I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – puppy mills should be outlawed. Boycott them. How?
– Buy your puppies only from a reputable breeder where you can see the puppies and their parents in their home environment before you even consider buying. Or go to an animal shelter and rescue a puppy or dog that desperately needs a good home.
– Never, never, never buy puppies from pet shops – it perpetuates the whole puppy mill industry and keeps it going. You contribute to the cruelty by buying a dog from a pet shop.
