Breaking News: ASPCA Raiding Large Arkansas Puppy Mill Right Now

Monday, November 7, 2011 - 12:30pm

Puppy mill dogs, like this one in Holly Springs, MO, often suffer from skin diseases and other conditions caused by serious neglect.

The ASPCA Field Investigations and Response Team is in Hot Springs, Arkansas, today, rescuing more than 100 small dogs—including Dachshunds, West Highland white terriers, Boston terriers and Chihuahuas—from a puppy mill. Our responders, led by ASPCA Director of Investigations Kathryn Destreza, are acting at the behest of the Garland County Sheriff’s Department and are working with the International Fund for Animal Welfare, PetSmart Charities, Inc., and the Garland County Humane Society.
