I live in the state that has the 2nd most puppy mills in the country. Iowa. I may have come from one. I don't remember. A lot of the puppies here have. There are terrible terrible places. Dogs are kept in tiny cages and get no exercise, love, good food or health care. The puppies are taken away and sold usually around 5 to 6 weeks old. Way to young to taken from mommy. They don't learn all the stuff moms teach their young pups. Plus thet weren't bred to be healthy dogs. They were bred for money.
Many of these places are in old barns or sheds. The cages are stacked on top of each other. Instead of a nice bed to lie on they are in wire cages all day. No one pets them or brushes them. If they get sick they are put down, not brought to the vet.
How can we stop this. Write your elected officials. Tell them to support The PUPS Act – S.395, H.R.847. Do it because you all love your dogs. Because this is animal cruelty at its worse. It is more wide spread then dog fighting and just as cruel. Because the pounds are full of dogs being killed everyday. Because the dogs can't do it, but we can. Please go to this site and educate yourself on puppy mills. https://www.facebook.com/IowaVotersForCompanionAnimals
How much is that puppy in the window. Really it should be at what price of that puppy in the window, in so many other dogs life. Please check out the place that you get your dog from. Please don't support puppy mills. If everyone stops getting their puppies they will stop breeding them. Write your elected officials. Save a dogs or cats life today. Because only we can.
