Thanks to a generous sponsor, Road Dogs Rescue was recently able to get 12 dogs from a Puppy Mill auction in the Mid West. This is where the Puppy Mill breeders sell their 'product' to other Puppy Millers and Pet Stores - and buy more. The goal was to pay as little as possible so as not to line their pockets, but to save some lives and have these dogs put real faces to the horrible industry. By helping to raise awareness on what really goes on behind Pet Stores and online puppies, we hope to be able to inspire people and legislators to act to stop them.
Bea, our main pic, was the reason I wanted to save as many as we could. I had seen her photo in the online catalogue for a previous auction and she broke my heart. Her xrays showed she had the worst hip dysplasia the vet had seen, and yet she would have been bred and bred. We got her and another 'proven breeder' from an auction a couple of weeks before.
Now with these 14 dogs safe, we have a lot of medical to catch up on. These guys have not seen a vet in a while. I honestly don't know how much it will all cost but with 14 dogs, it won't be cheap. Of course they are all riddled with parasites, and we have to spay and neuter everyone. Bea and Audrey (the smiling English girl from the vid) both need entropion surgery, and Millie needs surgery for luxating patella.
Please help us get these guys the care they need. They deserve it!
We will keep everyone updated on their progress.
