The humane society partnered with the ASPCA® (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) to receive the animals.

“We are honored to be part of the network of rescue groups and shelters chosen to help give these pups a second chance at finding wonderful loving homes,” said Kristy Gardner, Co-Director of Cedar Bend Humane Society.

The dogs came from an inhumane breeding facility where they were living in an overcrowded area.

The humane society says they are now taking the time to evaluate the dogs and determine his/her needs.

Gardner said the dogs will be highlighted online with photos and their personality traits starting the week of November 26.

Until then, Gardner said they are asking for help supporting the humane society.

“Donations to help support the medical, grooming and daily needs of these dogs will be very much appreciated and will go directly to help spay, neuter, vaccinate and help each dog become ready for adoption," Gardner said.
