More than 100 dogs are getting a second chance at a brighter future, and this is all thanks to several organizations who are pulling their resources together to make sure they achieve this end. This was through the Bissell Pet Foundation’s initiative, which teamed up with several rescue groups so they can save many dogs from a puppy mill in Louisiana. And one of the groups that stepped forward is the Harbor Humane Society from West Olive, Michigan. They were instrumental in transporting 56 rescued canines to various Michigan shelters, where 20 of those four-legged creatures came under their care until they got adopted.
Harbor Humane took to Facebook to write about this life-saving mission. They quoted Cathy Bissell of the Bissell Pet Foundation to explain why they willingly participated in the mission. They said that these dogs spent their lives producing puppies for profit; they also had a history of not being groomed, which made them visually impaired. They also lived their lives dwelling in cramped spaces without experiencing the joys of being loved and being a dog.
But now, thanks to their fantastic work, these dogs are finally set free.
And now that these rescued dogs are under the kind hands of Harbor Humane, they are bent on matching these 20 darlings with their perfect future families. However, before they do that, they treated their numerous health conditions. In an interview for ABC News 13, Megan Winters from Harbor Humane said that the dogs appeared to lack medical attention when they arrived under their care. Many of them required dental cleanings, their teeth removed, and a number of them had ear infections.
However, their conditions drastically changed after they received some much-needed TLC from Harbor Humane. They were immediately made available for adoption, and some of them have already found their permanent homes. According to Winters, the puppy mill rescues who are still up for adoption would do perfectly with patient owners who live in calm homes, as plenty of them are still skittish after they spent some time living in cramped cages.
Harbor Humane hopes that their recent initiatives would inspire animal lovers to adopt instead of purchasing their next pets. Anyone interested in adopting Harbor Humane’s available pack can visit their website for more information.
