With their happily wagging tails, pet store puppies give the illusion of being healthy, cared for animals; the suffering they endured before arriving in the shop window is too easily hidden or overlooked. Sadly, most pet stores get their dogs from puppy mills—mass-breeding operations where mother dogs spend their entire lives in cramped cages.
Due to poor sanitation and a lack of preventive veterinary care, sick animals are sent home with unsuspecting consumers, breaking the hearts of families excited to welcome their new best friend.
There are thousands of puppy mills across the country being supported by pet stores like Petland, the last national franchise that still sells dogs. By contributing a generous gift to our efforts to stop this industry and other abuses, you’ll provide the funds we need to continue undercover investigations that expose hidden mistreatment like this, help shut down the vicious cycle of puppy mills and continue our lifesaving work for all animals.
