DENVER — The Dumb Friends League of Denver took possession of 28 “discarded breeding dogs” saved by the National Mill Dog Rescue on Sunday, the League said.
The rescued animals are all small and medium dogs, including spaniels, terriers, poodles and other breeds.
“The sooner they’re placed into a permanent home, the better off they are,” said Judi Heady, associate director of operations at the Dumb Friends League.
The dogs will be evaluated for health and well-being, and admitted to the shelter for care and, eventually, adoption. While some of the dogs may need dental or other medical care, others may be up for adoption in as soon as a few days.
