Every day, more than 9,000 healthy U.S. shelter animals, waiting for a loving forever home, are put down because there is simply not enough room for them in overcrowded shelters. That’s about one death every 6 seconds!

This sad reality can never end when puppy mills continue to churn out new puppies everyday — puppies that are then brought to pet stores to sell. That cute puppy in the store front window most likely came from a puppy mill — a dreary place where breeding dogs are forced to produce litter after litter in subpar, dreary, and often filthy conditions.

In the video above, watch a short, informative clip on why you should always opt to adopt, rather than shop for your next furry family member!

There are thousands of animals waiting in shelters for someone to love them. Save a life and adopt today! Be sure to share this video so that more people are aware of the horrendous cycle of puppy mills, stop the cycle, and can help save a life.
