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.

This is so sad, to think of these poor little helpless animals being treated (actually mis-treated) in such horrific ways and conditions. So many of these babies never see daylight, feel the ground under their paws or even something so simple as a hug or luv! They are simplly "money machines" there for the purpose of making money! Most aren't even given medical treatment and are simply breed to death! These are loving, caring, feeling animals that want nothing more than to love and be loved. Don't you think it's about time we put the "human" back in "humanity"?


How can people be so cruel and heartless to something with a face like THAT?


adopt, don't shop! Hold puppy mill owners and operators accountable for their horrific treatment of these defenseless animals and put them out of business once and for all!!!


Please stop the torturing of animals. They do not deserve it.

I join the ASPCA in urging the USDA to make sure all puppy mills are regulated, and that legitimate rescues and shelters are not inadvertently impacted. It is our duty to protect those that cannot protect themselves. This includes ALL living things. I have loved animals, especially dogs since I was 2 years old. I am now 54 and knowing how these dogs suffer in puppy mills just makes me ill. Americans protect everything from trees to our freedom. PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO PROTECT OUR DOGS. They have a right to live a free and loving life. This suffering must stop.


Please regulate the Puppy Mills. Give these animals a chance to feel loved and not just caged for breeding.


Please stop puppy mills and regulate the sale of dogs more strictly.

Please tie up all loose ends and loopholes. These are innocent animals that have nobody else to depend on but the kindness of the human heart! Just thinking about this makes me sick to my stomach!! Are this sick to keep letting this happen? Please reconsider!!


Stop this right now! How would you like to be locked in a cage with dozens of other dogs sitting in your own waste, death all around you????
