More than 100 dogs voluntarily removed from Camden County kennel

Tuesday, September 21, 2010 | 11:40 a.m. CDT

CAMDENTON — More than 100 dogs have been removed from a south-central Missouri kennel after the owner voluntarily gave up the animals.

Officials with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Humane Society of Missouri took the dogs from the kennel in Camden County to Humane Society facilities in Springfield and St. Louis today. They'll receive medical care and eventually be put up for adoption.

The dogs were a mix of large and small breeds.

The ASPCA says the kennel owner could no longer afford to feed the dogs and contacted a rescue group.

Animal rights advocates say Missouri is home to more than 3,000 commercial dog breeding facilities — more than 20 percent of the U.S. total.

I admire the kennel owner for contacting a rescue group before causing more harm to these babies. I realize how difficult it must have been for them to admit their inadeqacies. Wish more kennel and 'pet' owners were that truthful and sincere with all loving creatures. It makes me sick to think of and actually see orphaned ones running loose to suffer and starve. I/we being pet lovers, ourselves living on a fixed income, have chosen to save/adopt and make home to 4 rescued dogs and 12 farrow cats that would have otherwise been running wild to be injured or mamed and starve.
I/we wholehearted feel mandatory neutering/spaying of all feline and canine babies is a 'must' to prevent this ongoing human abuse of hundred of thousands of these babies. We would like to strongly urge a law be put into place nationwide to require all family owned pets be spayed or neutered regardless AND limit puppy/pet mills and dog and cat breeders from mass production. Why should these loving creatures suffer for humans to make money. Why doesn't the majority of humans realize that hundreds of thousands and possibly millions are euthanized each year because of our negligence and stupidity. Thank you. . . .
