Puppy Mills - The Scourge of Responsible Comanion Animal Ownership

Throughout the hills and valleys of Pennsylvania, hundreds of puppy mills exist and operate for one reason: greed. It is estimated that many puppy mills earn in excess of $500,000 annually and, rest assured, very little of this money is spent on the dogs imprisoned at these facilities. Given the earnings potential it's not surprising that many kennels continue to function even when the day-to-day activities do not comply with the state and federal governmental standards, guidelines and laws. 

Brimming with widespread corruption and fraudulent practices, both canines and consumers suffer at the expense of the puppy mill industry - a network comprised of unscrupulous commercial breeders who continue to stoop to new lows to insure an uninterrupted flow of income based upon a lack of conscience and a love of money.

Frequently housed in small, cramped and filthy wire cages, the dogs of the mills live lives of misery and are forced to produce litter after litter in a Pennsylvania climate that guarantees freezing cold winters and hot sweltering summers. Supposedly operating under the guidelines issued by the PA Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, many of the mills are never inspected and even those found in violation of providing less than the most minimum standard of care possible to the dogs continue to operate with little or no interference by state and federal agencies. 


Boycott STORES THAT SELL PUPPIES!  Do not shop there, do not buy your supplies or food there, never grace their premises with your presence and tell your friends, family and colleagues to do the same.

Only by joining together and collectively rebuking every aspect of the puppy mill industry will the millers ever lose their desire to expoit dogs for the sole purpose of greed.
