Puppy MillsPuppy Mills
Puppy mills, hell on earth for dogs, are horrible and cruel. The housing is terrible, and the cages are never cleaned. Many dogs in these mills die from lack of care, medicine and food. The dogs are underfed and get little to no veterinary care. The cages, usually made out of wire and metal, allow no space to run or play and proves dangerous to the dogs inside.
The cages have holes in them that can cause dogs to get their paw twisted and stuck, and with the lack of food, some rescued dogs from puppy mills are missing their legs because the dogs underneath the puppy would gnaw off it’s leg. The breeders in charge know this happens, but do nothing about it.
Female dogs are bred at every opportunity with barely any recovery time between breeding more liters. When a female dog gets to a certain age and is unable to breed, the dog is killed. It is estimated that, in America, 2.11 million puppies are sold from puppy mills, while around 3 million puppies are killed in animal shelters because there was no room for them at the shelters and no adoptive homes for them.
A non-violent approach would be best. An example on how to do this would be to try driving to a puppy mill and have people rescue the puppies inside and have others block the entrance from the employees. It may sound violent at first but the people wouldn’t fight back. Another way to do this would be to sneak into the puppy mill and place cameras to record what goes on in them. With the right amount of footage, we could bring it to the police, or government and have the people there arrested.
The puppy mills are incredibly terrible and are inhumane. These puppy mills are a fine example of humanity’s flaws and cruelty; abuse and neglect do not just happen to people, but to earth’s creatures as well.
