On March 8 2012, another backyard breeder / puppy miller voluntarily surrendered some of their dogs. I guess guilt or the sudden appearance of a conscience made them do it..
These are the lucky few who were freed. More will surely follow.. but..most never will be..
These are the parents of that cute little puppy or dog that you bought at the pet store or on line..
I have no more words for this..(see baby steps blog post)..the photographs speak for themselves..
Huddled together in the back of the crate, too afraid to come out to the welcoming arms that await them.. They have had little positive human contact..
Notice they have all been shaved (by the miller). They were most likely matted and covered in feces.
These pups had their freedom purchased by Rosie Animal Adoption ; they were not surrendered (they were to be sold by the miller, either on line or to a pet store). They are fortunate to have avoided the same lives as their parents..
So much terror in these eyes..an attempt at being comforted by a volunteer..This dog wouldn’t come out of the crate even when it was turned upside down..
Tail and paws stained yellow from having to sit in their own urine. All of their lives..so far..
Again, I have no words. Only sadness.
And these ones were lucky.. they are now loved.. and free..
Please don’t buy a dog or puppy from a pet store or on line. I hope you see why..
These dogs were divided up amongst several rescue organizations who cared for them at great cost.
One of these is Rosie Animal Adoption. Please visit their site and consider making a donation for the continued care of rescued dogs. Thank-You!
