Meet Billy, Rescued From a Puppy Mill - 2013 CINE Award Winner

by The Humane Society of the United States • 3,008,254 views

Subscribe!: http://bit.ly/humane_subscribe Meet Billy, rescued from a North Carolina puppy mill, and his adopter, Adam. UPDATE: With heavy hearts, we report that Billy unexpectedly passed away over...

Many animals are out there. We can't save them all. But a small change makes a huge difference. Some people out there are selfish and don't even want to help while the majority of us are risking our lives every day to save these creatures so they can be there for the future generation. Same for people. We risk our lives, help, and rescue people everyday. Now ask yourself this question. Would you be one of those people who save others no matter what species.? I am. And I'm only 16. I love my animals and no matter what job field I go into I'm still gonna save others in need. Including precious animals like this.

I will never ever forget Billy he touched me so much I cannot believe it-he totally touched my heart and I instantly fell in love with him-when I heard he passed I was devastated he was so spirited and full of life even after the terrible life he had been given-God Bless you Adam for giving Billy some joy and love, he really loved you and cherished you I could tell-my hope was that Billy forgot the life he had and only remembered those special days he spent with you and your family-Billy will always have a special place in my heart I can just imagine how you feel

Honestly these kind of videos make me cry :( . I feel so bad for these animals and all they've been through. I wonder how it's possible they can still show this amount of love and compassion after the horrible ways they've been treated. I really would love to volunteer, except I'm only twelve, and it's required I'm sixteen. It makes me so sad watching these videos, and I just want to save animals. :,)

I love u Billy! You just make me laugh cause of your derpyhooves face and the way you stick your tongue out

I don't get it! How could the owners of the mill sell such sick dogs? Who was buying them?  And of course, how can people buy cats and dog when there are so many free ones on the streets? All the cats I ever had I picked from the streets. With a healthy life style they grow up so gorgeous!

They sell the puppies from those dogs. Sometimes the beautiful puppies that we see in pet stores come from fathers in horrible conditions like Billy

Little Billy kept in a cage not fit for any animal, especially a dog. I'm so pleased that the person who kept Billy and loves Billy is the person that removed him from that cage. How these dogs are still prepared to love us humans is amazing. He is so sweet 💕

puppy mills are cruel and only used for money. My mom told me about how terrible they are but i never thought there in cages and kennels with nothing but there horrible lives. Along with dog fighting, only for money and entertainment. Breeding and breeding and once they can't reproduce the people throw the mothers in the road to die. Get your dogs spay them care for them, give them a life to enjoy.

My dog was rescued from a puppy mill, she was just a puppy, but lived in a cage alone,she couldn't even stand up..my parents had to carry her...she had been locked in a dark disgusting place since she was born, it's sad. When she was carried out of that place, her face lit up because she knew she was gonna be in a better place. My parents didn't get to go into the area but they saw inside when the door was opened. They took her to a overweight after, turned out she was sick but got over it quickly. She adapted we'll to her new home and a smile and wag of her tail happens every day...it's been a while since she was in that horrible place and I don't think she even remember . I would never give her up for the world, she is really sweet and loves attention. I'm happy I saved at least one dog...but I wish I could of saved more...

this is beautiful.. but does it make any difference at all. making life of few hundreds is nothing compared to millions who suffer. i admire you guys,but don't you thing there should be a more efficient solution for this issue?
Report spam or abuse
Its basically the same for humans. There are millions of us out there in need of a place to stay, health, food, everything. Many of us are selfish but some, we use our lives to rescue others. Yes, there are more animals in puppy mills, cat hoardering, and abandonment. We can't save everyone or every creature but with just a small change we make a big difference. We put our lives at risk to save animals like this to keep them and be able to let the future have thses creatures live upon them. I have five dogs and I had one that passed away years ago but we saved him from a family who hit him with sticks. They were friends with our landlord and they tried to get him back. He was scared. And the person he went to was me. The kids would try to touch him and he would snap. I was their age then. There are some people out there that just want to make people and animals suffer. But the few of us rescue and protect. This is coming for a 16 year old.

Bless you Adam for rescuing Billy.  If each person who is able would just take ONE animal from a shelter and care for it, what a difference it would make in the lives of these loving creatures. We have four dogs, 25 cats and one endangered Desert Tortoise - all rescued and all cared for both physically and emotionally!

Don't mind me, just cutting up some onions.... This is why I only adopt from shelters, and donate when I can.  Every time I walk by the "Puppy Shop" in our mall, selling $1,000+ puppies I just shake my head.  And this place is ALWAYS packed with people buying (not adopting) them.

This video made me cry . So sad to see dogs and any other animal in those conditions. The owner of the mill needs to be put in jail for life so he /she gets to feel what it is like. Keep doing what you are doing because we need more people like you. You are truly amazing!
