Puppy Mills are despicable. I wish I had more power within myself to work towards getting them all shut down and put out of business. I would make it my life's work and mission if I knew how.
Instead I just plod along day by day just trying to help in the small ways that I am able to make a difference - getting the word out and volunteering for an animal rescue organization. Taking part in mill rescues, and pledging to never "buy" a dog from a pet store again when there are so so many in shelters and rescues needing homes.
No matter how much I would love to bring home a cuddly fluffy perfect little pug puppy tomorrow - I refuse to ever "shop" for a dog at a pet store - knowing full well that doing so only puts money back into the pockets of these puppy mill outfits, basically funding their horrific operations. Perpetuating the crime. Ultimately Causing more innocent animals to suffer.
I hope you, the reader will take that pledge to do the same. If everyone took a stand and stopped buying puppies from pet stores then the millers would be forced to shut down. No supply, no demand. No demand, no supply.
One person can't make a difference here but united pet lovers can.
Sadly, Pugs are one of the breeds that are treated worst in puppy mills. The pug puppies are high in demand and the evil puppy mill mongers take advantage of them in every unspeakable way.
It's stuff like this that makes me lose my faith in humanity at times.
On a positive note these were some of the lucky dogs to make it out alive in a recent mill rescue.
