Rescued Puppy Mill Dogs Get a Second Chance

Rescued Puppy Mill Dogs Get a Second Chance
Spread The Viralist

In July 2014, the Cherokee County Animal Shelter and Cherokee County Marshal’s Office busted a huge puppy mill that had been operating in Georgia since the 1980s. All dogs and puppies were rescued from the horrific facility and were cared for at the Cherokee County Animal Shelter until they were ready for rescue or adoption. Many pregnant females gave birth shortly after the bust, and raising the final total of rescued dogs even further. The owners of the puppy mill plead guilty to 25 charges of animal cruelty and were sentenced to 25 consecutive years of probation.

This video takes you through the puppy mill bust firsthand, then shows you the day the dogs were adopted, and a very special reunion that took place one year later. Don’t support this cruelty by buying puppies from flea markets or pet stores, or online. Instead, check out your local shelter or rescue group, or find a truly responsible breeder.

Say no to puppy mills!

Puppy Mill Awareness Day is September 27, 2015.

    I’m unable to comment about poor puppy in sewer! He can’t go in there by himself, some animal abuser dumped and abandoned him leaving him to die there!

  2. I am proud to be Nepali because we love dogs and celebrate dogs festival by worshipping dog's every year during Diwali festival but we don't kill or eat we respect dog's we made fencing inside our hearts through love. Why don't people of earth celebrate dog's or animals day once a year?
