Last week, SPCA Westchester received five puppy mill survivors at the SPCA Rescue Center. Westchester County SPCA is a no-kill animal rescue and humanitarian law enforcement center in Westchester County.

All five dogs arrived in a “very rough condition” with two dogs requiring surgery ASAP.
“These are not dogs but mothers who are often left behind. They are all in a very rough condition and have had little to no scrutiny or socialization. Alas, Mandy, our fearless little poodle, and Tully, a shy but cute American Eskimo in need of surgery on their immediately.”
Officials said Mandy had a severe eye infection that resulted from trauma that was never treated.
“She needs cryosurgery to remove her itchy eyelashes which are very painful. Her eyelid also needs[repairing]to rest on her eye properly. It breaks our hearts when we think about how long she has suffered needlessly,” Westchester SPCA added.
Tully’s medical problems aren’t as obvious at first glance as Mandy’s. But officials add that once you spend a few minutes with her, it becomes very clear that Tally has difficulty walking due to her two stiff kneecaps.
“She has two very loose patellas that cause her to become so tight that she shakes,” Westchester SPCA says of Tully. “Surgery is the only option and we want to give Tully the best possible chance of a happy life.”
SPCA Westchester hopes to raise $4,000 to cover a large portion of canine surgeries.
“Please remember, every dollar helps. Thank you in advance,” Westchester SPCA said.
