Daisy and I love bringing you stories about how you can help support efforts to help animals in need. We’ve blogged about how you can take the ASPCA Pledge to End Puppy Mills by promising never to shop for anything at a store that sells puppies. Well, you might have seen the shocking news about the recent puppy mill situation in Johnston, S.C.
The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society of Charlotte were called in by the Edgefield County Sheriff’s Office to assist in the rescue of approximately 250 animals including more than 200 dogs of various breeds and ages living in deplorable conditions.
PetSmart Charities heard about what was going on and dispatched its Emergency Relief Waggin’ vehicle, stocked with $90,000 worth of crucial supplies, to the scene where animal rescue teams will operate an emergency shelter. The vehicles are stocked with crucial supplies, including pet food, wire crates, plastic carriers, bowls, fans, and more to aid the animal rescuers on scene.
This is where you can help support the PetSmart Charities’ Emergency Relief program by making a donation online to help more pets like these find the loving homes they deserve. Any amount will help, and no donation is too small.
