The Humane Society of Morgan County (HSMC) has taken in eight rescue dogs recovered from a puppy mill, bringing the facility to full capacity.
“As far as space goes, we are full,” said Brandi Skinner, director of the HSMC. “We would like to get the word out that we have a lot of great animals here in need of good homes.”
A total of 27 dogs were surrendered to an animal rescue out of Colbert, Georgia.
The organization reached out to the HSMC for help. Skinner took eight of those dogs, all of which are female.
The group includes two Yorkshire Terriers, two chihuahuas, and three miniature pincher mixes.
“None of them have had any idea what life was outside of a crate,” said Skinner, pictured on the right and below. “Now they can play out in the yard here and they are all super sweet.”
Each of the rescues has received medical care.
“They are all healthy and spaid. All of them have had dental work. They are all fixed up and ready to find their new homes,” assured Skinner.
The HSMC currently has 80 animals up for adoption, both dogs and cats available.
Currently, the HSMC is offering half-price adoptions for kittens. The shelter has about 50 kittens currently available.
The HSMC is also selling raffle tickets to win $10,000. Each ticket is $100, with only 200 tickets available. The winner will be chosen at the upcoming Chili Cook-Off in Town Park in Madison on October 8.
