What are Puppy Mills?
Puppy mills are commercial breeding facilities that mass-produce dogs for sale through pet stores, or directly to consumers through classified ads or the Internet.
Dogs suffering in puppy mills live in horrid conditions; often jammed into crates with other dogs, while those crates are stacked onto more crates. Their crates are poorly kept, forcing puppies to live in their own feces.
Thankfully, places like the National Mill Dog Rescue, Northshore Animal League, and the Humane Society have made it their mission to save dogs from these sort of horrible situations, provide them with appropriate medical attention, give them love and attention, and find them forever homes.
