The Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA has assisted the ASPCA with a puppy mill raid based in Garland County, Arkansas. The breeding dogs, some with tiny puppies, had been living in sheds outside a mobile home. ASPCA investigators found 175 dogs and puppies suffering from eye, dental, and skin diseases, fleas, mites, and heartworm. Many of the puppies and dogs were found to be emaciated. The owners were arrested and are awaiting trial.

Currently, CGHS/SPCA has six Boston Terriers and two Dachshunds ranging from one to seven years of age. “These dogs were used primarily for breeding and are in desperate need of homes that can offer patience and compassion,” said Ron Perez, President/Investigator of CGHS/SPCA.

For more individuals seeking more information about the dogs or those interested in adopting one of them, please contact the Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA at info@cghs.org or (518) 828-6044.
