500 dogs rescued from Texas puppy mill

More than 50 volunteers worked diligently through the holiday weekend and into the night at a temporary shelter in Fort Worth, Texas, preparing for the arrival of nearly 500 dogs rescued today from a Montague County puppy mill after a warrant was served by the Montague County Sheriff’s department. The animals will be cared for by the Humane Society of North Texas with the assistance of volunteers with United Animal Nations's Emergency Animal Rescue Service.

Read a news article about the seizure.

  6. Thank you EARS and HSNT! As the only rescuer in Montague County I am praying this bust will scare some sense into all the little BYB's around here. Was a pleasure meeting so many of you!

  11. Is there anyone working with the Texas Puppy Mill rescue that we can send pictures of our stolen dogs to? There are numerous dogs, including mine, that have been stolen recently that may have ended up in a puppy mill in North Texas or Oklahoma. Our Jack Russell, Zoey, was pregnant when she was stolen from us in April. She was due May 15th. I refuse to give up on her!

  13. I really want to know what happened to those disgusting, soulless people. It is really important for us, animal advocates, to know that those monsters were punished, if possible severely, and that there is justice in this world. This information needs to be made public, as it may have a dissuading effect on wannabe puppy-mill people. Thanks,

    I work with Dr.Cynthia Jones and volunteered to help groom these amazing dogs. ALL of the dogs are so loving ,sooo sweet .you can't imagine the horrors they have been through and only to come thought it with the spirt of a champion.Some did not make it ,but the ones that did are incedible.The volunteers work non-stop.Where they are being kept now is clean cool and safe.We will know more Friday and hopfully the Judge will make an example of these monsters and make them pay for the suffering they have caused.Please People DO NOT buy puppies at pet stores, flea markets, or so called breeders! Ckeck your local animal shelter and rescues .You can help get rid of this problem.
