Puppy mill dogs up for adoption

The first group of animals seized in an alleged puppy mill last week have all been adopted.

The first group of animals seized in an alleged puppy mill last week have all been adopted.

The Edmonton Humane Society said within minutes, seven dogs and one cat were given homes.

Spokeswoman Shawna Randolph says the animals have no major behavioural issues and are in excellent health.

Last week, neighbours in a west-end Edmonton neighbourhood identified a home they believe is the location of an alleged puppy mill.

The humane society rescued 32 dogs and 10 cats.

A spokesperson said the dogs and cats were living in deplorable conditions, in tiny cages for breeding purposes.

And in some cases animals were left without adequate food or water.

The humane society says the homeowner did surrender the animals after the society received a complaint from a citizen concerned about the well-being of some of the animals in the home.

Charges under the Animal Protection Act are pending.

If convicted, a judge could prohibit the homeowner from owning animals ever again and there’s a fine of up to $20,000.
