Pledge to Help Stop Puppy Mills—It Starts With YOU!

Pet stores that care about puppies don’t sell them. That’s because the majority of pet stores that sell puppies carry dogs from cruel and inhumane puppy mills. Puppy mills are like dog-making factories with the mother dogs spending their entire lives in cramped cages or kennels with little or no personal attention or quality of life. When the mother and father dogs can no longer breed, they are discarded or killed. Consumers who purchase puppies from pet stores or over the Internet without seeing a breeder’s home firsthand are often unknowingly supporting this cruel industry.

Help Stop Puppy Mills

Help stop this cycle of cruelty simply by choosing to adopt your next pet from a shelter or rescue. And that’s not all—you can do even more by refusing to buy pet supplies from any store or website that sells puppies. Where you spend your dollars makes a difference. Make a statement when you shop!

Emergency Relief Waggin

Daisy and I love bringing you stories about how you can help support efforts to help animals in need. We’ve blogged about how you can take the ASPCA Pledge to End Puppy Mills by promising never to shop for anything at a store that sells puppies. Well, you might have seen the shocking news about the recent puppy mill situation in Johnston, S.C.

The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society of Charlotte were called in by the Edgefield County Sheriff’s Office to assist in the rescue of approximately 250 animals including more than 200 dogs of various breeds and ages living in deplorable conditions.

PetSmart Charities heard about what was going on and dispatched its Emergency Relief Waggin’ vehicle, stocked with $90,000 worth of crucial supplies, to the scene where animal rescue teams will operate an emergency shelter. The vehicles are stocked with crucial supplies, including pet food, wire crates, plastic carriers, bowls, fans, and more to aid the animal rescuers on scene.
