Help Stop Puppy Mill Abuse

When it comes to puppy breeders, you have to wonder why we even allow them to be in business. I know there are plenty of kind and generous breeders who take good care of their pups, ensuring their safety and protection, making sure they go to good homes, and trying to make a living; I don’t mean to disrespect these individuals. But between the gross numbers of puppy mills where dogs are treated horribly and the numbers of overpopulation we face when it comes to dogs (as well as other companion animals, particularly cats), isn’t it time that we phased out this whole “purebred” business and instead focused on adopting the animals we already have?
