Puppy Mills SUCK

Every year millions of dogs and cats are surrendered to animal shelters. Why? Why are there so many unwanted animals euthanized every year,while puppy mills continue to thrive in every state? Hundreds of these animals are forced to re-produce over and over again.  So…maybe you believe sex is good. What’s wrong with dogs having a lot of sex and maybe making a little money along the way? 

The Human Society states puppy mills have been around for decades. They continue to thrive because they prey on unwitting consumers who are smitten by too-cute-for-words puppies in pet store windows and on legitimate-seeming websites. Puppy mills house dogs in shockingly poor conditions. After their fertility wanes, breeding animals are often killed, abandoned or sold cheaply to another mill to try and get “one more litter” out of the dog. The annual result of all this breeding is millions of puppies, many with behavior and/or health problems.

So….let’s just think about this for a minute shall we?  Hmmmmmm…..let’s see…….mmmmm….maybe I shouldn’t buy a puppy from a breeder or pet store. MAYBE I should go to my local shelter, after I think about this decision very very carefully, and make a long-term committment to the longevity and well-being of my new “forever” pet. 

That would be a great idea.
