Puppy Mill Insider Speaks Out (VIDEO)

Puppy mills are commercial dog breeding facilities that operate with an emphasis on profit as opposed to the welfare of the animals. Overcrowding, unsanitary conditions, abuse and a lack of adequate food, water and veterinary care is common. Due to the often poor breeding practices, these puppies frequently face health and social problems that can effect them for their entire life.

Timmy Bullion, a former puppy mill employee in Virginia, speaks out about the atrocious practices he witnessed while working in the field before leaving to become an advocate for these animals.

People are often endeared by wide-eyed dogs in pet shop windows, but they unknowingly perpetuate this callous practice. If we stop giving them our money, these awful establishments will become obsolete. Always adopt a homeless pet from a local animal shelter. Never buy from a pet store or breeder.

Frances, banning the AKC is pretty "counter-productive" to fighting animal abuse, neglect and cruelty. They do a ton to promote shelters, offer courses in responsible pet ownership, veterinary care, nutrition and promote responsible breeding only..........NOT what you see in puppy mills. I was appalled when I was in a pet store (see my previous comment at 11:35 P.M. on 1/25) where they were selling supposedly AKC registered "designer dogs". AKC does not register crossbreds, and to sell them for the outrageous prices (over $750 each) was despicable. RESPONSIBLE breeders of purebreds work hard to eliminate breed-specific, genetic defects, and most will guarantee what they breed to be as free of such "defects" as possible. Ban the AKC and you eliminate those breeders, so what's left.........backyard owners who will breed "willy nilly" just anything and 95% of those puppies end up in shelters.

Ban puppy mills. Ban the AKC. Ban Pet stores who sell live animals. Ban exotic animals from being imported into this country. Ban shelters who kill their animals. Ban politicians who do not support laws who protect animals both in this country and abroad. When we don't have to put down wonderful animals anymore, then we have obeyed God's Law.
