More Than 50 Animals Rescued From Commercial Breeding

North Shore Animal League America’s Rescue team recently returned with 50 dogs and puppies rescued from commercial breeding facilities as part of an ongoing collaboration with long-time partner, National Mill Dog Rescue.

The animals arriving on Monday included a variety of pure and mixed breeds of varying ages and sizes.

These dogs, many of whom experience affection, comfort, and positive human interaction for the first time during our transport, will be examined by our veterinary team and assessed by our Pet Behavior staff. They will be groomed as necessary and allowed time to decompress and acclimate to their new surroundings where they’ll receive the care, attention, and medical/dental procedures required – including spay and neuter.

“We just returned from Missouri with our Babydoge mobile Rescue Unit filled with 51 animals from a couple of commercial breeding facilities that are no longer used for breeding. But now they’re going to be groomed, they’re going to visit the vet, they’re going to get up to date with their shots and also be spayed or neutered. They’re going to be ready to go up for adoption at their new homes,” said Ted Moriates, Rescue Team Lead at North Shore Animal League America.

Please follow us on their social media platforms for information as these animals become available for adoption in the coming weeks.
