How disgusting! I am glad the dogs were saved. But all those pregnant dogs??? GEEZ! Let's try to help in any way we can here people. Nothing is gonna change unless we keep getting involved somehow...donating money or blankets & food. I am going to donate money as I live too far away in Texas to help take in or foster any of them...wish I could. This has to stop!!!

I just received an email for Pasado's Safe Haven, in Wash., asking for donations of all kinds.

These operations simply must be put out of business.
You always hear things like there's not enough money to police these 'business', but now how much is it costing in time, manpower, resources, and money to deal with it?

WHY NOT ABORTION????? Come on, 1500 puppies, when millions are put down every day, and millions of others suffer on the streets and in the fields? ABORTION, please!

Where are the inspection papers for this breeder? Actually, I think there are only 70 inspectors to take care of all 50 states.
We need to demand our Senators to ban puppy mills, breeding dogs for profit is not working. If it was, there would not be all these raids....
I just found out that unless you make a comment some of the government agencies do not count your vote on petitions. They count all the petitions with no comment as one. If I have signed any of your petitions,please get back with me. I will do it right, I want my vote to count. Sometimes I did not have the time to make a comment.

As someone with a degree in veterinary technology I agree many of these females should be spayed while pregnant. Eliminate the pregnancies that are not due to give birth in the next week. The cost will high, but lower than taking care of all those puppies, many of which may have congenital defects or complications due to mothers not being taken care of properly.

I think all the dogs are to far along to have abortions. Besides no kill shelters are rescues, not killers......
Write to your legislature, senators, governor,in your state, you can demand change. Send a link to all these raids to them, make them understand the problem.

I agree that if a vet can be found then some of these dogs should be spayed whilst pregnant. Better now than the puppies having to be euthanised after being born. I used to care for a feral colony of cats and my vet would spay pregnant females (as and when I could catch them). He told me it was preferable as not only did it restrict the number of cats but the females recovered quickly - which they did - and didn't have to undergo the trauma of giving birth.

Better go w/ the spay decision to avoid having many of these end up in abusive situations or taking the place of other dogs that will have to be euthanised instead.
How sad and miserable people can be who use animals for profit!

Head of States on this planet, how I wish you could observe and hear my outcry for laws to change drastically. Please stop being ignorant towards animal welfare. It can not go on this way, it is getting out of hand and the abuse is on the increase. We must now target all the Presidents directly and show them photos of animal abuse. Maybe this is a wake up call.

I did a follow up on this story by talking with the Sheriff's office of Skagit county, who informed me the information in this article is erroneous. The total amount of dogs rescued were 443 (including Snohomish county), and the puppy projection was also exaggerated-most were not pregnant (don't forget the males). Today's (27 January) Skagit Valley Herald ( local newspaper for both counties) has written an article on this incident. Skagit county authorities only recognized S.P.O.T.(Stopping Pet Overpopulation Together) Society as its legitimate donation center. I recognized red flags in this article like misspelled words, poor grammar and examples like using WASH instead of WA, etc. Stories like this one can pull on the heart strings of caring and compassionate persons like most of us here at CARE. Remember, anyone can write an article on the internet. Please forward your donations to a recognized 501c (non-profit) organization: http://www.spotsociety.org/

No kill shelters aren't as benign as they seem. They only accept animals they 'deem' adoptable and send the others off to shelters to be killed. And aborting puppies in such cases, with so many is necessary. They will end up being euthanized after birth anyway. We had our dog have an abortion as her first pregnancy was very hard on her, and in those days spaying and neutering was unknown. We lost a trip to Disneyland, but better than having her struggle and puppies going to dubious homes. Yes she was in a fenced yard, but she dug out. :(
This breeder needs to do jail time and obviously no job enslaving dogs to make money off of their offspring. I dislike breeders of any kind. It is forced sex and just plain abuse.

It looks like the rescues have a good cash crop this year.

I agree that the dogs that are preg and can be spayed now should be, it is cruel to allow 1500 puppies to be born that will have to be found homes along with 500 mothers. It is more humane to not let the puppies be born. what the devil were the puppy mill breeders going to do with 1500 puppies? they would not be able to sell all those dogs. what disgusting monsters.

The tragedy is that you can say that without knowing how bad that sounds, JulieAnn. You love them so much you think they should not exist and their species should be sterilized and allowed to die out.

Most of those puppies are destined to be put down soon after they are born. Sad, really.

Oh, please, Thomas ! I hardly think their species will die out.

Ignore Thomas. He's being a troll. He probably thinks hundreds of suffering dogs and puppies is amusing.

Where is the next generation of puppies going to come from? Also, these attacks on puppy mills violate human rights.

Unbelievable numbers, 1500 dogs!! Wow, it really is shocking to realize how huge the puppy mill industry is. And that just being from 2-3 raids. Thanks for sharing, Lucky. Noted.

The group who have been allowed to do this should be shut down and have to pay for all vet and boarding costs! They should never be allowed any more pets. What is really sick is how long the law takes to help. There is even talk of giving back their dogs! The breeders betrayed the buyers and the dogs by not giving them healthy, clean care. The people involved knew they were doing wrong by hiding the dogs too. There were even dogs hidden in the attic. Time for their greed to cost them plenty!

When hiding animals from hostile, illegal, and dishonest attacks, any place is valid, Jimel.

What a crock. People have been swindled into believing that they should hate breeders because they love dogs. What are they thinking?

Helen, you have GOT to be kidding.
