Beware of puppy mills
I’m trying to get the word out about “puppy mills” in the community. Puppy mills house dogs in overcrowded and often unsanitary conditions without adequate health care, food, water, or human company.
Puppy mills can be thought of as breeding facilities that produce large numbers of pure bred puppies. Some dogs are very unfortunate for they are forced to live in puppy mills for their entire lives to produce more puppies. Sadly, these dogs are killed once their reproductive capacity wanes. Many puppy millers don’t take care of these animals. They keep them outdoors with five to six dogs per cage.
Shockingly, puppies are sometimes kept away from their mothers.
Puppies that are not purebred will likely be killed off for they are considered as “mistakes” to the millers.
These problems include over breeding, poor quality of food and shelter, lack of socialization with humans, minimal veterinary care, inbreeding, over crowded cages and the killing of unwanted animals.
These dogs have made no mistake other than being born into this terrible system. This needs to be stopped.
