We have all seen cute fluffy puppies behind the glass window of a pet store. It is hard not to smile at their irresistibly innocent puppy eyes and their little paws. However, behind the glass display at pet stores and their title claiming to be "local breeders" and "USDA approved", pet stores have been making profits selling puppies from puppy mills.
Puppy mill is a large-scale commercial dog breeding facility built solely to profit from sales of puppies. In order to make the female dogs more profitable, they are given little to no breaks in between pregnancies and are forced to be separated from their babies so that the puppies can be sold to pet stores. Females dogs that can no longer reproduce babies are often killed or abandoned. Dogs are caged and given very limited space and lack of veterinary care with their feces and urine piled up, causing a list of serious health problems.
California became the first state to ban sale of puppy mills. If puppy mills are banned in Texas, it would be a huge step toward animal rights and open doors for Americans who want to adopt healthy dogs fairly!
