The ASPCA reports that a commercial breeder in Iowa, U.S. had almost 170 dogs and puppies seized by authorities. The dogs, all Samoyeds, were kept in overcrowded, dilapidated kennels in below freezing temperatures. The dogs had no access to clean water or food and showed signs of extreme neglect. The ASPCA identified that the owner of the puppy mill in fact had a breeders license through the USDA. The local Sheriff’s Office explained that the dogs were seized after several months of talks with the owner to provide the animals with humane care. To read more about this, click here.

The New Hampshire SPCA is reaching out for help. After 36 German Shepherds were rescued from a neglectful situation. After a fire broke out in the hoarders home, 29 German Shepherds were killed in the blaze. 9 were found alive in the burnt out basement and 22 were found 20 days later in a barn loft which left the dogs in exposure to below zero temperatures. One of the rescued females soon gave birth to a litter of 5 puppies, as a result the shelter has been completely tapped out for funding. The shelter is reaching out and asking the public for any possible donations to help provide for the 36 Sheperds in total. The dogs are required to remain at the shelter until court proceedings come to a resolve. If you would like to help click on the link here. Any donation is greatly appreciated.
