CANTON, Mich. — Homeward Bound Rescue League of Canton is looking for homes to foster puppy mill rescue dogs and puppies.

Watch: Animals Rescued From Puppy Mills

Breeders at nine puppy mills across the state voluntarily surrendered the animals, along with their parents.
Amy Watts, a volunteer with Homeward Bound Rescue said the owners could no longer provide for them.
“Some are fairly well taken care of. Some are pitiful, bedraggled, just dirty, dirty, dirty,” Watts said. “This is the first human touch they’ve had.”

There is no cost to those who volunteer, but they must be 21 years or older.
“We are looking for people with big hearts who have a passion for dogs,” said Carrie Marsh, Director of Homeward Bound. “We provide all food, vet care, crates, and the only thing we ask in return is that you provide a safe and loving home for our furbabies until they are adopted. Volunteering for an animal rescue is a very rewarding experience. What is frustrating is the fact that there are so many dogs out there that we could help, but don’t have enough foster homes.”
All of the animals are spayed and neutered and will have a microchip placed on them.
The group will be holding an adoption drive Saturday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. outside Pet Supplies Plus on Ford Road in Canton.
