Puppy mill raid dogs ready for adoption


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – The 67 dogs found in a Putnam County police raid can now be found new homes.

The local animal rescue For Paws Sake Canine Rescue stepped in to care for the neglected animals.

After the initial hearing on Wednesday, the rescue found they can now move forward with adoption procedures.

The woman who owned the dogs has relinquished ownership. Rescue owners were surprised, but pleased when the dogs were released so soon after the court hearing.

“We can now move on – kind of like stage three. We were, stage one was getting them out of their bad environment,” said Sheryl Shaver, For Paws Sake Canine Rescue. “Stage two was kind of triage, addressing immediate medical needs and now, stage three we can go ahead and spay and neuter, get them ready for adoption and put them into loving, permanent homes.”
