I just wanted to pass on this information in case there is anyone that can help.
Yesterday there was a bust of a local puppy mill, breeders selling "teacup" chihuahuas and other small breeds. They found 700 (yes, that's seven hundred dogs in the house--and 80 parrots). Mostly chihuahuas, also some other toy breeds. 100 went to the Arizona Chihuahua Rescue organization, the Humane Society of Southern Arizona is trying to handle the other 600.
The Humane Society is really going to be needing tons of donations, food, x-pens, money for spaying and neutering, etc. They'll also be looking for adoptive parents for all of these dogs in need of homes, breeding adults, puppies, old dogs, young dogs, every color dog.
Their website is here:
The news story is front page here:
....and, well, everywhere, including world news sources.
CHIHUAHUAS. IN NEED OF HOMES. And parrots, too. Good people of Tucson, please. Come to their rescue.
