CHICAGO -- More than 80 animals rescued from a puppy mill in Kankakee last week are getting a second chance.
On April 7th Kankakee County officials rescued the dogs on April 7th from a puppy mill in St. Anne, Ill., near Kankakee.
At times there were three to four dogs in a small cage – many of those and others mistreated.
They were small breeds: Chihuahuas, Shih Tzus, Yorkies. Most had skin conditions from sitting in their own urine and feces. That also caused urine burns, eye issues and respiratory issues.
They’ve been treated with medical care and some TLC.
The pets are placed in foster homes for now and will soon be up for adoption at PAWS in Chicago.
