40-50 German Shepherds found in awful conditions in Floyd, VA

German Shepherd Floyd, VA

Urgent - approximately 40-50 German Shepherds were found in Floyd, VA in terrible conditions. Apparently there are two GSD puppy mills only miles apart, and Floyd county residents have been trying for years to put an end to this.

I personally spoke with the commonwealth attoney's office and the sites are currently under investigation. Unfortunately, no arrests have been made as of yet.

There are reports of puppies around 4 months old, living without shelter.

We will continue to update all of you and check out the original rescue that made the post.

So far...

We were able to connect the legal advocacy team at the Atlanta Humane Society with the Shenondoah Shepherd Rescue. Fingers crossed action can be taken asap!

What can you do?

The county NEEDS OUTSIDE PRESSURE FROM US (you too) to help push the investigation. Make calls, emails, etc.

Below is a list of resources. We'll do our part and thank you for the help!

    This is beyond disgusting that these backyard breeders have been left to continue breeding in these deplorable conditions by the county! Charges need to be made and the dogs seized indefinitely!
