KNOW WHAT YOU CAN DO.
Thousands of dogs suffer in puppy mills every year. They live in small wire cages that are unsafe, and uncomfortable. There is no heat in the winter, which leads to many of the dogs freezing to death. As in the summer they get heat stroke, and the outcome is usually death as well. They are never or rarely taken out of their cages, usually only to be breed. If they get sick in the cages and are not worth breeding, they are thrown away to die. Many of the dogs loose their hair due to malnutrition. Many also loose their feet because their paws get stuck in the wire. But more importantly, too many loose their lifes.
The dogs that you buy in pet stores are most commonly from puppy mills. Meaning, that many dogs had to suffer or die for you to get that picture perfect puppy. How many of you would rather pay $600 for a puppy at the pet store, knowing that its parents were prisoners to breed, rather than adopting a puppy from a shelter, that is just as good? People need to realize what puppy mills are doing, and we need to stop buying puppies at the pet stores and start adopting. Approximately 3 dogs die, every time a dog is bought at a pet store. Could you handle the fact that you could've prevented that?
