Rule #45: Puppy Mills

Puppy mill, puppy farm, puppy factory, call it what you will. It’s basically a commercial dog factory that is operated with an emphasis upon profits above animal welfare and is often in substandard conditions disregarding the well-being of dogs in their care.

Here’s the facts:

  • The parents of puppy mill dogs are abused their entire lives until they are no longer productive and ultimately destroyed
  • They suffer a variety of horrific health issues such as bleeding or swollen paws, feet falling through the wire cages, severe tooth decay, ear infections, dehydration, and lesions on their eyes, which often lead to blindness.
  • Almost all pet store animals come from puppy mills. At time of purchase, consumers are given incorrect lineage about the dog’s health, breed, and breeder.
  • Buying a dog on line could very likely be supporting a puppy mill
  • Every year, retail pet stores across America sell 500,000 dogs, while 5 to 7 million dogs enter shelters

Each year millions of Canadian companion animals are destroyed
due to the greed of commercial puppy mills, the ignorance of back yard breeders and irresponsible pet owners. There must be public awareness & compassion to end the suffering of the voiceless. People must think and make the right choice when looking to add a pet to your home. Instead of just doing it to shut the kids up or make up for shitty parenting.
Perhaps we should start from scratch. Kill every dog in the world except for 2. One Yorkie, and one Pit bull. Light some candles, put on some Barry White, give them a little time alone and the result will be the dog of the New World. I admit I didn’t put a lot of thought into that so I’ll put it up to a vote before I send out the dog killers.
In the new world, there will be no puppy mills.
