Rescue Rover

Some people say there's a dirty little secret happening in our own backyard and it deals with the animal breeding industry. It has to do with how that cute little puppy becomes your best friend.

There are hundreds of dog breeders in the state of Nebraska. All legally operating with a state and for some a USDA license. Most of them are caring, kind animal breeders. But one animal rights group here in Nebraska says there are a few you need to know about. They are called “puppy mills.” They are facilities that leave some dogs, without health care, malnourished and full of disease. Hearts United for Animals says it's a system based on greed; the cheaper and faster the puppies can be bred, the bigger profits for the breeder.

Hearts United, actually rescues the unwanted mill dogs. The ones who are either too sick or who simply cannot be bred any more.
