19 Dogs Rescued by Missouri Animal Cruelty Task Force this Week
The Missouri Humane Society Animal Cruelty Task Force raided an unlicensed breeder this week and the result is 19 dogs that now need new homes after mistreatment.
I saw this shared by Yahoo News. According to their report, the unlicensed breeder is located in Urbana and had previously been banned from acquiring a license due to "failing to maintain humane conditions for their dogs" last year.
Fox 2 out of St. Louis shared video from the animals who were rescued and many of them are puppies as young as 1 week old.
The Yahoo News report indicates that the Missouri Humane Society Animal Cruelty Task Force has rescued 100 animals from that unlicensed breeder over the years and now they need to find good homes for these dogs.
According to the official Missouri Humane Society website, the task force is on call 24 hours-a-day. It says that in a typical year, they'll have to rescue over 22,000 animals. If you know of a situation with animals in distress, you can contact them at 314-647-4400.
