One Year Later: Puppy Mill Dogs

Stories of the dogs who were rescued in the nation's largest puppy mill seizure

Humane Society International

In September 2011, HSI/Canada assisted the Quebec government in the rescue of 527 dogs and puppies from inhumane conditions at Canada’s largest commercial breeding facility. One year later, Canada celebrates this historic rescue with the Valley Mastiff Rescue, which helped find loving forever homes for dozens of dogs. Special thanks to the Valley Mastiff Rescue for holding an event that allowed the volunteers, the adoptive families and the rescued dogs to reunite one year later.

Special thanks to the dozens of SPCA/SPAs and rescue groups across Canada that helped find loving homes for these deserving dogs and puppies.

The dog sheltering operation and rescue was made possible in part from funding, much-needed sheltering supplies, and pet food by PetSmart Charities®, Pet Valu, Jamieson Laboratories, Nutrience (Rolf C. Hagen Inc.), Iams, Nestle Purina Pet Care, Royal Canine Kane Vet Supplies, Hunter Brand Inc., Fido, Global Pet Foods Quebec, Walmart, Bag and Go and Messageries Dynamiques.
