Disabled Dachshund Found in Puppy Mill

I thought my heart would break reading this story about Rainbow the dachshund who was paralyzed and the breeder kept making her have puppies. This makes me very, very, very sad. I'm going to open up my piggy bank and send her new, kind caretakers some money so they can help her feel better again. If you have some spare change, I know it would help Rainbow.

Here is the article and where you can send donations.

This makes me furious! People who do things like this should be "severely" punished.

I know, Andrea... there is absolutely no excuse what-so-ever for this!
