The Humane Society of Missouri is receiving 62 dogs from the National Mill Dog Rescue. Rescued breeds include pugs, standard poodles, miniature poodles, great danes, border collies, shih tzus and chihuahuas. The dogs will arrive at HSMO’s Macklind headquarters in St. Louis, where all the animals will receive health evaluations and emergency veterinary treatment.

Humane Society of Missouri Rescue April 2024As one of the nation’s largest animal-welfare organizations, HSMO has partnered with the National Mill Rescue and will provide the necessary shelter, medical care, and adoption services for the rescued dogs. The dogs were rescued from breeding facilities from throughout the Midwest.

“Because of important partnerships like this, our team can help give these dogs the care they need and the second chance they deserve for healthy and happy lives,” said Kathy Warnick, HSMO president. “But our mission to end the cycle of abuse and pet overpopulation through rescue efforts and world-class veterinary care isn’t possible without the support of our community.”

To help care for the animals, HSMO is also asking the public for assistance through donations of blankets, newspapers, dog toys, dog beds or anything else that can make these animals’ recovery more comfortable.

Humane Society of Missouri Rescue April 2024HSMO expects to make the dogs available for adoption after they have been given a clean bill of health by the veterinarians and evaluated by the animal behavior team. As the animals recover, medically and behaviorally, they will be made available for adoption on a case-by-case basis. There is no current timeline for when these dogs will be ready for their forever home, but interested adopters can check our adoptable pet page to see when they become available.
