Arizona no-kill shelter takes in 18 puppy mill survivors
PHOENIX — Arizona’s largest and oldest no-kill shelter has some new residents that are being prepared for adoption.
The Arizona Animal Welfare League, in partnership with the National Mill Dog Rescue, has taken in 18 puppy mill survivors.
Most of the rescued dogs were trapped in small cages for years and had very little medical care except to give birth, according to a press release.
AAWL’s behavioral and medical teams as well as volunteers are rehabilitating the puppies.
The shelter, located near 40th and Washington streets, has rescued more than 170 puppy mill survivors from across the country.

AAWL is open Tuesdays-Sundays 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and closed Mondays.
