Kicking Butt and Taking Puppies
Want to help save puppy mill dogs? Become a Placement Partner
During the past two years, The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) assisted local agencies with 24 puppy mill raids, resulting in the rescue of more than 5,000 dogs—puppies and their poor breed-exhausted mothers—from the hideous conditions found in these factory-style breeding operations.
The job could not have been completed without extensive, on-the-ground assistance from local shelters, especially with the placement of the animals after seizure. Removing large numbers of animals in a short period of time can be a challenge for local agencies to handle alone, and in these cases, The HSUS was ready and prepared to help. Likewise, The HSUS relies on similar collaborations with shelters and rescue groups to take in seized animals in order to rehabilitate and place them in loving homes.
