Black and White Sunday #185 – Puppy Mill Survivors

September 17, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

Daisy and Cupcake at Thomas Lake Park

Today is national Puppy Mill Awareness Day. Daisy and Cupcake (above) are both former puppy mill breeding dogs. They were fortunate enough to be rescued before they could be killed, but many puppy mill breeding dogs are not so lucky.

When you buy from a pet store or online, you are buying from a puppy mill. And when you buy from a pet store or from an online website, you are guaranteeing that the parents of that puppy will continue to live in feces, be covered in fleas and suffer untreated medical ailments, including rotting teeth and jaws. You are also guaranteeing they will be killed by shotgun or through torture.

Please don’t buy a puppy from a pet store. Please don’t buy a puppy from the internet.
Adopt. There are so many dogs in need. So many of them are in shelters or with a rescue, and 90% of the time, through no fault of their own.

When puppy millers stop seeing sales, they will stop, but in order for that to happen you need to stop too.

    Sad we are treated like a commodity

    May we live to see an end to the puppy mills.

    How timely, I rescued a puppy mill breeding dog on Friday! She was a hot mess and has numerous emotional issues. But even in the two days I’ve had her, she’s made some amazing strides. I’m completely smitten and look forward to her becoming a well adjusted dog. ❤

    I hate it when I hear of “dog owners” doing this for money! Poor Mum – she must’ve been so tired and her body harassed from producing so much!
