Victory: Together We Are Bringing an End to Puppy Mills!

Wednesday, November 9, 2011 - 5:15pm

Every single day our team works hard to bring an end to puppy mills—and our efforts are paying off. Three weeks ago, Jack’s Pets, a pet store chain with 27 stores in the Midwest, pledged to stop selling puppies. Instead, the store will work with local animal rescue groups and shelters to find homes for homeless pets.

Just a few days earlier, the ASPCA assisted in the treatment and sheltering of more than 100 dogs rescued from a puppy mill in Kentucky. The dogs are now safe and the mill’s owner has been charged with 46 counts of animal cruelty.

Today, our team is on the ground in Arkansas, where we are caring for nearly 200 dogs saved from a puppy mill in Hot Springs. The owner was arrested and charged with three counts of felony animal cruelty. We are making real progress!
