New Yorkers to adopt dogs rescued in Missouri

Tuesday, August 10, 2010 | 9:49 a.m. CDT

PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y.  — About 120 dogs of all ages will be available for adoption on Long Island following their rescue from 14 "puppy mills" in Missouri.

The North Shore Animal League America said Tuesday it has received the dogs from National Mill Dog Rescue.

North Shore experts will evaluate the dogs medically, behaviorally and socially. They'll be spayed or neutered before they're offered for adoption, starting on Saturday.

The breeds include Yorkshire terrier, Cavalier King Charles spaniel, poodle, bichon frise (BEE'-shahn FREEZ), cocker spaniel and Pomeranian.

The rescue groups say the animals suffered in crowded commercial breeding operations.

Gee these rescue people are at it again. NMR buys dogs at auction for the purpose of resale in New York to unsuspecting buyers. Sick Dogs or lame dogs, Old dogs, Ugly dogs etc; are dis-guarded (Killed) and dumped along the way to New York where the big money awaits.

There is an auction almost every day somewhere in Missouri, Oklahoma, Iowa, Kansas etc.

Why don't you start going to the auctions and see for yourself.

They are nothing but unlicensed Brokers, I hate it when some flake says they are rescuing an animal but all they are really doing is buying dogs and selling them with no warranty, no guarantee and no responsibility attached.

America needs to wake up and stop buying dogs from the "Rescue" people they are being defrauded.
