    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – This week, 18 teacup French Poodles were rescued from an illegal puppy mill in the province of Cartago. Humane Society International/Latin America and the Costa Rican National Animal Health Service participated in the rescue.

    All the dogs found were being housed in deplorable living conditions, showing signs of malnutrition. Several had different health afflictions requiring specialized care. Because of the bad conditions and overcrowding, the dogs were confiscated and carried to the Asociación Humanitaria para la Protección Animal de Costa Rica, an animal shelter in the province of Heredia.

    At the shelter, the dogs are being thoroughly examined by a team of veterinarians and will receive any necessary medical treatment. The dogs at the AHPPA will be in constant interaction with people, becoming more sociable and companionable, to prepare them for adoption. Two pregnant dogs and a one-month-old puppy were part of the rescue and are now being cared for by Club Poodle Club Costa Rica.

    Cynthia Dent, regional director for HSI/Latin America, said: “No animal should ever be subjected or forced to live in such deplorable conditions. We’re thankful to SENASA and AHPPA for taking action and letting us help rescue these dogs and we’re relieved these animals will soon find loving homes. We will continue to support and collaborate with SENASA and other local animal welfare organizations to help achieve higher standards of animal welfare.”

    HSI/Latin America encourages people to adopt dogs from animal shelters or responsible breeders rather than purchasing a puppy from a pet store or online seller, where most of the dogs come from puppy mills. Puppy mills are facilities that churn out puppies for the pet trade with an emphasis on profit over welfare. Dogs bred in puppy mills often live in small wire cages with little or no personal attention, exercise or veterinary care.
