Another Puppy Mill Bust!

Ugh!! I volunteer for my local animal shelter and recieved an e-mail yesterday saying that they were seizing 20 poms from a local "breeder" and needed some help cleaning them up.
I was talking with one of the shelter staff last night and she gave me the scoop on what's going on and said that they will need me soon...now I just have to sit and wait for news.
The lady running the mill is notorious in our county and has had her animals taken in the past..she's had past charges pressed against her and just doesn't seem to be getting the point!
There are A LOT more dogs that the shelter is planning on seizing in the very near future but they were only able to take the sickest yesterday.
Here's a news link..not much info though.

Geez Eva, yet another sickening story. I hope those poms get placed in loving homes. That woman was breeding as her sole sorce of income-very sad for those poor dogs. Good luck with your foster.
Just a thought-have you noticed the number of celebrities who buy from these mills? I was looking at one website that I knew was a mill, and there they have the testimonials from celebrities who bought a dog from them. They should know better.

Reading that made me sick. It's her only source of income. Maybe someone should force her to be a breeder, locked up in deplorable conditions and forced to have puppies (er, babies) time after time after time. Did it ever occur to her to get a job!!!

That's sick. Yep Geri, she needs to go find a job! No one can properly care for 160 dogs. It's cruel and inhumane.

I am glad you are able to help and sickened by the treatment of these poor dogs. I was interested to note that you live in Washington state. I am in the Renton area. Linda

Hi Linda!
There are quite a few of us on the forum that are from Wa
I'm at the southern end of the state..south of Olympia.
I've seen several news stories about the puppymill in the past couple of days but I'm still waiting for news from the shelter. Luckily we're keeping busy with the foster kitties..wiping noses and cleaning litterboxes is a neverending job

These people should be put in Jail. There is no excuse for this. So glad you are able to help Eva.

Blessings, Luna and the girls

I too noticed your location. I am in the pacific northwest......quite north....very near the border.

It seems just yesterday the puppy mill in Mt. Vernon was raided. I just can not believe how many places like this there are in the world. How do you walk past those dogs everyday and not stop what you are doing and find them good homes? I mean, how do people stomach this cruelty?

I'm not quite sure how these people sleep at night or look at themselves in the mirror! I agree everyone of them should be put in jail. It's so wonderful that you can help!
