Break The Cycle Of Pet Abuse

How would you feel if you knew that your pet was "made" in a factory setting? Countless dogs are born into cruel and inhumane puppy mills, where they spend their lives in cramped, filthy cages. The parents are treated like machinery, producing puppy after puppy at an unnatural rate. When they can no longer breed, they are discarded or even killed.

Most people who purchase puppies from pet stores or over the Internet have no idea that they are supporting this vicious "business" practice, but we have the power to stop it. Adopt your next pet from a local animal shelter, or purchase one from a responsible breeder that will show you where your pet was born and raised. It doesn't take much to help thousands of animals!

There needs to be stronger laws and better enforcement to prevent this terrible abuse.

There is special place in hell for people who harm animals and children.

I agree 8:07. If there were actual laws that held these "people" liable then maybe this wouldn't be a problem. It should be illegal. People who participate in dog fighting are fined and charged with animal abuse so why aren't these breeders charged. There should be strict rules and regulations to follow if they want to breed animals.
