Mary Cole's bulldog rescue story....just one of many.....
Thelma was rescued from a puppy mill by Iowa Bullie Rescue. With a
huge amount of help from Basset Rescue, Thelma was transported
here by the “underground railway”. Volunteers would drive her 200
miles and hand her off to the next volunteer who did the same until
she arrived at our door! Thelma had been kept in a wire cage in a
garage and bred over and over again. Her pads were so raw from

was virtually blind from untreated entropia. She was terrified to go
outside as she never had been out of the garage. She had huge
teats and was still lactating. Thelma was spayed, lumps removed

that time she learned to enjoy the outdoors and knew that we loved
