Happy ending for Texas puppy mill dogs

Submitted by EARS Field Leader Norma Rodriguez of Bellflower, California

As a first-time Field Leader I apologize for not creating a daily blog. My pitiful excuse is that by the time we returned to the hotel, had a shower and some dinner, it was 11 p.m. By then I was too physically and emotionally wrung out to string two words together.

Part of the EARS team in Texas

It's hard to get any EARS volunteer to stand still for a minute, let alone to get a group of them to stand still for a minute all at the same time!

EARS volunteer Mike Brodersen managed to do just that, and we're glad he did. He snapped this rare group photo at the end of the day, before anyone had a chance to shower or clean up. Despite their exhaustion and the oppressive heat, the volunteers still feel like saying that they're number one!

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.
