Transcript of Problem:
Puppy mills are known to be very unsanitary and not well kept.
Puppies are kept in wire cages without weather protection and minimal food and water.
Many of the puppies suffer from malnutrition, dehydration, tooth decay, and usually have sore paws from the wire cages.
The breeders don't give the puppies any veterinary care which means they usually don't have any vaccinations.
In the state of Arizona if a kennel has 5 or more dogs, it must be licensed and you must pay a $75 fee and inspections are required.
A female breeding dog breeds at every heat cycle.
Which means by the time shes 5 she could have had up to 10 litters of puppies.
A breeding dog gets the same living arrangements as the puppies.
They spend 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in a small cage.
Once they can no longer breed they are sent off to laboratories, left to die, or just killed.
Most people don't realize they're buying from a puppy mill.
but there are many ways to tell if you're buying from one
Did you know that there are over 10,000 puppy mills in the U.S. alone?
And only 26 states have laws regulating commercial kennels
One of which is Arizona
Puppy Mills are commercial breeding facilities that over breed dogs to sell them.
Puppy Mills sell the dogs to pet stores, through the internet and even through newspaper ads.
If a breeder is willing to get rid of a puppy before it is 8 weeks old
If the breeder wont let you meet the parents of the puppy
If the breeder wont let you see where the puppy was born.
These could all be signs of a puppy being from a puppy mill.
According to the Humane Society, puppy mills in total sell more then 2,000,000 puppies just anually. While 5 to 7 million dogs enter shelters and need homes.
These puppy mills are cruel and use these innocent dogs to make a living.
We need to put a stop to these dogs suffering.
