PUPPY MILLS

Breed Greed and Misery – Approximately 500,000 puppies per year are bred in puppy mills, facilities known for their filthy, overcrowded conditions and the unhealthy animals they produce.Most of the puppies sold in pet stores come from puppy mills. Purchasing pet store animals means not only supporting the cruel puppy mill industry but also taking a home away from one of the 4 to 5 million unwanted shelter animals killed each year. Because of the inbreeding and filthy conditions common to puppy mills, they often produce animals with serious health problems which typically result in hefty vet fees. On top of this, pet stores generally do not socialize their animals. The puppies may consequently develop behavioral problems which do not make them ideal as pets. Pet shops dispose of unsold animals in, at times, unscrupulous ways.

On behalf of all the dogs and puppies imprisoned in puppy mills, please put an end to this heartbreak. Unfortunately, these dogs and puppies cannot speak for their rights and their cries are unheard except by those inflicting their pain. They need us to speak out for them and save them from being victims of this life whose fate is torture and ultimately death.
While the Humane Society of the United States and the S.P.C.A. are doing a wonderful job of locating and shutting down puppy mills, more needs to be done. Animal cruelty is against the law in all states but currently there are only individual state laws in the United States banning puppy mills.

We the undersigned implore you to take into consideration passing a criminal law which bans puppy mills nationwide and imposes stricter penalties to those who break this law. We need to stop this unnecessary suffering of these animals who share our world.

Please hear my plea and the plea of so many others who speak on behalf of these dogs and puppies who cannot speak for themselves. Leave the breeding to those who do it for the love of dogs and not the love of greed.

Perhaps if the United States passes this law, other countries will follow and we can put an end to this worldwide cruelty forever. Please give them the life they deserve and so desperately cry out for.
