Puppy Mill Dogs Finally got their Freedom

After years of horrible neglect and a dramatic rescue effort, almost all of the 121 dogs seized from a suspected Warren County Puppy Mill have their freedom.

The Animal Rescue Corps, a 501©3 nonprofit animal protection organization in Tennessee, participated in the seizure of 121 dogs and five birds with the Warren County District Attorney’s office on March 29th. This was after weeks of investigation undercover. Upon entering the puppy mill everyone’s worst fears were coming true. These dogs were living in the most horrible conditions, displaying skin infections and eye infection that are common in puppy mills and even dead, decaying dogs among the living ones. These dogs were severely malnourished and dehydrated. The court awarded Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) custody of 117 of the dogs on April 5th so they can get them ready for adoption.

A relative of the man who operated the puppy mill came to visit, saw the conditions the dogs were living in and called authorities, Marion County Humane Society leader Caroline Wedding said. The owner of the dogs is at a psychiatric hospital in Shreveport, Wedding said. He could face criminal charges over the neglected animals. Officials said the owner, a 64-year-old man whose name has not been released, has been away from the property since last month.

Now, all of the dogs were taken to the Tennessee State Fairgrounds, where a make shift shelter was created. They are being treated, vaccinated, fed, taking care of and most important thing provided love that had never know it before.
