For those aware of animal rights issues and puppy mills, walking past New York pet shops can be incredibly difficult and heartbreaking. Sure, the bundles of bouncing baby animals are adorable beyond words, but their lives began in dismal conditions in breeding operations, more commonly known as puppy mills.

For those unfamiliar with the term, puppy mills are essentially makeshift animal breeding factories typically set up in people’s homes. Animals deemed profitable for sale are continuously bred so their offspring can be sold to keep up with the demand from pet shops. Since profit is the primary concern at puppy mills, the health and well-being of the animals are neglected. The environments are like scenes from a nightmare, notoriously filthy and crowded with miserable animals piled on top of one another suffering from a number of diseases and ailments. Inbreeding runs rampant, which can cause serious developmental abnormalities, and animals who are not considered profitable or can no longer breed are mercilessly killed or abandoned.

Thankfully, about sixty cities across the country, including San Francisco and Phoenix, have instated laws that prohibit pet shops from selling animals from puppy mills, instead requiring them to partner with animal shelters and rescues to adopt out animals. A petition on Care2 addressed to the New York State Legislature and Governor Cuomo is asking for New York to follow in these cities’ footsteps and instate a similar law banning the sale of animals in pet shops. Given the recent investigation into one NYC pet store that found horrific instances of neglect and abuse, this action should be taken very seriously and swiftly.

If you want to see an end to puppy mills, please take a moment to sign the petition. And please share this with your friends and family to help gain further support for this serious cause!
