Puppy mills, as the name suggests, churn out pups by the thousands, under extremely cruel and inhumane conditions, for one purpose only: the almighty dollar. It is estimated that there are 4,000 puppy mills in the U.S. that produce more than half a million puppies a year!
- That’s 30 to 40 litters each and every year, per puppy mill.
- The dogs are underfed, abused and never given medical care.
- The conditions are cruel, cramped and unsanitary. Females must produce puppies at every heat. Once they can’t, they dumped, usually dropped by the side of a country road, or sadistically drowned.
