PUPPY MILLS ARE TORTURE CHAMBERS
STOP PUPPY MILLS
Puppy mills are torture chambers where animals reside in horrible, inhumane conditions. These breeding machines suffer from severe health problems, and are genetically defective. They are not loved or cared for. They are used by selfish, greedy individuals strictly for profit. Hundreds of thousands of
puppies are bred each year in puppy mills.
The dogs live their entire lives in wire cages and usually several dogs per cage. Some are injured when fights occur in their cramped quarters, others lose feet and legs that get caught in the wire floors of the wire cages that are their permanent homes. It is doubtful their feet ever feel soft, green blades of grass or they ever get to run and play.
Puppy mills are concerned about one thing and that is money. They save quite a bit by not spending adequate money on food, proper shelter, or veterinary care. Often times, the dogs stay cold in the winter and hot in the summer.
Owners generally breed female dogs as soon as they come into heat and continue to breed them every, single heat cycle. Bred until their pitiful, worn out bodies can no longer produce a profit, they are either killed or sold to laboratories. How sad that this usually happens by the time they are only five years old. There are many more horrors associated with these animal breeding factories.
Please be informed. Many of you who buy puppies from your local pet store are in actuality, supporting puppy mills. Yes, it is true. These pet stores tell their customers that their pups come from local breeders or quality breeders. DO NOT BELIEVE THEM! Ask to see their paperwork.
How can we stop puppy mills? Refuse to buy pets from them. PLEASE. If every U.S. citizen would not buy their pets from pet stores, puppy mills would close down permanently! Instead, check out some of your local breeders. Buy your pets from these quality breeders. If you suspect anyone is running a puppy mill, report them immediately.
