Humane Society of Missouri Granted Custody of Rescued Animals

It seems that every time I turn around, animal rescue organizations have raided yet another puppy mill. Nearly 200 dogs and cats were rescued last month in Seneca, Missouri, after being found living in a substandard dog breeding facility. The animals were transferred to the Humane Society of Missouri in St. Louis for triage and care. Yesterday, the Humane Society was granted custody of the animals and will now be able to move forward and prepare them for adoption. Most of the animals are small breed dogs—Chihuahuas, Boston Terriers, Miniature Pinchers, Lhasa Apsos, Shar-Peis, Pugs, Pekingese, Pomeranians, Yorkies and Westies. Check out the Humane Society's website for the complete story and updates. As always, the Humane Society (and any other rescue organization) can use donations of blankets, towels, newspaper, etc. Ellen
