I’m not usually too political, but this one hits close to home, literally.
Many of you have met our latest rescue Fennec. He was very lucky, he was bought out of Spraker’s puppy mill and ultimately ended up at Glen Highland Farm Border Collie Rescue and then at our house. But the puppy mill is still there and it’s run by someone who clearly sees these dogs as a commodity. This video was taken Friday with all the dogs out in the sub-zero temperatures. In one frame you can see a young dog huddled by the gate hoping for compassion.
The police say the owner has not broken any laws and this may be true based on how the laws are written in NY. There is tougher legislation being proposed, but the governor needs to be encouraged to sign it. The deadline for a signature is January 10, 2014. Learn more about the legislation and consider adding your voice to let the governor know that we don’t condone this type of treatment of dogs.
