In July 2014, the Cherokee County Animal Shelter and Cherokee County Marshal’s Office busted a huge puppy mill that had been operating in Georgia since the 1980 s. All dogs and puppies were rescued from the horrific facility and were cared for at the Cherokee County Animal Shelter until they were ready for rescue or adoption. Many pregnant females dedicated birth shortly after the bust, and creating the final total of rescued puppies even further. The proprietors of the puppy mill plead guilty to 25 charges of animal cruelty and were sentenced to 25 consecutive years of probation.
This video takes you through the puppy mill bust firsthand, then shows you the working day the dogs were adopted, and a special reunion that took place one year later. Don’t support this cruelty by buying puppies from flea market or pet stores, or online. Instead, check out your local shelter or rescue group, or find a genuinely responsible breeder.
