AR Puppy Mill Dogs Hit the Road to Find Homes

Tuesday, December 20, 2011 - 4:15pm

On November 7, ASPCA responders helped remove 175 small dogs from an Arkansas puppy mill. These sweet and frightened dogs were suffering from various diseases and ailments, but after six weeks under our care, they’re feeling much better...and now the dogs—and some puppies born after the raid—are ready to find their forever homes!

We worked with our Shelter Partners to find space for these brave little pups, and organizations in Arkansas, New York, New Jersey and Washington, D.C., stepped up to the plate. Today, we packed up our Animal Transport Trailers and hit the road.

Here’s where these brave little pups are being welcomed with open arms:

  • Twenty dogs stayed close to home with Arkansas’ Stop Animal Cruelty in Hot Spring County.
  • St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center in Madison, New Jersey, is taking in 30 dogs.
  • Animal Welfare Association in Voorhees, New Jersey, has accepted 20 dogs.
  • Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA in Hudson, New York, will find homes for 10 dogs.
  • And Washington Animal Rescue League in Washington, D.C., will welcome 100 dogs!!

A huge thank you to our Shelter Partners for giving these former victims of a cruelty a second chance at finding love and companionship.
