85 Dogs Rescued From North Carolina Puppy Mill Ready for Adoption

85 out of the 214 neglected dogs rescued last month from a puppy mill in Chatham County, North Carolina, are ready for adoption.

Currently, the Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) is making preparations to transport the 85 dogs to various animal shelters and rescues located in high-adoption regions across North America. Once the animals arrive at these vetted shelters and rescue centers, they’ll be up for adoption.

214 dogs seized from North Carolina puppy mill last month

This past February, the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office joined hands with the Animal Rescue Corps, the BISSELL Pet Foundation, and the Nashville Humane Society to rescue 214 dogs and puppies, whom they found living in appalling conditions at the suspected puppy mill.

Sadly, the animals — comprising mostly Miniature Schnauzers and Schnauzer Mixes as per Fox17 News reports — appeared malnourished, dehydrated, and severely matted. Moreover, the dogs had parasitic infections, untreated injuries, skin issues, and “other life-threatening conditions consistent with chronic neglect.”

Unfortunately, authorities also found deceased dogs on the property, according to WRAL News. All rescued dogs received extensive veterinary care and behavioral support from professionals at the Animal Rescue Corps Rescue Center.

85 pups ready to find loving homes

The Animal Rescue Corps — who took in the rescued animals in accordance with a surrender agreement granted by a court — confirmed that 85 of the rescued canines will soon find their forever homes. However, the rest of the animals aren’t ready for adoption yet, as reported by WSMV4 News.

“The surrender agreement enables Animal Rescue Corps to initiate the transport and placement process for these dogs,” the rescue group said in a statement. “While these 85 dogs are on their way to new beginnings, the remaining dogs are still considered evidence of a crime and remain in the care of Animal Rescue Corps, under the custody of the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office.”
