Heartwarming dog rescue

We first brought you the story of Billy and Adam on Thursday. 

Adam Parascandola, a member of the Humane Society Animal Rescue team, found Billy during a raid on a puppy mill. Amid the abhorrent conditions, Billy somehow caught Adam's eye. The dog was emaciated, and so neglected that the bars on his cage had been rusted shut, but Adam recognized something special in his eyes.

The story was so powerful we needed to hear how it all happened.  So Adam joined Jane Velez-Mitchell to tell us what happened the day he saved little Billy. 

For more on this story watch Jane Velez-Mitchell weeknights at 7pm ET on HLN.
