Just over a week ago, 70 dogs were saved from a puppy mill in Holmes County.

Paws for Miles saved the dogs from a puppy mill that was about to undergo a state inspection. Aaron Jones, a board member with Paws for Miles, said the breeder called them to say come get the dogs or else.

The Ohio Department of Agriculture, who has authority over puppy mills in Ohio, recently switched to scheduled inspections. This is causing massive “dumping” of sick and injured dogs prior to their scheduled inspections.

With a two days’ notice ODA gives to breeders, they end up contacting rescues and saying you either take these dogs or we are going to kill them.

There are still five of these rescued dogs that need a foster family or to be adopted. Contact Myles Ahead Sanctuary to get more details on how to help!
