Puppy Mill Article

I just read a great article about puppy mills. For those of you who aren't aware of the extent of the cruelty and neglect that goes on in these places, please take a few minutes to click on the link below and enlighten yourselves..

If you absolutely have to buy a pedigree pup instead of adopting a homeless stray, at least have the decency to make sure he comes from a responsible humane breeder and not a puppy mill. Pet shops will lie and tell you their pups come from good breeders. This is not necessarily true. Do more research. Pet shops get their pups from any source. They don't care how the pups' poor overused parents are treated. Always check on the parent dogs first. Ask yourself, where did these puppies come from? i'm sure you'll love your new pup, but does anyone love his parents?
