Among the many rescue organizations who will be helping, representatives from Dachshund Rescue of North America will be in Parkersburg, West Virginia, today to take possession of at least 100 of the dachshunds rescued in the puppy mill bust at Whispering Oaks Kennel. Excerpt from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: "It's sad, it's very sad," said Dora Show, Pennsylvania's lead DRNA representative. "Puppies from mills are not very socialized because they've not had much human contact. They're snappy, they're not friendly, they're scared to death of everything."
Ms. Show drove a rented, air-conditioned cargo van from Markleysburg, Fayette County, to Parkersburg last night, where she met Jill Blasdel-Cortus, president of the DNRA, from Greensburg, Indiana. Together, the two women hoped to take more than 100 of the dachshunds from the American Humane Society warehouse where they're being kept.
