On Wednesday I posted The Missouri 75, about the dogs that were rescued from a breeder who set fire to his property. There were over 200 dogs saved, they were split into smaller groups to make the situation more manageable for the shelters helping out.

I received a message from Gina Higgins at the Raytown Animal Hospital Adoption Center, they are caring for 70 of the dogs. They are a small facility and desperately in need of volunteers and donations.

We are working with a rescue group call Midwest Paws. They have rescued 70 German Short Hair Pointers from the puppy mill that was set on fire last week in southwestern Missouri! We are housing ALL 70 at our tiny shelter!
