ST. LOUIS - The Humane Society of Missouri is barking with activity after assisting with the rescue of 135 dogs from a breeding facility in rural Howell County. Officials hope the public will answer the call to help with the animals' short- and long-term needs.

Jeanne Jae, the Humane Society's vice president for communications, said the breeders did the right thing in recognizing they could no longer care for the animals.

"They decided that working with us would ensure the best outcome for all of their dogs," she said, "and that we would give them the veterinary care that they need, warm kennels and good 'TLC' from our staff, and then go toward finding them the best 'forever homes' possible."

Jae said it likely will be at least a week before any of the animals are ready for adoption because they need veterinary care and, in some cases, socialization. She said their photos and profiles will be posted on the Humane Society's adoptable-pet database at HSMO.org when they are eligible.

In the meantime, Jae said, there are ways for Missourians to help support the dogs as well as the many other animals who are waiting for permanent homes.

"Lots of people have come forward to help us out," she said, "with everything from towels and blankets and shredded newspaper to donations."

In addition to the routine veterinary care, she said, all the dogs will be spayed or neutered before being made available for adoption.
