The Puppy Mill Plague The breeding and living conditions in puppy mills are ethically wrong, and stronger legislation is needed to ensure the protection of dogs that are being bred and raised for human companionship. Dogs are bred at a greater frequency than they naturally should be, which creates health problems for both the mothers and their offspring. Housing conditions at puppy mills are almost unilaterally overcrowded, and dogs may live outdoors entirely exposed to the elements. Dogs that come from puppy mills often experience social problems. Because of the cruelty that prevails at puppy mills across the country, animal rights groups work diligently to promote new legislation the ban inhumane practices at puppy mills.
Not just of the breeding dogs in the farm but most of their puppies as well. As cute as the puppy in the pet shop may seem you should always buy from a proper breeder or an animal shelter this way you will know that you are not contributing towards puppy mills and killing innocent dogs. This is one dog that was lucky enough to be saved from a puppy

This would help limit the problem to where it is only within the country, therefore lowering the amount of work that would have to be done in order to track down the puppy mills and begin to work towards eliminating the problem. While there are many that disagree with puppy mills, there are those that don’t find them all that bad because not all commercial breeding fit the harsh criteria of puppy mills. Although there are many inhumane puppy mills, there are also some that are humane, taking care of the puppies, giving them proper nutrition, exercise, and care. This may be true; however the likelihood of these kinds of puppy mills is rare and not prominent enough to consider puppy mills
These operations typically have substandard conditions and little to no regard for the animal's welfare or safety. So I ask, is the current legislation effective enough to eliminate those who neglect puppies for their own profit? Legislation regarding
They deplete the land, are very costly, are expensive to the tax payer, create unhealthy animals for the future and crowd pounds causing the stay period of an animal to be re-homed dramatically shorter, which ends in euthanasia; costing more money to society. This repetitive cycle needs to be cut short otherwise dogs will be seen as a burden to our lives. What can you do to eliminate puppy mills? There are petitions online http://www.closepuppyfactories.org/ to pledge your support, new legislations have been implemented, ‘Oscars Law’ http://www.oscarslaw.org/ & do not support puppy mills in any form. Buying online, from the pet shop or even a simple news advertisement is justifying the puppy mills actions.
They understood that if there was guard dogs surrounding the camp at night the need to have human security watching their camps was unnecessary allowing the humans to save energy for other important tasks such as hunting for food.

If you saw a Pit Bull being walked by its owner at your local park, how would you react? Would you cringe at the thought of the monstrous thing and stay out of its way, or would you be compelled to ask if you may pet this wonderful, misunderstood creature? The general public would be afraid of the dog. However, the properly educated portion of the human race knows better than to conform to popular belief and succumb to the mass hysteria regarding this breed without first doing research of their own. Most people shudder at the thought or sight of a Pit Bull and consider them vicious atrocities, but I will show that Pit Bulls are innocent and really are just misunderstood.
The extreme amount of money spent on pets in America is getting out of hand. This money should go to animals that have a chance at life, animals that need love and affection. If you truly care about your sick animals you wouldn’t allow them to be in
Shandel McIntyre Animal Cruelty Animal cruelty is a growing problem in today’s society, and needs to be dealt with. Animal cruelty is happening in many parts of the world in Canada. Many towns, and cities have puppy mills. Puppy mills are a facility of high- volume breeding for small animals. Animals are pets, either household or wildlife, and either way they should not be physically or verbally abused.
