Mississippi Puppy Mill Rescues Arrive at the ASPCA

On February 7, while sports fans across the country gathered in front of the tube for the big game, the ASPCA was celebrating a victory of our own. That night, the ASPCA Adoption Center in Manhattan welcomed 34 dogs who were recently rescued from a puppy mill in Holly Springs, MS. The small-breed dogs received VIP treatment courtesy of Pet Airways, an airline that transports pets exclusively.
Three days earlier, members of the ASPCA Field Investigations and Response Team, at the request of the Marshall County Prosecutor’s Office, led the effort to rescue a total of 96 animals from abusive lives in overcrowded conditions at the notorious mill.

“We are glad to have been part of another major, collaborative effort to rescue dogs from such deplorable conditions,” says Gail Buchwald, Senior Vice President, ASPCA Adoptions Center. “We look forward to finding these pups forever homes.”

We saved 96 animals in Mississippi last week, but thousands more still need our help—our work is far from over. Your support makes it possible for us to continue to rescue dogs from horrendous conditions such as those found in Holly Springs.
