Save-A-Pet Teams Up to Save Abandoned
Adult Dogs Used in Puppy Mills

If you're thinking about expanding your family, how about adopting a pet? Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue and Adoption Center, Inc. teamed up with Best Friends Animal Society to rescue 20 adult dogs that were used to breeding purposes and then abandoned by their owners. The staff at Save-A-Pet are nursing the dogs back to health and hope to have them ready for adoption by Thursday.

Pictured (left to right): Erica Moldashal with "Marnie," a Pomeranian; Pam Rice with "Morris," a poodle; Kathy Deon with "Merlot," a French bulldog; Dori Scofield with "Matty," a Doxie mix; Sue Manolakis with "Mya," a Boston Terrier; Janine Sinclair with "Matilda," a Havenese mix; and Lynne Schoepfer with "Max," a Chihuahua.

These dogs came from "puppy mills" in the southwestern and Midwestern regions of the United States where they were used to breed puppies that were later sold to retail pet stores. When these animals became too old or unproductive, they were deemed useless by the puppy mills' owners.

As a result of undergoing the deplorable living and breeding conditions at these puppy mills, these dogs lack basic medical care. Local veterinarians, along with Save-A-Pet staff and volunteers, will nurse the dogs back to health. Once they are all fully vetted, including spaying and neutering, they will be available for adoption.

Save-A-Pet is seeking donations to help pay for the medical costs of these animals. To make a donation or to volunteer, please call Save-A-Pet at (631) 473-6333 or visit
