Puppy Mill Dogs Will Be Available For Adoption Soon: Atlanta Humane Society

Dogs who previously existed in squalid conditions at a Mississippi puppy mill, will soon have a new lease on life, reported the Atlanta Humane Society on Facebook on Sunday.

According to the Humane Society, a total of 30 dogs will be available for adoption at some point in the next 7 to 10 days. The dogs include multiple breeds, including Italian Greyhounds, Shih Tzus, Yorkies, Poodles and more. The dogs are currently being allowed time to recover from their difficult ordeal and they are receiving much needed veterinary care.

The dogs came from breeding operations discovered in Alcorn County, Mississippi last Wednesday. The dogs were said to be living in deplorable conditions; rabbit cages, stacked on top of each other, were holding many of the dogs. Cages were described as being full of feces, urine and countless maggots.

According to 11 Alive News, Dr. Gloria Dorsey, DVM and Vice President of Medical Services at the Atlanta Humane Society stated:

Following the spay and neuter surgical procedures, it will take some time to address all the needs of the animals and make sure they are properly vetted,

"Beyond surgery, it's about giving these animals proper care and giving them a little time to decompress. We need to help some gain weight and since some were suffering from tooth decay, they will need tooth extractions. So our biggest priority is getting these animals healthy."

The Humane Society intends to notify their Facebook followers when the dogs in their care will be available for adoption; the adoptions will be first come, first served. Potential adopters will be screened and must be approved.
