THE PLEDGE: I know that puppy mills are places of unspeakable and heartbreaking animal suffering.
By signing this pledge I commit to help end puppy mills by:
1. Thinking carefully before getting a dog.
2. Choosing wisely and only from an ethical source such as a humane society, SPCA or rescue group.
3. Loving the dog I have chosen deeply and for life.
4. Educating my friends and family about puppy mills.
If you encounter a puppy mill in your search for a dog you will probably want to rescue one of the dogs.
By taking the following actions you can help shut the place down and rescue all of the dogs from a life of suffering and misery:
--Take photos of the facility and the individual dogs, especially those that appear sick or injured
--Document everything – how many dogs you saw, what breeds, what the facility smelled like, what it sounded like
--Contact your local humane society, SPCA or police immediately and provide them with all of your documentation.
