When you buy animals from breeders, you are contributing to the overpopulation crisis. Dogs purchased from breeders or pet stores often come from puppy mills, where they are kept in cramped cages, neglected, and abused. Small animals like guinea pigs, snakes, and mice are bred in MASSIVE mills or torn away from their families and homes in the wild, then crammed into tiny, waste-filled cages, where they are deprived of everything that is natural and important to them—often even basic necessities.
