Animal Rescue Corps has been assisting law enforcement in rescuing animals from backyard breeding operations across the United States for several years. They document the cruelties for evidence packages and ensure that the animals find loving homes. In this recent operation in Tennessee, they seized 25 dogs, seven cats, and two chinchillas from the backyard breeding operation. Many of the large dogs were living in small cages where they were unable to stand or turn around. The animals were subjected to unsanitary housing, neglect, and inadequate veterinary care.
The rescued animals are now being taken care of at the rescue center in Gallatin, Tennessee. Many of the animals have medical conditions that require urgent treatment, including puncture wounds, mammary tumors, overgrown nails, pressure wounds, skin inflammation, ear and eye infections, and internal parasites. The Animal Rescue Corps will provide the animals with medical, physical, and emotional care before ensuring they find loving homes.
The animals' owners were arrested and charged with animal cruelty. It is crucial that law enforcement takes action to stop backyard breeding operations that are breeding animals for profit without regard for their needs. This particular breeding mill in Tennessee was shut down, and the animals were saved from their inhumane living conditions. By reporting animal cruelty and supporting animal rescue organizations like Animal Rescue Corps, we can help put an end to animal abuse and ensure that animals are treated with the respect and care they deserve.
