Lily: A Hero For Mill Dogs

Lily was born, raised and perhaps had 13 litters of puppies at the Reedgate Kennels before we were able to buy her at auction. Her time there was spent in a wire cage with a board to sleep on and a rabbit waterer to drink from. While in the mill she received little or no vet care and because of this she lost all her teeth and her lower jaw rotted off, which is not unusual for the smaller breeds in the puppy mills.

This does not surprise me at all; thank God Lily got out and had some love and comfort before she died.

Of course I'm crying my eyes out now...

I've picketed puppy stores. It makes me sick to even look at one... and they're all over down here. :(
