Puppy Mill Rescue Stories And What YOU can Do To Help

The Humane Society

On January 22nd, 2015, The Washington County Sheriff’s Office and the Humane Society of Missouri Animal Cruelty Task Force rescued 55 neglected and undernourished Jack Russell terriers from a property in Washington County.

Authorities confirmed there was no veterinary care, nor food or water available to the dogs, and were witnessed living in their own feces and urine. The owners of the property do not have a breeders license.

All of the dogs have been removed and were examined and treated by veterinarians for the Humane Society, and were put for adoption after receiving the necessary medical care and rehabilitation.
