Educate others about the reality of puppy mills and the dogs they purchase from pet stores and the internet.

Puppy mills are large scale operations that force "breeder dogs" to produce litter after litter to support consumer demand for purebred pets.

These puppies are sold in pet stores or over the Internet, storefronts that mask the suffering, disease, malnutrition, and loneliness of puppy mills. Even the puppies themselves are prone to a variety of illnesses. Some die within days or weeks of purchase.

Most people are unaware that when they buy a purebred puppy they are often supporting a cruel and inhumane industry. By choosing not to buy your next pet or any pet supplies from retail stores or internet sites that sell live dogs or cats, you are directly helping to end this cycle of cruelty.

You can help stop this suffering. Please sign our pledge to stop puppy mills: https://community.hsus.org/campaign/ca_puppy_mills_pledge?source=gahift

1. Puppy mill dogs often have health and behavior problems.

2. Puppy mill dogs are raised in poor conditions and lack social interaction.
