Do you know if they need foster homes for any of the dogs(I don't know for sure if I could, but if they're needed I may be able to lend a hand), or supplies?
I would like to try to help any way I can.

Do you happen to know where these dogs were taken from? (What area around Edmonton?) I just recently reported a puppy mill in Wetaskawin...now I'm curious!!

**Edit** Oops, I meant Westlock, not Wetaskawin. heehee!

The Humane Society will be looking for temporary homes for some of the animals and if you would like to help, call 780-491-3506.

(**I the changed link, the phone number is from a different news article.)




Here's a news report on the bust:

We will be at the very least, donating a bag or 2 of dog food. Anything to help.
I will call tomorrow and see what their foster situation looks like.

That is great news. I hope this person is not allowed to own animals again.
