- Where to shop, and not to shop
Week in Review - September 7, 2012
“If you see a puppy for sale in a pet store, you can be certain that that puppy came from a puppy mill.”
“The Waterloo, N.Y., Town Council voted Aug. 27, 2012, in favor of implementing a one-year moratorium on the construction of any new kennels or dog breeding facilities, or the expansion of any existing facilities of the same.”
“Almost 30 dogs were seized from an alleged puppy mill in Wilson County last Thursday.”
“Brunswick County sheriff's deputies and animal rights advocates rescued 160 dogs, 26 birds and one cat in the raid of the breeding operation inside a doublewide trailer without electricity.”
During the processing of the dogs, she said she saw extreme matting of fur, flea infestation, dental problems, ruptured eyes and other serious ailments.
Imagine a room full of dogs, all of them in filthy crates. Imagine them with bleeding paws, matted fur and inflamed, itchy skin. Imagine them barking nonstop, trying to get the attention of someone who will help them. Doesn't this seem like a cruel and horrid way to treat dogs? Well, it gets worse.
