(KMOV) – The Humane Society rescued 34 small dogs were rescued from a licensed breeding facility on Friday in Carthage, Missouri. The dogs were brought to St. Louis for care. Breeds rescued include Shih Tzus, Pekingese and Maltese. Officials say the dogs are in horrible shape, and were kept in filthy conditions. They say they were living in stacked cages with no signs of water or food. Officials also report that the breeder willingly gave up the dogs, which could be available for adoption in as soon as a couple of weeks. Proposition B, Missouri’s new law designed to put an end to cruel practices of puppy mills, does not take effect until November 2011. There’s also an effort to repeal the law in Jefferson City.
