ving their very own pet. Not on your life or the animals that are abused on their way to the pet store. Yes, Petpedia says...
"The majority, if not all, puppies in pet stores come from puppy mills that can make even the most atrocious jails look like a haven."ke money. Petpedia states less than 3,000 are regulated and puppy mill death statistics are not reported. What we have here is an example of abhorrent treatment of innocent animals that cannot protect themselves, with the birther female used over and over, then discarded or worse when no longer able to produce.
used in labs for animal testing? There are also groups that oppose using animals for testing like those who are against puppy mills. It's cruelty, plain and simple, and a clear illustration of how some lowlifes place money over a living thing. Would this country allow baby mills to operate in this manner? I think not and neither should the government permit puppy mills.
"A puppy mill is an inhumane high-volume dog breeding facility that churns out puppies for profit, ignoring the needs of the pups and their mothers. Dogs from puppy mills are often sick and unsocialized. Puppy mills commonly sell through internet sales, online classified ads, flea markets and pet stores."
The key word in this statement is the word, inhumane; do you agree that there
"Despite progress in humane product testing and bans on animal testing for cosmetics in other countries, the United States has no national law prohibiting the use of animals for cosmetics testing."
We are pathetic in our prevention of cruelty to animals, which clearly shows a lack of integrity in the American people. Were it not for animal lovers, you might wonder how bad this situation could become. How many times have you heard, "It's just an animal?" Here's another quote from the Humane Society...
"Mother dogs spend their entire lives in cramped cages with little to no personal attention. When the mother and father dogs can no longer breed, they are abandoned or killed. Due to poor sanitation, overbreeding and a lack of preventive veterinary care, the puppies from puppy mills frequently suffer from a variety of health issues, creating heartbreaking challenges for families who should be enjoying the delights of adopting a new family member."
