There are millions of shelter dogs waiting for homes in the U.S. - enough for every family who wants one. But sadly, backyard breeders keep on forcing dogs to have more and more puppies, which only adds to pet overpopulation.
Many of these pups are purchased, but some of them end up in the shelter system themselves.
Rescuers at Villalobos Rescue Center in Louisiana got a tragic delivery last week - a litter of newborn puppies dumped by a man who only plans to breed more.
"A man rolled up to our location in Assumption Parish in his shiny new Cadillac and asked us to come and 'pick up some puppies he didn't want,'" the rescue posted on Facebook.
