday campaign, with a goal of raising $1.5M to help other animals like Billy escape the horrors of puppy mills. Check out his video below –†and jump here to contribute!

What a cutie. So glad at least Billy has a happy home. There are so many other sweet pups out there who deserve the same.

Aww! But this poor baby can find happiness now with a caring daddy. It's so rewarding to see the neglected find loving homes. :)
