Puppy mills are horrible places. The dogs are usually found in terrible conditions and becomes a breeding ground for disease. Dog trainer Victoria Stilwell led an operation to save some dogs that were in a huge puppy mill that had been in operation since the 1980s.
After the operation, 546 dogs were removed from the puppy mill and taken to a local animal to wait for a hopeful adoption.
The whole community showed up on adoption day, and all the dogs found a family to go home with.
The people running the puppy mill were found guilty of 25 charges of animal cruelty, and were sentenced to jail for 25 years.
A year after the rescue, the owners of the rescue dogs came together for a special party to honor all those who saved the lives of the 526 puppies.
All animals deserve to be treated with respect.
