Puppy Mills are being exposed more and more and many shut down.Internet mills will be regulated and hopefully people who want dogs will take responsibility when noting abuse and neglect when visiting a puppy mill.
Cesar Milan went to several puppy mills with agents who took action citing the owners and removing several dogs. Cesar rehabilitated the dogs, provided the vet care they needed and found forever loving homes for these dogs.

One of my beloved dogs was a victim of puppy mill abuse. She was so undernourished that it wasn't even possible to tell she was pregnant until she gave birth to three puppies. One died, one had pneumonia. Abuse abuse takes many forms, but they all have one thing in common: disregard for life. Please help to put an end to the horrors of puppy mills.

There is no excuse/reason for puppy mills except for the money they bring in. There is no caring for the animals they breed. Just the almighty buck. I have signed and am very glad to do so to insure that there will be no need for any more petitions to crush the puppy mill business.

These petitions make a huge difference according to a news story on Al Jazeera English News channel. They were talking about the "Free Yupi " campaign for the polar bear in Mexico. They said activists have been working on that for many years, but it was not until the international online petitions with some 80,000 person input came into being that authorities have begun to sit up and listen.

Signed, commented on and noted. It's embarrassing to be from Missouri, one of the puppy mill capitals of the US, where MO citizens voted on and passed a measure to require more supervision of puppy mills, inspections, regulations, etc. and then the legislature of MO took over and changed it all. I will not vote for any Senator or Representative that took part in this. I'm disgusted with MO politicians. But, I do want the animals to be helped and not abused. Thanks Cher.

Puppy mill owners need to not only be FINED HEAVILY IT SHOULD ALSO BE COMPULSORY LAW THAT THEY MUST WORK AT AN ANIMAL RESCUE CENTER FOR AT LEAST 1 YEAR AS PART OF THEIR SENTENCE! 1 day a week might just open their eyes. Although how they do not see the brutality their puppie
Cause is beyond my comprehension!

Done, thanks, Cher. Embarrassingly, MO has been know as a puppy mill capital. The citizens of MO voted for and passed a law outlawing them and providing more protection. Then the legislilature of Mo over-ruled it and took out many provisions. It is a travesty. The citizens voted, but the legislature overruled it. What's wrong with this picture? It's all wrong.

Signed. We humans need to consider ourselves caretakers of both the earth and its creatures rather than "owners" We gain far more that is priceless and transformational by caring for, learning from and living in harmony with animals than by what is achieved from harming or commoditizing them. Animals provide the opportunity to teach us to be better human beings.
