— Some of the 88 dogs rescued from a suspected puppy mill at a rural Jones County property are almost ready for their forever homes.

The animals are being examined and treated by veterinarians at the Wake County SPCA before being eligible for adoption or foster care. Adoption applications for the pups begin April 2.

    Glad to hear the Wake County SPCA's got them ready for homes, but I couldn't help but notice that on the other side of the page are several classified ads for puppies and sadly, for an adult dog.

    Every "oops" litter means that an animal already in a shelter will not get a home. Don't breed your pet because you want another just like him - it won't be the same animal. Don't breed to show the kids where babies come from - babies come from women, BTW, so make one of those and have a home birth. And don't refuse to spay or neuter your pet because you're afraid they'll suffer mentally - if they understood, they'd probably be relieved to know that risk is no longer on the table!

    Put the puppy mills out of business by adopting from a shelter or rescue. Then put the shelters out of business by speutering your pet.
