A New Year Means a New Chance at Life for Puppy Mill Rescues

Resize Puppy MillWhile many of us were getting dressed to go out, cooking up some appetizers or making a drink, rescue workers from the Newnan-Coweta Humane Society of Newnan, Georgia were saving the lives of 30 dogs and puppies and one cat from a puppy mill near the Alabama-Georgia border.

The animals were actually surrendered by the owner of the puppy mill, who called in for help with finding homes for the mixed breed puppies. However, once the seven volunteers began working with the breeder, they were able to convince him to surrender all of the animals – a huge success.


According to an article on the Times-Herald.com, the Newnan-Coweta Humane Society came to an arrangement with the breeder that his name be kept confidential in exchange for his cooperation. The dogs are currently undergoing physical exams and are receiving veterinarian care for a variety of issues, including dental problems, ear mites, intestinal issues and all will be groomed, spayed or neutered before they’re available for adoption.

Aside from the minor medical issues mentioned above, there is nothing life-threatening or seriously wrong with any of the animals and they should all be able to be placed up for adoption.
