|At S'Wheat Rescues we believe that rescuing and rehoming puppymill
victims is our most important mission as a Rescue. While we rescue
Wheatens from many different scenarios, these dogs are the ones that need
our help most and the most rewarding to see. Providing medical attention is
just the beginning. The physical damage can be staggering. The
psychological damage is much worse.
We Rescue these dogs in a variety of ways, sometimes we are contacted by
other Rescues who have had a mill Wheaten turned over to them, sometimes
the millers will contact us directly. Most often we get these dogs by
attending puppymill auctions and buying them to get them out of the cycle
of being puppymill breeders. This can be controversial and we could argue
the merits of buying the dogs both ways but in the end, to us, it comes
down to getting the individual dogs out of puppymill hell and making their
lives better, one dog at a time.
The cost of buying these dogs is the first step in the process but very
rarely is it the most expensive step. When we rescue these dogs they are
invariably in deplorable physical condition: parasite-ridden, underweight,
bred nearly to death. They may have eye infections, missing orbs or vision
impairment caused by ammonia from urine-soaked quarters. Some have torn,
deformed ears and tongues and missing limbs from cage aggression or from
becoming frozen in the cold or sticking to metal surfaces in their unheated
quarters. Females may have hernias or prolapsed uterus's from painful,
extended labor. Their toes may be splayed from walking on wire floors.
Most have rarely, if ever been out of their small, cramped cages and can
have next to no muscle tone. Almost all suffer from chronic, painful ear
infections, some to the point of having lost their hearing. Many have
tattooed ears or thighs. Some have numbers hung around their necks on
chains or ropes that have grown into their flesh. Their dental state is
invariably horrible; most will have painful, infected teeth and gums, some
resulting in systemic infections. Most will lose many if not the majority of
their teeth during dental surgery.
These poor Wheatens have endured years of torture to make money for
uncaring humans, they are the tortured and abused mothers and fathers to
all those cute puppies that are bought every year in petstores around the
It is our mission to help these poor lost
souls and we need YOUR help to do it!
We have set up a fund to be used to both purchase these dogs and to take
care of their veterinary needs after we have done so. The adoption fees on
the mill dogs never cover their care. We have paid up to $600 to rescue a
Wheaten at Rescue (Hope, who had puppies after being rescued) and
veterinary bills for each dog are usually in the $300 - $900 range
depending on their particular needs. As you can see, the typical adoption
fee of $300 does not come close to paying for the care these Wheatens
