In Arkansas a puppy mill was shut down, so the ASPCA has stepped in and is providing veterinary care, diagnosing, treatment and playtime for all the
refugees puppy dogs.
Many of dogs were neglected and had skin problems, fleas and other medical conditions. Several dogs were even found dead so a forensics team will be performing necropsies.
The medical director of the ASPCA's Field Investigations and Response team, said:
Canada has a problem with puppy mills.
It’s well known to animal rights activists that there are huge breeding operations that flood the market with animals just to make a profit.
Leaving animals in the shelter with the short end of the stick.
Well not anymore!

In Quebec, Canada, the Animal Welfare Authorities shut down a puppy mill long known to be a sub-par facility.
The reason for being shut down was that the dogs’ most basic needs were not being met. So sad!
With the mill shut down, there are now 500+ dogs up for adoption, under the care of the Humane Society International of Canada.
Seeing as how this is one of the largest rescues in the province’s history, they need help.
To help provide food bowls, toys and bedding for those poor doggies, U can donate to the Humane Society HERE.
Though the dogs have been rescued from the mill, the fight isn't over until every pup has a home.
