Lorenzo gets his first view of the city

Back in January, nearly 600 dogs were rescued from the Snohomish and Skagit Counties in Washington State. These dogs were subject to the harsh conditions of a puppy mill – a glorified designer-dog factory where animals are forced to breed with little access to food, space or human interaction. 

On Friday, March 20, 2009, we met “Alvin” – a frail, but adorable male Yorkshire Terrier who they believed to be three-years old – at the Seattle Humane Society in Bellevue, WA. 

His owners to-be riding high from a Washington Husky win in NCAA Tournament – a scrappy little Yorkie left the rescue facility with a purple collar, a loving family and his new identity: Lorenzo Romar

As these horrible operations continue to be invaded by authorities, the number of homeless pets will climb. It is our hope to bring awareness to this cause and attest that these lovable victims can make great pets in their second shot at life.

Check back daily for updates and observations as Lorenzo Romar, the canine, adapts to a normal life post-puppy mill.
