Stories like this just make my heart sink. Six dachshunds — likely rejects from a puppy mill — were dropped off at a Bainbridge Island rescue facility with all kinds of serious health issues.
Rescue manager Suzannah Sloan said the dogs had been “bred and bred and bred and bred.” They had mammary tumors, ovarian tumors, and all showed signs of neglect.
There’s a short video featuring the dogs here:

One thought provides a little comfort; the ones who may not make it will at least get to spend their final days in loving hands instead of dying alone in a small cramped cage.
