Now living happily in Florida
On January 29, 2014, HUA rescued 45 dogs from a puppy mill in South Dakota. Some of the dogs went to other groups and the majority of them (about 30) came to HUA. HUA has been working with this particular mill on downsizing and we are pleased to announce that this mill is now shut down!
Because of these collaborative efforts, another 45 dogs are now free. Of the group, only 3 of them are males. All others are females. Puppies were also released. A few three-month-old Japanese Chin pups and four six-week-old pups are in the group. What does all this mean? Female dogs are not needed at the mill for breeding because puppies aren't selling. Efforts in educating the public are working and we must continue to let people know about puppy mills and their connection to pet stores, newspaper ads, internet ads, etc.
Melanie is one the Dakota Darlings. We adore her. She is a sweet, spunky little girl who is known to be the life of the party. Her adorable butt wiggle for attention brings her plenty of it. She is a darling girl, devoted to people and so very ready to start her new life as a cherished member of her very own family.
