A Dog's Hero

On the heels of my last post, after we all rightly voiced our disgust for puppy mills, came a post I quickly noticed as I scrolled through my personal Facebook page yesterday.  One of our local weathermen, who also does work with homeless animals, had been asked to take part in a puppy mill rescue in Ohio.  I hadn't noticed his post back on January 11 when he first mentioned this mission he would soon be on, but I did back track and read up on the whole dramatic story.  Steve Caporizzo, along with The Healthy Pet Center in Troy, New York, all made a 24 hour round trip to Ohio to rescue as many dogs in need as they could.  These poor babies were in terrible condition and likely would not have lived without the love and caring help of these animal angels on earth.  The rescuers had no idea the last time these dogs had ever even been outside, never mind ever feeling a loving pat on the head or a cheerful voice.  They were in absolute desperate need of grooming, socialization and above all else, love.  Today I have been thrilled to be reading about their progress and how some have even found their forever families.  I cannot begin to express the feelings I have toward anyone that can harm an animal.  These dogs are such innocent, helpless creatures.  It repulses me to think anyone could let these dogs get to this condition.  Enough about "them"...the focus and point of this post was to praise and recognize the true heroes.  On behalf of every animal lover...THANK YOU.

Before and After...Both beauties I would be proud to call my own


  1. We live in Ohio and freely admit that this state has the WORST reputation for such things.... We are trying to make some changes but it is SLOW Going.
    Right here in OUR County... we had such a case and that guy is in Prison now.... however, it was NOT because of his Puppy Mill... it was for RAPE!!! Either way... he is a Creep and is right where he belongs... FINALLY.

  2. far too many puppy mills and 'collectors' all over the states. my niece adopted a puppy mill rescue who had to have her eyes removed because of the terrible toxic conditions she was found in. she loves that blind dog...

  3. O dear lord, those poor, helpless puppies. It breaks my heart every time I hears these kinds of stories and see da images. Luckily, there are still good peoples in da world trying to help.


  4. Our hearts broke a little for those pups. We wish them all the best. Lee and Phod

  13. Tears and more tears. Some humans are so so so great and we try to focus on those instead of the evil terrible ones.

    So glad those pups are healing.
