One-Minute Mission: Inside a Puppy Factory

Posted by  peta2 staff ,  

Ever wonder where the cute, adorable puppies at the pet store come from?

Most of them come from puppy mills, which breed hundreds of thousands of dogs every year in horrible conditions in order to supply pet stores.

Mother dogs are treated like breeding machines and are killed or abandoned once they stop pumping out enough puppies to make money.

Every time someone purchases a dog from a puppy mill, he or she is supporting this:

    Both of my dogs were rescues. I WILL NEVER BUY A DOG OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ANIMAL, NEVER! Hate is such a strong word to say, so I will say I dislike any people that treats animals like this… is very hard to watch but only we can make it stop!

    I have one dog with came from a shelter which came from a puppy mill rescue! The shelter had seized the puppy mill, and took over the dogs, then put them up adoption! I was un-educated on what a puppy mill even was, until i got my dog! I feel amazing everyday knowing that I helped to save one. Whenever I meet someone who wants a pet, I tell them about what this horrible crime a puppy mill is, and how amazing shelter dogs! We are currently at two rescues, and hope to grow our four-legged family even more!

      Hate is a very strong word. But, I strongly agree! People who do this to these sweet innocent animals have no heart, I urge people to take action and give animals hope! <3 Do not buy animals Adopt animals. We are just like animals so when we hurt another we are hurting ourselves. Aho Mitakuye Oyasin. It keeps me wondering how these people go to sleep at night… Namaste <3

    my heat goes of to the people that rescue the dogs from puppy mill and for the people that run puppy mills we should put them in a cage and treat and make them do what the make the puppy do and see how the like that I know the ans the would not like it at all.It is sad what some people would do to animals
