Save-A-Pet Helps Coordinate Rescue of 20 Adult Dogs from Puppy Mills through “Pup My Ride” Program


In coordination with Best Friends Animal Society, an animal welfare organization based in Utah, Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue and Adoption Center, Inc. received 20 adult dogs through the “Pup My Ride” program. 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 were all fully vetted, including spaying and neutering, they were 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.
