On March 3, 2016, HSUS was on the ground rescuing 295 dogs from a suspected puppy mill in Madison County, Arkansas. HSUS was alerted to this property through their puppy mill tip line, and local authorities served a search warrant.

On the property, they found animals living in dangerous and filthy conditions. Many of the dogs were housed in tiny cages covered with feces and lacking clean water and food. HSUS also witnessed the heartbreaking consequences of this cruelty — carcasses and piles of bones strewn across the property.

Luckily, HSUS removed the animals and transported them to a temporary emergency shelter where they were thoroughly examined by teams of veterinarians and received the necessary medical treatment.
