The largest puppy mill rescue ever conducted in Tennessee was set into motion by The HSUS’s Tennessee state director who received undercover tips and worked with investigators with the District Attorney’s office to build a case against the puppy mill operator. Law enforcement personnel from the Hickman County Sheriff’s Department, the Tennessee Department of Agriculture, the 21st Judicial District Drug Task Force, and the Tennessee Highway Patrol assisted in executing the search warrant. Nearly 700 animals were removed from the facility, which was known as Pine Bluff Kennels. Rescuers from the Humane Society of Missouri, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the Nashville Humane Society, High Forest Humane Society, Hickman County Humane Society, Tampa Bay Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and various volunteers from across the nation joined The HSUS to tackle the task of rescuing, processing, housing, and administering veterinary care for more than 650 dogs.
