One Thousand Dachshunds Rescued From Puppy Mill Bust in Parkersburg, West Virginia
We're woofless. Rescue groups and volunteers from all around the country are stepping up to help the Humane Society in what officials say could be the largest animal-rescue operation in West Virginia history - the removal of around 1,000 purebred dachshunds and other dogs a Parkersburg breeder surrendered to authorities Saturday. The dogs appeared to be well-nourished and officials say there were no signs that the dogs had been abused, but the sheer number of dogs at the Whispering Oaks Kennel was more than any human being could possibly care for. Read more at the News and Sentinel and the Humane Society. Your help is urgently needed, as this rescue operation could easily cost $100,000 and bust the seams of our dedicated and over-extended rescue groups . All American Dachshund Rescue is one of the many groups who will be taking possession of some of the dogs.
