Why Are Some States Havens for Puppy Mills?

Where does your state stand on puppy mills? While many people think they are already illegal, that’s not the case. Federal standards are far from what most people consider to be humane and are poorly enforced. States have the authority to enact and enforce higher standards of humane care for commercially bred animals, yet 21 states still do not have any laws regulating large-scale dog breeders, making them magnets for puppy mills.

The Latest On

This is how your "reputable breeder" BREEDS DOGS. There is no such thing as a reputable breeder. Anyone that profits from breeding dogs, while thousands die in shelters, is pathetic. Adopt, don't shop.

Dog from a puppy mill. Dogs in puppy mills are there to reproduce, the puppies go to PET STORES. You should NEVER buy your dog at your pet store, there are SO many dogs and cats (and other animals) that need a loving home. You can go to dogsindanger.com (which is an incredibly sad website) but you can save a life, you can also rescue a dog from a puppy mill.
