Note To My Critics:

The links to the many sites that I've included contain information that I believe to be relevant, be it the graphics, the videos, the undercover investigations, etc. . Exposing & and ending the brutality and savagery inflicted on the non-human animals is what I am focused on. I strongly believe that every voice against animal abuse/exploitation is of value and -and- collectively we have the power to end it. I am here for the animals, not for anyone's approval and for that I make no apologies. ** I do not promote violence towards humans. ___________________________________________________ Bookmark and Share

Pet Stores & Puppy Mills: A Cruel Partnership


Photobucket
What is a Puppy Mill?
Photobucket
Puppy mills are commercial kennels that mass-produce dogs in squalid, overcrowded cages, without proper veterinary care, shelter from heat or cold, or adequate food and water. Substandard care and attention are given to these dogs since puppy mill owners care more about profit than the health of the dog. Cat breeding occurs under similar conditions to supply pet stores with kittens..

Health and Behavior Problems

Photobucket
Puppy mill dogs often suffer from starvation and are forced to sit all day and sleep in their own excrement. Even though pet store puppies may look healthy at first sight, many are incubating disease at the time of sale, including the deadly Parvo virus, parasites and skin diseases. Many also have serious congenital defects like eye and hip problems. These dogs are also prone to serious behavior problems since they've been confined to cages without human interaction during their first crucial months of life..

Pet Store Connection

Photobucket
Of the roughly 150,000 dogs and cats that end up in Washington shelters each year, more than half are put to death because there aren't enough homes to go around (nearly half are puppies and kittens). Puppy mills carelessly add to the overpopulation crisis by selling over 500,000 dogs each year through America's pet stores..
Photobucket
Roughly 90% of puppies in pet stores come from puppy mills. If people chose to adopt puppies and kittens rather than purchase them at pet stores, commercial breeders would have no outlet to sell their "product"..

Stop Puppy Mills

Registration Papers-No Guarantee

Photobucket
The American Kennel Club themselves say that they "cannot guarantee the quality or health of dogs in its registry." Well-known dog behaviorist, Brain Kilcommons has said, "Mixed-breed dogs are what nature intended of dogs, and are on the whole, healthier, often more intelligent, of more even disposition, and live longer lives than many purebred dogs"..

Help Stop Puppy Mills

Photobucket
• Do not purchase animals from pet stores that do business with puppy mills and cold-hearted backyard breeders

• Adopt a rescued animal from your local animal shelters

• Discourage others from purchasing animals from pet stores which will make more money for the cruel puppy mill operation and continue to breed miserable lives for these innocent animals

• Spread awareness about the facts of puppy mills to your family, friends and community

Please help end this cycle of misery. Give these innocent animals hope that there is a life without fear or pain waiting for them.. If not you, who? If not now, when?
