KANKAKEE, Ill. — It was called Operation Spring Break, but it was not a fun trip.
Eighty neglected dogs and puppies were rescued 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.
All these animals will get a thorough veterinary inspection and are expected to be put up for adoption soon.
APRIL 9, 2015 UPDATE: The dogs are not up for adoption yet, but they should be soon. More information here: https://www.facebook.com/AnimalRescueCorps
