Here at Dogster we believe that you can never denounce the evils of puppy mills enough. They are bad, no good, and wrong. We want them to go away forever.
In an effort to continue raising awareness about the deplorable conditions of puppy mills and encourage people to adopt their fur friends from shelters, the San Francisco SPCA has teamed up with the Jullien Brothers and BBDO San Francisco to create this charming and informative little video about why you shouldn’t purchase puppies from puppy mills.
Beneath the video’s cuteness lies a very serious message. While purchasing a dog online may seem fun and convenient, the truth is that most Internet puppies come from mills that don’t give a damn about the welfare of their animals. Adult dogs are bred and bred and bred until they can no longer produce offspring, at which point they are callously destroyed. Their puppies are confined and overcrowded, exposed to the elements, malnourished, and dehydrated.
But while all of us Dogsters are well aware of the sinister puppy mill cycle, a lot of people just don’t know the story behind the doggie in the browser window. Even in San Francisco — a city committed to social awareness — 30 percent of dogs purchased in the city came from puppy mills! For shame.
Do your part and help spread the word. It’s as easy as showing someone this video.
