Dogs Subjected To A Life Of Continual Breeding See Sunlight For The First Time.

The rescue team from Animal Rescue Corps received a tip-off about the whereabouts of a puppy mill, located right smack in the middle of Gibson County. However, no amount of prior experience could’ve possibly prepared them for the horrors they were about to witness. Once they arrived at the scene, the animal rescuers were subjected to the horrific sight of roughly 48 fragile dogs on the verge of vanishing off the face of the planet.

A puppy mill is a commercial dog breeding facility, established with the aim of maximizing profits.

However, little to no attention is ever paid to the well being of the animals inside. At these sickly establishments, female dogs/cats are bred persistently, until their bodies simply give up.

Estimates suggest that there are currently 10,000 puppy mills in the U.S. alone.

What makes matters worse is the fact that laws governing animal breeding are not explicitly defined by most U.S. states. In states such as Tennessee, any breeder with 20 or more female dogs/cats who are ready for sale, is considered a commercial breeder.

It was simply heartbreaking for any animal lover to walk in and see this.

But after coming across two dead dogs on the premises, the rescuers knew they had to act immediately to free the poor pups from their lives of suffering and loneliness. Most of the dogs were suffering from severe dehydration, mange, urine scalding, pest infestation and emaciation.

Most of them were kept inside all day, while some were left outside to face the harsh sun.

Judging from their pitiful condition, it seemed as if their owner saw them as a commodity, and not living creatures. The rescuers weren't even sure when was the last time these canines had a proper meal and clean drinking water.
