I was recently told about this story, however, the events took place in 2013.
Dog rescuers are my heroes, especially those that rescue dogs from puppy mills. They work continuously to help the helpless animals who would otherwise have absolutely no one they can count on to save them from their dire situations.
When I was told about Billy, it absolutely broke my heart. I had to learn more about Billy and his rescuer, Adam. Adam and his team investigated a puppy mill in North Carolina. They discovered many puppies that were left to live out their lives in filthy conditions in cages.
Then Adam discovered Billy’s cage.
This tiny little dog was found severely underweight and was so malnourished that half of his bottom jaw was missing. I don’t know how, but even through all that, this sweet pup was happy after Adam pried open the cage in which Billy was kept because the lock had rusted over. Adam says that he had probably lived his entire life in that cage and was only sporadically slipped food in between the bars (I can’t help crying even as I write this).
Adam adopted Billy and says he is amazed at how quickly Billy has responded and managed to retain a loving heart.
These rescue stories invariably touch us. Billy is far an exception. It never ceases to baffle me how human beings could be so cruel to ANY animal. It is a shame what these poor pups endure in puppy mills, which is why it is vital that animal lovers step up and try to close them down.
It is such a shame what these poor pups endure in puppy mills, which is why it is vital that animal lovers step up and try to close them down. We can all help and together we can make a difference!
