Puppy Mill Rescue

This is a story my daddy told me about a flight he had from Tulsa to Dallas Ft. Worth a couple of weeks ago. He was flying his "big birdie in the sky", and he had some special passengers. 47 of them!

He had 47 Puppy passengers traveling in the belly of his plane. The cargo compartment they had to travel in, is pressurized, so they were ok, but I would have been so scared!

But why so many Puppies? It is a sad story with hopefully a happy ending. These Puppies were rescued from a puppy mill in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and they were being transported to different animal shelters across the country.

I am sad that these Puppies had to start out life like this, but I am praying that they will find good forever homes soon.


Once the Puppies were taken off my daddy's "big birdie on the ground" in Dallas, they were loaded into pickups and taken to their next flights to their final destinations.

Oh, how scared, I would have been......

These Puppies were very brave. My daddy said they were pretty quiet and did not bark much. Maybe they somehow knew that they might have a chance at a good life now?

Please help me pray that this story has a happy ending for these Puppies.

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my SMALL WORLD too, thanks!

hi JB, that's a happy story, we hope. we would be scared too. when i, Bailey, was just a little pupster, i had to fly in an airplane just like that. i went all the way from minnesota to seattle, where my b-mom picked me up and took me home. i went all day long without going potty and i was just a little kid. but i was fine and now i have a wonderful life. i hope that's what will happen to these pups too.

Wow, it's interesting seeing these photos from the airport's perception. That's a lot of crates! I hope the doggies find good homes. I hope their story leads to happy endings.

Oh, wow, JB. What a story! We're so glad they had wonderful pilots shuttling them to their new lives.

That picture of all the puppies on the luggage cart is both heartbreaking and wonderful.

My god, what criminals we are to create these poor creatures... Here, in Italy, police liberated more than 100 puppies and gave them to the persons some days ago.
