    Default Puppy Mills: What People Can Do To Help Shut Them Down

    These are some things that people can do to help shut down Puppy Mills, and put a stop to the torture, neglect, and abuse of innocent animals. Everyone can make a difference.



    Puppy Mills




    PLEASE HELP SHUT DOWN A PLACE OF TORTURE, SADNESS AND MISERY


    A PLACE KNOWN AS A PUPPY MILL....


    Imagine sitting in a cramped, dirty and smelly cage with no where to turn, not being able to move. Food and water is scarce, and the chance to get any medical attention is rare. The winter time is unbearable with the freezing snow and rain. No protection from the heat, not enough water makes the summer time torture. ~ PLEASE HELP ~



    HOW YOU CAN HELP


    Helping to fight anything does not happen overnight


    But each and everyone of us CAN HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE
    Each action we take - means closer to freedom for these poor dogs.



    ADOPT ~ The #1 thing we ALL need to do is ADOPT, GO TO A SHELTER, OR RESCUE A DOG, instead of buying one. Just imagine how many lives would be saved if EVERYONE ADOPTED!!


    ASPCA ~ Take the ASPCA pledge to "Not buy anything from stores that sell puppies". Here is a list of stores that SELL PUPPIES - DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THESE STORES.


    DOWNLOAD A FLIER ~ Some of you out there can get down and dirty. When out shopping maybe put a flier on a car's windshield outside a pet store, hang a flier in your vet's office (if your VET say's OK,) maybe even post some of these fliers at work. BE CREATIVE but don't get in trouble.


    MISSOURI HELPING ~ "Missourians for the protection for dogs" is a "group" of animal organizations trying to help pass laws ~ Add YOUR name to the list and help.

    REPORT BAD BREEDING ~ Report a breeding facility if you know they are abusing their dogs, and/or report a nuisance breeder and do the world justice.


    SEND AN EMAIL ~ Something we do EVERYDAY. Imagine if we send an Email to our entire contact list and they sent them to their friends, etc..The potential to reach thousands if not millions is an amazing thought.


    SIGN A PETITION ~ Sign online to help shut down Quebec's commercial breeding industry. Every signature counts.


    SUPPORT "NOT" SELLING ~ View a list of pet stores that do not sell puppies and download a pledge to hand out to pet stores to help join the fight.

    INDIANA campaign bringing awareness to conditions inside Indiana Amish puppy mills.


    LAST CHANCE FOR ANIMALS ~ Has multiple campaigns for "ALL" animals because their mission statement, "recognizes that animals have the ability to experience pain, and as such they deserve certain basic rights protecting them from pain caused by humans".


    NO PET STORE PUPPIES~ A campaign called "DON'T SHOP 'TIL THEY STOP" ~ Stop buying anything from pet stores that sell puppies. SIGN THE PLEDGE TODAY.


    PETS FOR PROFITS ~ Pets for Profits is a campaign to help end animal cruelty. Sign their pledge today so you can help shut down "animal breeding done with torture"....


    PRISONERS OF GREED ~ If people stopped buying puppies in pet stores, the demand would end and the pet stores would stop buying from commercial kennels and then the misery would end.


    PUPPIES AREN'T PRODUCTS is a campaign to create a world of "No More Homeless Pets" by fighting against irresponsible breeding.

    PUPPY MILL AWARENESS DAY ~ Annual dog walks, book signings by Dean Koontz, "Bailing Out Benji" is a month long event to help educate the people in Iowa. This website is all about AWARENESS...visit this great site.

    In my opinion the only way to stop puppy mills is that people get educated and STOP BUYING the pups. It's gruel, I know, but buying will only support the business and make it possible. Nobody makes/sells anything that nobody buys!!!! It doesn't matter how illegal or difficult you do it....if there's a market there's....Think of drugs...
