Hope was restored to approximately 120 dogs and four parrots this week, as American Dog Rescue Foundation and Animal Rescue Corps joined forces to raid the puppy mill that had caused these animals so much pain. Moms and babies of assorted small breeds were kept in living deplorable conditions, including being stuck in the heat in tiny, filthy cages without proper access to food and water.
The animals won’t have to suffer any longer, and will have their opportunity to be adopted to loving families.
“I’m always proud to team up with Scotlund Haisley and Animal Rescue Corps to support the great work the do,” ADR founder Arthur E. Benjamin said. “It’s particularly gratifying when we can contribute to shutting down a shameful operation such as this one. We won’t rest until puppy mills are shut down nationwide.”

“Animals have been suffering from various untreated illnesses on this property for an extended period of time. The conditions were very typical of a puppy mill where animals are treated as nothing more than breeding machines,” ARC President Scotlund Haisley said. “A lot of suffering ended here today and I commend Page County Sheriff’s Office, Animal Control, and County Attorney for acting quickly and working with Animal Rescue Corps to save these lives.”
