Puppy mills exist because unwitting consumers buy puppies from pet stores and online, without ever realizing that they are contributing to this cruel industry. There are several easy steps you can take to help us stop this vicious cycle.

Thanks for taking action to stop puppy mills!

Puppy mills are large-scale operations that force dogs to produce litter after litter to support consumer demand for purebred pets. Thank you for helping to stop this suffering

A few years ago a pet store opened near one of our favorite restaurants. I asked where the breeders were located, the owner said, "in the area". That was curious to me, so I made some calls, found the pet store was a front for two puppy mills, they were closed within 2 weeks and we have not had another pet store here since, with the exception of PetSmart. It is so much harder to make war with a national chain. The Puppy Mills were also shut down, maybe a tiny victory, but a victory nonetheless.

It hurts endlessly to see these poor animals and the little dog on the picture. It feels in my chest. I've signed as soon as I saw the article. Good work to all of you who work to stop this, and raise awareness. I didn't know it was this terrible.

I hate puppy mills with a passion! If people want dogs, they should go to shelters or contact breed-specific rescue organizations - or find a reputable breeder.

Puppy mills are the reason for my rescue work. I have always been sa dog person, and I have, as long as I can remember, helped those animals that needed help. Buy adopting a rescue dog from a shelter you can stop little by little the profitability of puppy mills. There are lost of lovely, loving and lively, vivacious and gorgeous dogs available in different parts of this planet, just waiting got the right person. When I get my next dog, after my back is been operated, it will be a rescue dog (or maybe also a Karelian Bear dog), but time will tell. I hate puppy mills, and they have arrived to Finland as well, unfortunately. But there are thousands and thousands of us who believe in ADOPT - DON'T SHOP and that is what we do every time we need a companion animal.
