Puppy mills are horrible places. Many of them eventually get shut down due to the abuses present. But there was one in Georgia that had actually been operating since the 1980’s. It was finally shut down last year. Rescued were 525 dogs! But many of the dogs were pregnant, making the actual number much higher. Here we see Victoria Stilwell, a dog trainer, helping rescuers with seizing the puppy mill dogs. Six weeks later they would be put up for adoption and it was quite the event. Huge turnout and every single dog ended up becoming adopted!
What happened to the puppy mill owners? They pled guilty to 25 charges of animal cruelty and are now on probation for 25 consecutive years. Remember not to support the puppy mill system. Malls and pet stores often get their dogs from puppy mills. Thankfully all these dogs were rescued and all were adopted! And thankfully this mill was finally shut down.
