You would be hard pressed to find someone who does not love puppies. There is no question there. This is why when people see little puppy faces staring up at them in pet stores, they are incredibly tempted to purchase one. But, what many people do not know is that these puppies are often the product of puppy mills. Puppy mills are large-scale breeding facilities where hundreds of dogs are kept in deplorable conditions for the sole purpose of churning out puppies.
This video shows a suspected puppy mill facility located in Warm Spring, Arkansas. Seeing the dogs chained outside in freezing conditions absolutely breaks our hearts, and sadly many other dogs are suffering in similar conditions across the U.S. We are so thankful that the Humane Society of the United States has stepped in to rescue the 46 dogs and 11 other animals who were living in this miserable puppy mill and hope they will all find new, loving forever homes soon!
So, please remember, if you are looking to bring a puppy into your family, always adopt and never shop!
