Save-A-Pet Helps Coordinate Rescue of 15 Adult Dogs from Puppy Mill 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 received 15 adult dogs through the “Pup My Ride” program on October 18. These dogs came from “puppy mills” in the Midwest, where they were used to breed puppies that were later sold to retail pet stores. When these animals become too old or unproductive, they are deemed useless by puppy mills.

As a result of undergoing the deplorable living and breeding conditions at these puppy mills, these dogs lack basic medical care. Local veterinarians, 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.
