pile-of-chisPuppy Mills: Their Cruelty and Our Fight Against It

Puppy Mills, if you do not know the term yet, define a commercial group of breeders who confine hundreds of dogs in cages for the sole purpose of breeding them for profit until they are no longer useful.  These dogs may never have a name or any loving human contact, medical care or know what it is to play outdoors or with toys.  Most often these dogs are housed in shockingly deplorable conditions until their fertility wanes, and then they are often killed, abandoned or sold cheaply to another mill to try and get “one more litter” out of them. The annual result of all this breeding is millions of puppies, many with behavior and/or health problems.  It is estimated that at least 90% of all major pet retail chains that sell dogs, purchase them from Puppy Mills.

Breed Specific Legislation and how to fight it

Breed-specific legislation (BSL) is the blanket term for laws that regulate or ban certain breeds of dogs completely in the hopes of reducing dog attacks.  Some city/municipal governments have enacted breed-specific laws, however, the problem will not be remedied by these breed-discriminatory laws.  The problem of dangerous dogs DOES require serious attention, but what is needed is stricter laws that hold dog owners accountable for the actions of their animals and increased education and spay/neuter resources.
