Take Action—Only a Few Days Left to Help Puppy Mill Dogs!

Wednesday, July 11, 2012 - 1:45pm

We need your help. Many of you already know that puppy mill dogs endure horrible lives of suffering and neglect. But because of a loophole in the Animal Welfare Act, puppy mills that sell puppies exclusively online operate without any federal regulation at all. Dogs are suffering, and it’s time we put an end to the hidden inhumane treatment.

Please Help!
Right now we have a chance to help close this loophole forever. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is considering a rule that would regulate online puppy sellers, and we're fighting hard to make sure it's effective. But we need your help today!

Please tell the USDA to start licensing and inspecting puppy mills that sell dogs online. We have a limited time to fight for this rule.

You can also help by supporting our team's work to fight for stronger laws for animals across the country and our other life-saving efforts by making a small donation today.

Let's stop the puppy mills. There are thousands of puppies that are waiting for someone to love them. We do not need puppy mills to create additional ones. Also, all should be well taken care if and treated humane.

PLEASE....if you have any heart at all, stop puppy mills. It makes me so sick to think of the pain and suffering this is causing so many dogs. This is no doubt one of the most inhumane thing any person can possibly do, and whoever is a part of something like this makes me sick. Animals deserve love and respect just as any human would and unfortunately we have sick and twisted people in this world who don't see that.

Pet store and online Puppy Mills are a major reason our animal shelter are always at full capacity. Everything is fine with the animal for the first couple years; then the health problems start. They are no longer the cute little puppy; with lots of energy, so they end up being neglected until they die. Or are put down to 'save' the animal from a life of pain and suffering. Even worse are the ones who are taken to the shelters. No one consides them because they aren't a puppy and have health problems that would be too expensive for most to deal with. There are so many of them in the shelters and only a few of us that look for, take home and cherish our 'Gimpy Babies' https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=470421872976934&set=a.220530961299361.64933.206630642689393&type=1&relevant_count=1&ref=nf#!/GimpyPets .

Since citizens and becoming more educated and more and more pet stores are closing, the monsters who run them are turning to the Internet and flea markets for puppy sales. This loophole in the law needs to be closed.

There has to be a law to put a Stop of Puppy Mills Now!! The horrible suffering, mistreatment & conditions they are forced to live in is simply animal abuse & must be stopped! The horrible lives they live until they are unable to produce anymore & then killed. It is unreal this has been able to go on this long & it is time to take a stand & be a voice for these poor dogs.

Please close All puppy mills, the animals are treated horribly and the people Who run them only care about profit not the dogs!

There are too many dogs without homes.they shouldn't suffer because of human errors. They deserve love too. They have feelings and nerves as well. Think of how many lives would be saved by closing just one mill. But we can't think small, they all need to be shut down for good!

Puppy Mills need to become part of the legendary past: "Remember when..." humans were allowed to cage animals (dogs, cats, etc.) without proper food, care, medical attention or exercise, all to create more animals to sell for profit?"

PUPPY MILLS NEED TO BE STOPPED! THERE IS NO REASON FOR AN INNOCENT DOG TO LIVE THIS WAY! THESE DOGS, PUPPIES NEED A BETTER LIFE TO LIVE! PUT THIS TO AN END, NOW!
