We’re fighting harder than ever to end animal suffering in puppy mills. Launched this summer, the ASPCA’s collection of more than 10,000 images of USDA-licensed breeding facilities aims to show prospective puppy buyers and other members of the public just what we mean when we say that most pet store puppies come from puppy mills.
The database is part of our No Pet Store Puppies campaign, and it’s our latest tool in the fight to protect dogs suffering in puppy mills. It contains photos of commercial dog breeding facilities and links some of them to specific pet stores throughout the country that have sold puppies from them within the last year.
The images are at times shocking. They depict wounds, illness, isolation, and other animal suffering. The photos show not only conditions that violate federal law, but also conditions that are legal but that the ASPCA—and the general public—consider inhumane.
Above all, they remind us just what it means to put profit over the wellbeing of animals.
We’re ready to do whatever it takes to stand up for animals suffering from neglect, cruelty and homelessness in every state. We hope you’ll consider joining that fight by making a gift to the ASPCA today.
Thank you for your generosity and compassion.
