In only two week, more than half of the 607 dogs rescued from a commercial breeder in West Quebec have been adopted, says the Humane Society International/Canada. In September, more than 500 dogs were rescued from a commercial operation near Campbell’s Bay known as Paws “R” Us. It wasn’t until the Quebec government gained custody of the dogs that they could be adopted and by then many of them had given birth and the number had grown to 607. On November 24th, the Humane Society started the adoption process and they had a huge response. It is said that there are going to be standards on how many times a day a dog should eat, how big his cage should be, how many times he should have exercise per day, etc.
