LOOGOOTEE, Ind. (WTHI) - Dogs rescued from a Martin County puppy mill are finding new homes.
Several dozen animals were rescued from a puppy mill a few weeks ago. Many of them were taken to the Martin County Humane Society. Now, the last of those rescued dogs are about to go home.
Shelter volunteers say four adult dogs and two puppies remain at the shelter but those animals may not have to wait much longer for loving homes. Potential adopters have booked appointments this weekend for each pup.
The puppy mill bust led to weeks of hard work but it also led more people to the shelter.
Martin County Humane Society Board Vice President Susan Wittmer says, "If you want to say anything good came out of this, it did get our little small town shelter exposed to a lot more people and the other shelter residents we had prior to the puppy mill, they've been getting adopted."
Now many of the animals are settling into new homes and volunteers say they may not have any dogs left in the shelter if these final adoptions go through this weekend.
Wittmer says, "For that to happen after all of this is pretty amazing. That's what it's all about, getting these dogs into loving homes. That's what makes us happy.”
You can learn more about how you can get involved and how to adopt an animal by reaching out to the Martin County Humane Society on Facebook.
