"USDA licensed kennels" (puppy mills) are large-scale dog breeding facilities, notorious for the substandard care and cruelty inflected on innocent animals. Dogs in puppy mills often spend their entire lives in tiny, filthy, cramped wire cages, unprotected from extreme weather conditions. The parents suffer from over-breeding, lack of veterinary care, and inadequate food & water. They are never touched with kindness and don't have the normal, happy lives that all dogs deserve.
Millers profit by offering a never ending supply of puppies sold to an unassuming public through pet stores, websites, and various forms of newspaper ads.
To see an end to the deplorable and disturbing conditions endured by these dogs, the public must first be made aware about the hidden truth behind puppy mills and understand where these animals are born. Learn and be awakened! Not buying from puppy mill vendors is the best place to start helping our best friends. We urge the public to adopt or rescue their next dog. Those who still want to buy dogs we encourage to do this responsibly. That means doing extensive research on a breeder and meeting the mother in person.
