From the Best Friends Animal Society:
Each year, millions of Americans buy new puppies from pet stores or on the Internet. Meanwhile, millions of dogs suffer on the "production line" in America's puppy mills - living in tiny, wire-bottomed cages, in squalid conditions with little to no human contact.
While puppy mills attempt to maximize their profits, churning out as many litters as possible, roughly 11,000 animals are euthanized in America's shelters every single day.
The Puppies Aren't Products initiative seeks to help people understand the link between puppy mills and pet stores. Our goal is to shine light on the truth behind the puppy in the pet store window, so that American consumers no longer unknowingly support puppy mills. Our goal is to see that America's dogs no longer live in these cruel conditions.
We believe that together we can change the industry. We can reduce the number of puppy mill dogs sold in the community, and increase the number of homeless animals adopted into loving homes.
Join Best Friends Animal Society in the fight against puppy mills and help create a day with No More Homeless Pets. Working together, we will see a day when all of America's dogs have what they deserve: safety, good care, happiness, and love from a family of their own.
