Wednesday, April 6, 2011

Why dont people realize how horrible puppy  mills are ? Everone just needs to think about this. What if you were the smalll helpless puppies in these horrible conditions, like cold metal cages with around 7-10 dogs in ONE cage, no medical treatment; so you are always itching and whinning because your body  hurts, no decent water to quench your dry mouth; dogs need at least 1 cup (8oz) per five pounds per DAY, the dogs dont get NEARLY that amount of clean purified water.
Just think about how YOU would feel if you were in the mills.
Comment below and let us know how you would feel...


  • 4-5 million animals die in shelters every year (roughly 11,000 every day.)
  • 20% of animals in shelters are purebred.
  • It’s estimated that 4 million dogs are bred in puppy mills every year.
  • There are nearly 6,000 USDA-licensed commercial kennels in the U.S. (and untold numbers of unlicensed.)

Why dogs are important to society

The Animal Welfare Act
The Animal Welfare Act (AWA), a federal law passed in 1966, regulates certain animal activities, including commercial dog and cat breeding. The AWA defines the minimum standards of care for dogs, cats and certain other species of animals bred for commercial resale and exhibition. It also requires that certain commercial breeders be licensed and routinely inspected by the United State Department of Agriculture (USDA). However, violations regularly go unpunished, and there are innumerable loopholes and faults within the current system. For example, only animal-breeding businesses considered "wholesale" operations—those that sell animals to stores for resale—are overseen by the USDA. The AWA does not apply to facilities that sell directly to the public, including the thousands that now do so via the Internet. Read more about the Animal Welfare Act

Living Conditions

The dogs are all stuffed into small crates. They look thin and undernoursihed. When they are shipped off to pet stores, most of them die on the way. The dogs that get rescued have medical and social problems.
More info from fact is, it is impossible for one person, or two people, or three to adequately care for hundreds of animals, to groom them, trim their nails, medicate them and make sure they are getting the attention they need. Most of the animals are kept in wire cages off the ground so that it's easier for the waste matter and so forth to pass through the cage. Generally, underneath the cage is not clean. Diseases and mites very often go undetected and untreated. In addition to the fact that the animals literally live on wire, they live without human contact.  Other info, go to the website above!


Please help stop this horrible treatment.

Facts about Puppy Mills.

Facts copyright:
1.Puppy mills usually house dogs in overcrowded and often unsanitary conditions, without adequate health care, food, water or human company.
2.The breeding dogs are bred as often as possible to increase profits and probably will never see life outside of the puppy mill. The owners rarely pay attention to the health or happiness of the dogs.
3.Puppy mills often generate health problems for the dogs they are selling. The puppies may have immediate health problems such as respiratory infections or pneumonia and some even have genetic diseases that show up years later.

Excellent Story about Puppy mills

London by Mati Hanish
"I was 12 when I decided I wanted to get a dog. I had my heart set on a Maltese and we found a breeder that had the little girl I wanted. When we got there, it was an older farm house, but I loved the little puppy and I knew I wanted to take her home with me. She was very dirty and very shy. She didn't even want to move, but I just thought that she was scared to meet new people. We asked to see the parents and the breeder was like “NO!” instantly. We also wanted to see their breeding operations, but that also was a no. We should have taken these as signs, but we took the puppy home.
London warmed up to us fairly quickly and I grew a strong bond with her. A few months later, she started getting super sick and we had tons of vet bills. She just kept getting sicker and sicker and nothing would help her. It turns out she had diseases and her lungs didn't develop, so when she got pneumonia she ended up passing away.
I had only had London for about a year, and she was only 1 and a half; when she passed. I believe she was from a puppy mill and I want to raise awareness to everyone buying a puppy."
