Dogs rescued from Iowa puppy mill arrive in Omaha




By Kevin Cole / World-Herald staff writer 10 hrs ago

Several dogs rescued from an Iowa puppy mill soon will be put up for adoption at the Nebraska Humane Society after they are properly groomed and assessed.

The 10 Samoyed dogs and puppies seized Nov. 12 from a puppy mill near Manly, Iowa, arrived in Omaha on Tuesday. The shelter previously had received eight of the estimated 170 dogs authorities found in “filthy, dilapidated kennels” with “minimal protection from the weather,” said Pam Wiese, a spokeswoman for the Nebraska Humane Society.

The dogs arrived at 5 p.m. Tuesday but aren’t yet available for adoption, Wiese said.

Humane Society workers will “begin our normal assessments of health and temperaments to see who is ready for adoption and who needs fostering or socializing,” Wiese said. “None of the dogs will be available for at least a few days.”

2. I work on having compassion for all beings...

...and it’s much easier to manage it for some than it is for others. Puppy millers are some that present the bigger challenges.

May the dogs find happy homes.
