No animal breeder should ever let their pets experience living in horrible conditions that could affect their overall wellbeing. However, one person made not one, not two, but over 700 dogs live in filthy kennels in his property.
Multiple animal rescue organizations joined forces to save more than 700 dogs and puppies from horrible living conditions at one puppy mill in Atlanta. Various rescue teams found the dogs covered in their own feces and urine in their cages.
Aside from the canines sleeping in their own excrements, the majority of the dogs had untreated wounds and required urgent medical attention. The sight alone broke the rescuers’ hearts because the dogs did not deserve to live in such circumstances.
The Atlanta Humane Society, Releash Atlanta, The Humane Society of Valdosta Lowndes County, and the USA Rescue all worked hard for almost a week to rescue all dogs. Many rescue groups posted on their Facebook pages and asked their followers for donations that will help the nearly a thousand dogs that they worked so hard to rescue.
The Atlanta Humane Society shared that they found the dogs living in one little crate piled on top of another. The only thing that the dogs experienced was extreme neglect because not only they were severely matted, they were confined in tight spaces.
The dogs were never held nor walked by their owner, and they had difficulty in adjusting to a cleaner and more comfortable environment. One dog who was so used to sleeping by standing up, could not believe that he now has his own bed.
Despite extreme physical, emotional, and psychological trauma, the dogs showed no signs of aggression and even licked the hands of their groomers as a thank you. After spending some time healing, the dogs recovered and are now put up for adoption.
