How wonderful of these vets to do this for these dogs. It is so heartwarming to see poeple care about animals. It unspeakable the way dogs are treated int these horrible puppy mills. I long for the day that puppy mills are closed forever.

Kudos to the all the vets who participated in giving the desperate care these puppies needed. These puppy mills have got to stop immediately. People should recognize this and adopt from the shelters. In doing so, they can adopt a puppy who is in great physical condition, and possibly find a thorobred if that's what they're looking for. Shelters have all kinds of different breeds of dogs, not just muts.

One sad part of trying to make these dogs adoptable is that most will probably have chronic health problems. I just got email from a gal who rescued a siberian from a puppy mill. She says it has a horrible skin condition and her credit card is always maxed out. I love dogs but I could never afford to rescue a puppy mill dog knowing it might come with a lifetime of vet bills beyond my means to pay.
