Using the catchphrase, “Don’t breed or buy while shelter pets die” a national movement is growing against pet breeding under poor conditions and the sale of pets through stores that disguise the conditions of mills.
You may have heard this term before, but may not actually know what it means.

A local woman helps rescue more than two dozen dogs from a puppy mill in the North Country and the man running the mill is facing charges.
“It makes me feel horrible that they live in those cramped conditions and they are bred and that’s all they know. A lot of them haven’t even walked on grass. We have a petition today to change the SC animal right laws," said owner of Charlie's Angels Rescue, Charlie Chappee.
