When I first met Boomer, his hair was so matted and tangled it was ripping his skin.
This was the reality of Boomer’s life of neglect in a Mississippi puppy mill. When we found him locked in a tiny garage with dozens of other dogs, I could hardly believe my eyes. His fur was such a terrible mess that when HSUS rescuers shaved it off, it came away like a tiny coat.
Boomer’s a lucky survivor -- now his coat is white and fluffy, and he sleeps in a warm bed in a safe place. To help save thousands of animals just like him in the new year, we’re doing something BIG: We’re hoping to raise $1.2 million online by December 31 for our 2011 Animal Survivors Fund.
It’s ambitious -- but so are our plans for saving animals next year. We'll not only continue to help bust puppy mills, but we'll also take on the other individuals and industries that profit from animal suffering -- from people who club baby seals to death, to those who confine animals in factory farms, to those who cruelly pit dog against dog in dogfighting rings.
