Puppy Mill-Dogs seized in GA.

Google "Dogs seized Webster Co GA".

The dogs, mostly Yorkie and Havanese breeds, are suffering from various medical conditions, many have heartworm and nearly all have matted fur, according to the Humane Society. The dogs range from 7 months to ten years of age.

Such horrible conditions. It's difficult to think these horrible puppy mills keep happening.

Heart wrenching. Only 40 of the 60 found were able to be moved to the animal shelter near Atlanta. The others were too weak to be moved and are being treated elsewhere. One was found deceased in the premises. I hope these dogs find the wonderful forever home that every dog should have.

I saw the pictures as well. I believe this "puppy mill" like so many of the others reported, was run by a person suffering with the mental illness OCD, or animal hoarding. No mill would have so many too old to breed, or that were all mixed breed rather than pure breed and mixed. An example of a possible Georgia puppy mill would be Shady Acres Kennel, visit their website for an eye opener.

Webster Co, Ga Sheriffs dept seized the dogs from puppy mill. Terrell Co animal control had to keep 20 dogs and 40 dogs were sent to Atlanta. I originally saw Facebook post from a worker that helped move. It's the worst case he's ever seen. Many of the dogs tested heart worm positive along with other issues. Below is some information. There was a also a similar case in northwest VA a couple years ago.

Today, Terrell County Animal Control helped to shut down a puppy mill in Webster County and the 61 dogs and puppies seized are in our care. It took almost all day to do intake and an initial assessment on all of the dogs.

We are very much in need of donations for the care of these dogs while they are in our care. They will all be cleaned up, assessed by the vet, receive basic vet care (and additional care as needed). We hope that soon they will be ready to go to rescues and at that point, we will begin reaching out to rescues. Any amount will help. For more information on giving donations, contact Terrell County Animal Control at (229) 995-4410.

We will post updates on the dogs as we are able to. Thank you.

The Atlanta Humane Society has info on their website and Facebook page. They are looking for donations and have a wish list for towels on Amazon. I did both. Hubby wants to adopt one of the rescues. He thinks Loki needs a brother or sister!

Some of the Havanese are at the Mansell campus (North of Atlanta) https://atlantahumane.org/adopt/dogs/mansell/. We put in a Pet Alert when they come available.
