The BISSELL Pet Foundation awarded an emergency grant to the Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) to fund the rescue of animals from a puppy mill in Humboldt, TN. With the assistance of the Gibson County Sherriff’s Office, ARC rescued an estimated 100 dogs and newborn litters of puppies. The dogs were suffering from untreated, painful eye infrections, respiratory conditions, dental issues, and severe matting that limited their mobility and vision.
Today, ARC safely removed the animals from the property and transported them to an emergency shelter. Each animal will receive a thorough veterinary exam, appropriate vaccinations, and any neccessary medical treatment. ARC will provide daily care until the court determines custody of the animals. If the animals are awarded to ARC, they will be placed with shelter and rescue organizations across the country that will ultimately adopt them into loving homes.
