Earlier this month “Molly” was imprisoned at an inhumane puppy mill and facing a life of forced reproduction and misery, but thanks to a series of fortunate events at Kent Animal Shelter, the lucky black was rescued and adopted by a loving family this week.
Molly was part of a recent transport of 30 breeder dogs rescued from a Missouri puppy mill by the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons (ARF) in concert with the Rescue Road Warriors. Kent Animal Shelter took in 10 of those dogs, including Molly, for wellness care, food and shelter while awaiting adoption. As it happens, Kent is currently showcasing black dogs and cats, and offering discount adoption fees for them as part of a national “Back in Black” promotion throughout November sponsored by Best Friends Animal Society.
“We’re especially happy for Molly because she’s a rescued puppy mill dog and eligible for our ‘Back in Black’ adoption promotion this month,” said Pamela Green, Kent’s Executive Director. “She really hit the jackpot, and all of us at Kent are high-fiving each other.”
Molly is the fifth pet to get adopted so far this month as part of the “Back in Black” promotion. The shelter is showcasing adorable, adoptable black dogs, cats, puppies and kittens that are too often overlooked. Adoption fees for black animals are 50 percent off during November as part of this promotion.
Kent Animal Shelter is part of a network of humane organizations urging consumers to stop buying puppies from pet stores and give shelter pets a chance. Puppy mills are notoriously inhumane, unsanitary, and profit-driven.
Established in 1968 in Calverton, NY Kent Animal Shelter is a 501C3 organization that provides a no-kill haven for homeless animals, adoption services, a spay/neuter clinic, and humane education. To meet Kent’s ebony charmers, or any other available pet, visit kentanimalshelter.com.
