What Is A Puppy Mill?
A Puppy Mill is a commercial breeding operation wherein dogs and puppies are seen as profit & inventory as opposed to living, breathing beings. They're thrown into kennels given little to no medical care, attention or concern. Puppy Mill operators focus on the output (money). Profit is given priority over the physical & mental well-being of the dogs in their "care". Puppy Mills typically profit from online sales and large quantity sales to pet shops, often falsifying records & lying about the true lineage of the puppies to produce a higher market value. .
If you can imagine all of your senses on overload; your eyes and nose are burning from the ammonia (urine), you can't BELIEVE what you are seeing, the sounds of ~500+ dogs barking in very cramped & deplorable conditions, the matted fur, sores and maggots you feel as you rescue these dogs from their areas...it is unreal, it is overwhelming and it is UNACCEPTABLE!
