Vanderburgh Humane Society Takes In Dogs Rescued From Puppy Mill

The Vanderburgh Human Society (VHS) says it's one of several animal shelters taking in a few dogs that were recently removed from a large puppy mill in Kentucky.

VHS was one of several animal shelters to take in some of the rescued dogs through a partnership with the Kentucky Humane Society and BISSELL Pet Foundation.

According to the Kentucky Humane Society, more than 100 huskies and other large breed dogs were rescued in the operation.

The humane society says that the dogs were being kept outside, many on chains, in unsanitary conditions on a single property. Many of the animals only had dirty water to drink and broken dog houses to rest in, according to the humane society.

"It was heartbreaking to see these poor dogs living outside in the elements, chained with only a few feet to run, hungry, with matted fur and suffering from untreated illness and wounds," Kentucky Humane Society said. "But now they are safe and getting the care they desperately need and deserve."

"We’re proud to partner with Kentucky Humane Society and BISSELL Pet Foundation to take in a few of the over 100 dogs removed from this puppy mill in Kentucky," VHS said. "The dogs we picked up from Louisville last night are matted and dirty, but healthy. They’re warm and safe with us, and their futures are so bright!"

The Kentucky Humane Society says the dogs are now being evaluated and receiving any medical care they may need. You can see more photos of the dogs on the Kentucky Humane Society Facebook page.
