Ban Puppy Mill sales all over Minnesota! Help us stop the selling of puppy mill dogs in the following counties Anoka, Ramsey, Rice Becker, Roseau Counties!

“When you buy a pet-store puppy, you know nothing about the health or temperament of the parents. You have no connection to the breeder of the dog, no resource to go to if you have questions or problems a few months or years from now. But perhaps most important, when you buy a pet-store puppy, you contribute to the demand for puppy-mill-bred puppies and add to the cycle of misery of mill-owned breeding dogs.”
― Denise Flaim, Rescue Ink: How Ten Guys Saved Countless Dogs and Cats, Twelve Horses, Five Pigs, One Duck, and a Few Turtles.

What are Puppy Mills?

Puppy mills are an establishment that breeds puppies for sale, typically on an intensive basis and in conditions regarded as inhumane. The inhumane conditions include:

1. Tiny Cages

2. Poor Veterinary Care and Hygiene

3. Nonstop Breeding – Female dogs are treated like puppy-making machines

4. Disregard for Genetics


Why are Puppy Mills thriving?

Puppy mills are able to continue their work because of us! People buy dogs online and through pet stores. Most of the dogs available at pet stores or which are online are supplied my puppy mills. Please make stop supporting puppy mills by adopting dogs form shelters.


What is the Solution?

Banning puppy mills might seem like the best solution but that may not be the case. There are countless ways to breed dogs and sadly passing a law could not stop puppy mills for good. However, what we can do is to simply stop supporting puppy mills and to only buy animals from shelters.

 I will send this petition to governor Mark Dayton to take further care off.

Let’s stop this inhumane act which people do for profit! Stop Puppy Mills! Adopt Don’t Shop!
