Thanks to a call into the puppy mill tip line for the Humane Society of Arkansas, 295 puppies were rescued from what was described as a horrific living situation.  For some of the rescue workers, it was one of the worst they’ve ever seen.  However, they are grateful that they were able to get the dogs out of harm’s way.

Some of the dogs removed from the property were suffering from untreated medical conditions.  The property owner was charged with animal cruelty, and after the investigation into the person is finished, they may face even more charges.

Now that the dogs have been moved to safety, the long and sometimes difficult process of evaluating all of the dogs can begin.  The Humane Society needed help with the massive load of puppies, so they used what they call the Humane Society Emergency Placement Partners network.

The Great Plains SPCA in Independence, Missouri stepped up to take 51 of the puppies in.  They take care of feeding, housing and any medical treatment they’ll need.  Of course after all of that is taken care of and the dogs are healthy enough, the adoption process will begin, and hopefully many if not all of the dogs will be adopted out to the loving forever home that they deserve so much.

  1. Wonder if anyone can get these puppies up on petfinder? I know it’s really hard for a humane society to load stuff up there, but this is definitely a desperate time!

  2. I HATE HUMAN !!!!!! Cruel !!!!!! What in the world is going on with us???? Bad to animals , not respecting and totally destroying the earth !!!!! I am so glad I will not be part of this world in 50 years or so….Shame on us !!!

  3. We adopted one of these rescued puppies. He was extremely malnourished, massive ear infections in both ears that resulted in slight hearing loss, and couldn’t eat very well because his adult teeth had come in but we not able to push out his baby teeth resulting in teeth in every direction that poked him trying to eat.

    He is now a loving healthy adult. He has learned to play, trust, and love. I love this little guy so much but do not know the name of the person who horribly mistreated him. Do any one there know?
