Puppy mill operators suck!

Like I said…puppy millers suck! Could I be more blunt about it? Gina, over at Pet Connection, ranted wrote a bit about puppy millers, and I happen to share the same views on them as she does. I guess reading her post and then the USA Today article she mentions really got my dander up – and honestly, just the mention of puppy millers can do that!
As Gina points out, the holidays are not all that far away and the money-hungry puppy millers are gearing up to sell another crop of puppies. And yes, people who are in the puppy mill business look at their puppies as nothing more than crops (cash crops)! With that mindset, how could they possibly sell you a happy, healthy pet?

You should really go read Gina’s post – and then read the USA Today article about puppy mills. It will absolutely disgust anyone who has enough of a heart to see what puppy mill operators put their dogs through…all in the name of money.

If you’re considering buying a puppy or kitten for someone for the holidays DON’T DO IT! Don’t help further the cruel puppy mill industry by putting more money in their pockets.

If you do feel the need to give someone a pet as a gift, give them a gift certificate to adopt a pet from a local animal shelter. This way the person you’re giving the promise of a pet to can find the one that they feel a connection with. And, if on the other hand, the person decides they simply aren’t ready for a pet, the money you spent on the gift certificate will be a great donation to help needy pets.
