Ever wondered what kind of life puppy mill dogs and future pet store puppies lead? Here we tell you about their misery and what all of us can do to end uncontrolled breeding, overpopulation and killing.
Isn’t this the perfect photo to show the world what family life is all about? Such happy pups with their proud parents!
also known as puppy farms, are factories where puppies are made, put on a
conveyor belt, packaged and shipped out to bricks and mortar and online
pet stores all over the country. Although, at first, they may look and
act cute, many puppy mill pups have latent behavior issues and serious
health problems brought about by animal abuse.
Also, let’s not forget the breeding parents left behind to endure a cruel and miserable existence, which is all they have known and will ever know.
Deplorable conditions where puppy mill breeding dogs spend their life
These dogs remain outdoors, come rain or come shine
If there is a pet store near you that has joined the Puppy Friendly Pet Stores program, it is one of over 2,000 across the country that have pledged to never sell puppies again. Some have even transitioned to allow local humane and rescue societies to hold adoption events in their store so that puppies and adult dogs can go to loving homes. Kudos to these business leaders for embracing change!
We encourage you to support stores that have joined the movement to end the exploitation of puppy mill dogs and purchase all your pet supplies from ones that display the sign, “We Love Puppies, That’s Why We Don’t Sell Them.”
Cramped, unsocialized and potentially dangerous
Pet store puppies are usually sold quickly. If a pup does not sell fast, the price is reduced, and further reduced until someone eventually buys it.
The lower the price, the less profit the store makes. Next time the store will order fewer puppies. If pet stores buy fewer pups, the breeder will produce fewer pups. And, one day, we hope that all puppy mills will be a thing of the past!
In the coming months we will be adding pages to showcase more topics related to the treatment of animals. For now we invite you to read some basic facts we have compiled regarding Factory Farming. Please click on those words to view.
One way for us to join forces and help the No Kill Advocacy Center pursue this aspect of animal abuse is to acquire a unique, handcrafted glass pendant from our collection of Gift Ideas For Her. Please click on the words Gift Catalog to view. We are proud to make them available to our visitors. Enjoy looking at them, giving them and wearing them!

We have just discovered a great site about music that has been specially created about, for and with animals, and wanted to share this with you.
Laurel Canyon Animal Company is the name of the record label and Skip Haynes invites animal communicators to work with him on a number of musical projects.
One of our favorite CDs is More Songs To Make Dogs Happy and really like the tracks Squeaky Bark, Whistle Song and Unconditional Love.
