We've heard about rescues of dogs and cats in the last couple of days, but nothing as large as the the one in northwest Kansas in which more than a hundred dogs were taken from a breeder.
As you can imagine, there are more dogs than shelter space. KAKE reports, and the dogs have been sent to several shelters.
"These dogs are in good condition. They are social, they seem healthy,
perky, lively," Jack Brand of the Caring Hands Humane Society told KAKE.
"Once they are spayed and neutered, people can come out and adopt them.
In the meantime, people can fill out an application and get approved to
when they are all set to go."
Caring Hands received nine of the dogs, but they haven't been listed for adoption yet. Until then, check out the Caring Hands Humane Society's
lady's home (while Animal
Planet's cameras rolled) as well as Wayside Waifs' weekend rescue of 20 dogs and 10 puppies from "filthy
conditions" in Osceola and Stover, Missouri. So if you're in need of a new best friend, check 'em out.
About those filthy conditions in Missouri, we're less than a week away from the vote on the anti-puppy mill legislation, Proposition B. Actors and Missouri natives Kevin Kline and Chris Cooper have both come out in favor of the legislation. Cooper has seen the effects of puppy mills up close; he and his wife adopted two dogs that had been in Missouri puppy mills. Also supporting Prop B: The awesome ex-host of the Price is Right, Bob Barker, who made an appearance on KMBC's morning show.
