  Save lifes..dont shop, ADOPT

Can you imagine forcing your pet dog to live his or her entire life in a small
wire cage with no human companionship, toys or comfort, and little hope of
ever becoming part of a family? That is what life is like for a puppy mill breeding dog.

  Puppy mills have been around for decades. They continue to thrive because they prey on
unwitting consumers who are smitten by too-cute-for-words puppies in pet store windows
and on legitimate-seeming websites. Puppy mills house dogs in shockingly poor conditions.
Hundreds of thousands of dogs suffer in puppy mills in this country. The dogs are
prisoners of greed. They are locked in small cages. They freeze in the winter and
swelter in the summer. The dogs never get out of their prisons. They are bred over
and over again.
  After their fertility wanes, breeding animals are often killed, abandoned or sold
cheaply to another mill to try and get "one more litter" out of the dog. The annual
result of all this breeding is millions of puppies, many with behavior and/or health
problems. The only way to free them from the misery of these
horrid puppymills is to eliminate the demand for puppies by refusing to buy a puppy
in a pet store and boycotting those pet stores that sell puppies. When people stop
buying puppies in pet stores, the puppy mills will go out of business and the misery
will end. The state and federal governments do not enforce the laws to protect the
dogs. The commercial breeders and brokers have huge well-funded lobbying efforts.

  Please join this fight to free the prisoners of greed. The only person who is going
to make a difference for the dogs suffering in puppy mills is you. You, the people,
can free them from their puppy mill prisons.
