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.
