RESCUE - NOT HAVS, BUT

North Shore Animal League is a no-kill shelter on Lobg Island. They claim to be the largest in the world, and with some experience, I know the amount of puppies, dogs, cats and kittens that get adopted there.

They just rescued over 100 dogs (from almost 1000) from a West VA puppy mill. Most of the dogs are Dachshunds, with lots of other types also. My friend has 3 Dachsies and went there today to get one for her Mom. She called me up crying because of all the dogs. She didn't call me back yet, so I will have to wait until tomorrow to find out what happened.

Oh how frustrating to see so many mills still operating. Why is it so hard to raise awareness and have everyone question buying pups in a pet shop?

It's bound to be very difficult for any animal lover to see so many animals in those conditions. 100 out of 1000. Imagine that many in ONE mill !! Unreal.
