Remember to Adopt, Don't Shop, on the Puppy Mill Awareness Blog Train!

Steam Train at Tweksbury

Crowded, squalid conditions, abuse, no veterinary care or socialization, poor food, no clean water, lack of adequate exercise space and more, this is the plight of dogs and cats in “Puppy Mills or “Kitten Mills” (Yes, there are kitten mills too!)

Did you know that every seven days, an estimated 40,000 puppies will be born in mills across America? That’s more than 2 million puppies a year. In a nation where over 4 million dogs are euthanized in shelters yearly, this is a staggering and heartbreaking statistic that needs to be stopped.

There are plenty of ways you can help. First off, if you're thinking of getting a pet, ADOPT from a shelter, don't shop at a store. Even if you want a pure bred animal, check with your shelter. Many pure bred animals, both dogs and cats are surrendered to shelters, and some even come with registration papers. If they don't have what you're looking for, they can put you in touch with a rescue agency for the breed you are interested in.

And second, if the pet store near you sells puppies or kittens, don't shop there. Period. Not for anything. And tell your friends to stay out as well!
