Humane Society rescues 19 dogs from puppy mill

Apr 28, 2013

The Humane Society of Charlotte says it rescued 19 breeding dogs early Saturday from a puppy mill in western North Carolina.  The society said its emergency response team found a breeding operation at the site, with 19 Maltese and Maltese mix dogs between 4 and 10 years old.

Officials said the dogs had mouth, eye and skin problems resulting from a lack of veterinary care. They will be treated then sent to foster homes.
