Today UAN volunteers began yet another effort to give rescued puppy mill dogs the care, attention and affection they have never experienced before.

Working with The Humane Society of the United States and several other organizations, UAN has deployed 10 volunteers to Bloomington, Indiana, where approximately 100 dogs were removed from a puppy mill today. The small-breed dogs — mostly Maltese, Shih Tzus and poodles — were found living inside small wire cages and runs inside a dirty mobile home. Some dogs were denied proper veterinary care and socialization as is typical in puppy mills.
Please read our press release for more details. We will post updated and photos to this Emergency Response Journal as they are available.
