Bringing home a new family member, including those covered in fur, is a big moment. But the Humane Society is encouraging folks to choose the place they purchase or rescue a puppy from carefully.
Why should you care?
- The “puppy mills” that the Humane Society is concerned about can be places where pups spend their lives in cramped cages with little to no personal attention or quality of life.
- Consumers who purchase puppies over the Internet without seeing a breeder's home firsthand are often unknowingly supporting this cruelty.
How can you help?
- Choose to adopt your next pet from a shelter or rescue.
- Only purchase a dog from a responsible store/breeder who will show you where your puppy was raised.
