More Puppy Mill Rescue Dogs Arrive In Denver

Some Dogs Available For Adoption This Week

More than two dozen dogs rescued from a puppy mill have arrived in Denver for adoption.

Volunteers with the Colorado Springs-based National Mill Dog Rescue picked up the dogs from puppy mills in Kansas. More than half of the dogs rescued were brought to the Dumb Friends League.

The dog breeds include poodle, bichon frise, dachshund, silky terrier, Yorkshire terrier and Maltese.

Over the past two months, 62 puppy mill dogs from commercial; breeding operations have come to the Dumb Friends League. More than 58 have been adopted.

The latest group of dogs arrived severely matted and scared, officials said.

A few of the dogs may be available for adoption later this week. Others need additional veterinary care and/or socialization in a foster home for several weeks, officials said.
