Inside a Puppy Mill

Puppy mills are mass dog breeding facilities that have been around for decades. They continue to thrive because they prey on consumers who are smitten by cute puppies in pet stores or websites. However, behind the scenes lies the puppy mill where the parents of these puppies are suffering terrible lives often for many years. These dogs live their entire lives in cages, continually bred, without human companionship, little or no medical care, poor quality food, and sometimes never seeing the light of day. They can endure intense heat in the summer and freezing cold in the winter. Cages are stacked one on top of the other while the cage on the bottom receives feces and urine from the cage above, the paws of dogs get stuck in the wiring damaging the leg to the point of losing it, and the pads of their feet bleed from cuts. Most of these dogs have horrific illnesses including respiratory infections, worms, hair loss, tooth decay, blindness and loss of hearing. Some dogs can lose their bottom jaw due to severe dental disease. Not only do they suffer physical pain, but emotional and mental torture as well. Some dogs are in a box or cage their entire lives which causes intense mental instability and may never recover if ever rescued. Only half of the puppies born in these conditions survive. The surviving puppies enter the pet stores or the internet for sale. If you are considering buying from a pet store or internet, think about the parents of this puppy. 99 PERCENT of puppies in pet stores come from puppy mills and the pet store owner will lie about it.

I'm not asking, I'm begging, PLEASE DO NOT buy from pet stores or the internet.

Please do not buy while thousands suffer and die!
