On March 20, 2014, in partnership with the Humane Society of Bay County, we rescued 12 male standard poodles from an hoarding / puppy mill situation. We took in 3 more from the same situation a week later. The dogs ranged in age from 8 months to 3 years of age. They were all vetted and neutered. Because of the situation these dogs came from, they all needed special attention and care as well as work with socialization and leash training. They came a long way in the short time they were in our care. They liked people but were unsure and afraid of many things as several had not been outside their kennel environment. They all needed time and patience. All went on to furever homes where they receive unconditional love from their adopting families.
In the end, almost 150 dogs were rescued from the same owner. That truly took a vilage and we will never forget how so many people came together to help these beautiful creatures.
Six of the dogs received into our care were accepted into the MiPAWS program at the Correctional Institute in Ionia.
