Put an End to Puppy Mills!
Put an End to Puppy Mills!
Imagine being locked a cage all your life and never coming out. Imagine only ever knowing that you are only wanted to have kids. If you can no longer serve this purpose you are killed. This is life in a Puppy Mill. Puppy mills need to be stopped because all puppies deserve to be free, loved, and healthy. But, what is a puppy mill?
Puppy mills are formed when licensed or not licensed breeders take dogs for the sole purpose of just reproducing for profit. But just because breeders have a license does not mean they are responsible. Here is a list of some occurrences of a puppy mill:
- When parents can no longer have kids, they are abandoned or killed by the breeder.
- The puppies get little to no human contact
- Because they get almost no human contact, when they’re adopted, they are shy and sometimes aggressive.
- They get either no food or unhealthy food
- They get either no water or dirty water
- Their crates are stacked on top of one another
- These dogs live with feces and urine on them their whole lives.
- Their hair mats over time with the conditions they are living in
- Newborn puppies have disabilities and deformities because the parents were sick when conceiving the child
- No one helps the puppies when they are sick or injured.
- Lastly, it is inhumane for any animal to be held captive against their will!
- According to the Humane Society, 10,000 puppy mills are estimated to be active and running in the United States.
- When their feces get in their hair, their hair becomes matted (so tangled that it is pulling at the skin). This is like having someone pinch and twist your skin and never let go for your whole life until your hair is unmatted. The only way to unmat a dog's hair after they have gone throughout a puppy mill, is by shaving them done to the bone.
- According to the Humane Society, over 194,000 dogs are kept just for the purpose of breeding in USDA-licensed facilities. Unfortunately, a licence does not always mean the breeder is of good quality.
- According to the Humane Society, about 2 million puppies are sold each year that come from a puppy mill.

A little money and loving support can go a long way!
In conclusion, the conditions that these animals are enduring are not okay and must be remedied. If you do simple acts such as being aware of he places you are in for any activity that you think might be a puppy mill, say something! This change can also happen if we raise awareness about the problem of puppy mills everywhere and if you can chip in any funds to organizations dedicated to ending puppy mills such as the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), and The Atlanta Humane Society. The fate of these innocent creatures rests in your hands!
