Every dog deserves a loving home. But not all dogs are fortunate enough. A lot of them are placed in cramped and filthy puppy mills where they are forced to breed and bear litters upon litters, only to get sold for a huge profit. A puppy mill in Georgia was raided, and each of the rescued dogs was placed into loving homes. Their reunion a year later will bring tears to your eyes.
The horrible conditions of puppy mills
Cops raided a notorious puppy mill in Georgia and rescued more than 500 dogs. These dogs have been living in inhumane conditions. They live in tiny dirty cages and forced to bear puppies a couple of times a year, gravely degrading their physical and mental being.
Fortunately, there’s a silver lining for over 500 dogs in this puppy mill. In 2014, the authorities of Cherokee Country Animal Shelter and pet behavior expert Victoria Stilwell raided the said puppy mill and rescued the dogs.
Although the conditions of the dogs had been heartbreaking to see, they’re now given a second chance at life.
Forever homes for the rescued dogs
The rescued dogs were first taken to a local shelter where they received medication and facilities for recovery. In a span of six weeks, the rescued dogs showed tremendous improvements, especially with their health.
The next step was to find them loving families and forever homes. Hundreds of people showed interest in adoption and made a beeline to the shelter. Some of them even had to set up camp the night before.
One by one, the dogs were taken into their new families. The joy in their eyes was undeniable.
One year later, the rescued dogs and the human parents gathered together for a reunion. It was a great sight to see the dogs in their parents’ loving arms. It reminds us that every dog deserves love and kindness.
Watch the incredible rescue and reunion story below.
Thanks to Victoria Stilwell.
