Meet Billy, Rescued From a Puppy Mill – 2013 CINE Award Winner

I’m Adam Parascandola and I’m a member of the Animal Rescue Team The first part of the story takes
place in Jones County North Carolina we responded there to assist with a
puppy mill you know we do so many of these puppy mill raids and what we saw here
was pretty typical of what we see
everywhere just a complete disregard for their emotional or physical health so one of the buildings on the
property was what looked to be a small shed and I at
first thought it was just storage shed the smell was just horrendous in there I immediately saw a cage with a small chihuahua in it and I went to try and open the cage and the latch was actually rusted shut this was his whole life really I don’t
think he’d come out of that cage in years what little food and water he had was probably just given through the bars [dogs barking] his whole bottom jaw I mean at least
half of it was missing I mean he was just a skeleton under is long fur all of the dogs that we get out of these
rescue efforts they want and need love and attention but when I got
this little guy out he laid his head on my shoulder and at
that moment I felt responsible for him and I felt
responsible for making sure that he was never gonna have to suffer like that
again you know this little guy despite all he’d
been through really very quickly his whole
personality came out and you know it was so
wonderful to be able to see what a character he is Meet Billy! [laughter] he makes me laugh every single day I just love him please be a hero for the animals make a special gift to support rescues
like this and all of the work that we do
