Puppy mills not only reduce the amount of animals that are adopted from shelters, but promotes euthanasia of innocent animals because people turn to pet stores rather than shelters. The best way to describe a puppy mill is walls and walls of cramped wire cages filled with hundreds of dogs. Delilah Jean Knepp is a dog breeder in Indiana and both her and her husband Abner breed tons of dogs and sell them to pet shops all around the world. Sometimes her dogs are bred and are healthy, but a lot of the time her dogs are sick or anxious. The website, www.petshoppuppies.com, details a few registered dogs bought through pet stores that were supplied by the Knepps. We need to stop puppy mills and promote the ADOPTION of shelter dogs.
