Puppy mills are factories that mass produce dogs by breeding the same pair of dogs as much as possible. When dogs can no longer reproduce they are either sold or killed. Most pet shops buy their puppies from puppy mills. If those cute little puppies in the pet shops don't sell they are sent back to the puppy mills to start reproducing. A lot of people are unaware of what puppy mills are. Everyone needs to know how puppy mills are run and the squalid environment animals in puppy mills have to live in. By taking this pledge you will help shut down puppy mills because it will lead to fewer puppies brought from pet shops and therefore less profit for puppy mills.
