8 Dogs Rescued from Nebraska Puppy Mill

Uncategorized 6 Comments

Meet Kylie.  She is one of over 10,000 dogs that Hearts United for Animals has rescued from puppy mills.  The puppy mill that Kylie was rescued from was located right here in Nebraska, not far from Omaha.  She did not have a name.  She was only a number.  She did not ever have a bath or a haircut.  The mats on her face were so bad that by the time she was rescued she could not even see through all of the snarled fur.  She lived her entire life in a cage, her feet never touching grass, receiving no love, never getting to experience the simplest pleasures of being a dog.  Her only purpose was to churn out puppies to be sold to pet stores.  She has scars from c-sections and had horrible ear and mouth infections.

Kylie was rescued the day after Valentine’s Day.  When she arrived she cowered in a corner, afraid to be touched by humans.  After her first bath and grooming she became a new dog.  She danced with delight at how wonderful she felt.  She couldn’t believe the big new world in front of her that she could actually see for the first time in years!  She clung to her rescuers, showing her gratitude and adoring every moment of being loved and comforted.

Her friends the Elkhound puppies who were rescued with her are terribly afraid of humans.  At only 5 months old they don’t expect that people will be nice to them.  Mason pup can barely walk.  He hobbles along in pain as both of his back legs are very deformed.  His brother Lamar is a little better, but along with Mason will need expensive orthopedic surgery in order to lead a normal pain free life.  They will be given that chance because of Hearts United for Animals and our wonderful supporters.

Please remember Kylie and her friends when you see those cute puppies in the pet store.  Buying those cute little puppies keeps puppy mills in business and ensures that the parents of those pet store puppies will continue to suffer for years and years.  You have the power to stop puppy mills.  Please do not support stores that sell puppies.  Use your wallet to send them the message that no matter how cute those puppies are, the lack of care that their parents endure in the mass breeding facilities is not acceptable.

Please visit www.hua.org to learn more about puppy mills and to visit Kylie and her 400 friends at Hearts United for Animals who are available for adoption.  You can also make a donation to help Hearts United for Animals mission to shut down puppy mills and rescue and rehabilitate dogs like Kylie, Mason, Lamar and their friends.

    It is a heartwarming story that these animals are rescued from such a cruel disaster. There may be the cruelest people to hurt such gentle creatures but thank God there are also people that cares for them.

    Hi Sheryl, Yes they are doing GREAT! Much better than we had anticipated. They still need a follow up visit but we are hopeful that Mason will not need a 2nd surgery as we initially thought he might.

    I’m so glad to hear about Mason and Lamar – and of course the other dogs that have been rescued. Physically, dogs often bounce back amazingly fast. It’s heartwarming and kind of admirable too – you get the feeling we could do the same if only we didn’t think so much! Psychologically of course it can take longer to recover from bad treatment. But I’m sure all of these dogs will get the love and support that they need now :)
