This is such a heartwarming story. Victoria Stilwell, a dog trainer and dog hero led an operation that ended up busting a giant puppy mill that’s been in business since the 1980s.
Did you know that a lot of the store-bought puppies come from these types of mills? Many of them have no regulation, no supervision, and are only concerned with profit.
The puppies are held in tiny cages, under harsh conditions. They generally have no regular veterinary care, never get to leave their cage, and have no human touch.
They’re crowded, they’re not sanitary, and dangerous to the health of the puppies. Many are poorly inbred, which leaves them prone to genetic conditions and poor health.
Many of these puppies are ripped away from their moms at birth. They’ve never known any kind of love or care. They haven’t learned how to socialize, and end up with severe anxiety and fearfulness.
Victoria is the host of the television show, “It’s Me Or The Dog.” She enlisted the help of the Cherokee County Animal Shelter and Marshal’s Office.
They went in and shut down the puppy mill, saving about 526 dogs, all the way from recent newborns to slightly older ones. Every single dog was removed from their disgusting situation and brought back to the animal shelter for love and care.
