ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Dogs ranging from dachshunds to poodles to shih tzus who were rescued in recent raids around Missouri are now available for adoption in St. Louis.
The Humane Society of Missouri says the dogs came from so-called puppy mills in Dunklin, Lawrence, Phelps, Cole and Newton counties. The animals were rescued by the Humane Society's Animal Cruelty Task Force in cooperation with the Missouri Department of Agriculture and the state Attorney General's office.
The dogs can be seen at the Humane Society headquarters in St. Louis or on the society's website.
All have received treatment for any veterinary problems and are up-to-date with vaccinations. They also have a microchip with identification and have had spay or neuter surgery.
