Anderson County P.A.W.S. announced Wednesday that they have received a grant that will help assist with the rescue and treatment of dogs recovered from a puppy mill in August.

The organization announced that they have received a $5,000 emergency assistance grant from the ASPCA to help the 153 dogs recovered from a home near Starr.

"The dogs rescued had a variety of medical problems and their needs were tremendous," said Jessica Cwynar, Director of Anderson County P.A.W.S.  "Thanks to the assistance provided by the ASPCA, P.A.W.S. was able to offer the specialized care these dogs needed while also maintaining the high standard of care we provide to all the animals in residence at our facility.  We cannot thank the ASPCA enough for their assistance in our time of need."

"Puppy mill dogs often suffer from inhumane conditions that are unacceptable," said Justine Dang, ASPCA Senior Director of President's Office Operations. "The ASPCA is proud to support the life-saving work of P.A.W.S. and hopes these animals will find loving homes soon."
