Do you have a puppy mill survivor? If yes, please share their story.

My partner and I are very fortunate to have 2 incredibly sweet Labs in our family, Sasha and Kaia, both of whom are former breeder dogs from puppy mills. One is 8-10 years of age and is now a certified therapy dog; she is incredibly special. The other is a very gentle 5-6-year-old who is still trying to figure out the ways of the world outside her unspeakable former life, but she's already made enormous strides and we're thrilled that she's been learning to relax, trust humans, and enjoy herself a bit.

Are you affiliated with any other animal welfare organizations?

My name is Cris, and I'm a parent of 2 super-sweet adult puppy mill survivors, Sasha and Kaia, both of whom had been used repeatedly for breeding. Sasha was found 3.5 years ago in Holmes County, OH, and Kaia was rescued earlier this year in Ontario.
