Yes, and I’m not sure what to do about it.
I told you I had been reading about puppy mills recently. Well, it turns out Lancaster County, PA is considered the puppy mill capital of the East!
I’m learning puppy mills are well known for their disgusting conditions and constant breeding habits. They breed unhealthy dogs just for profit, not caring if they are genetically or socially defective.
These puppy mills squeeze out all the profit they can by not spending money on proper nutrition, housing or vet care.
One of the sites I visited was called prisonersofgreed.org
The people who don’t know any better, buy these poor puppies only to often gain a very ill pup.
Thousands of $ are sometimes needed for medical costs. It’s also hard to socialize a pup that has been trapped in a tiny cage, not even touching the ground.
Believe me, there are so many great things in my adopted hometown. Somehow that seems to make this stain even worse.
And I’m far from being an expert about this issue.
I have a lot to learn. I want to find out more about puppy mill rescue groups too. There was information on the need for foster homes for the pups.
Anybody with any info about this, please share it with me!
Sorry for such a downer of a post. I was just shocked to hear about this issue.
I guess I’ve kept myself pretty sheltered about any bad ne
I know this post will upset my sister! Sorry.
Don’t worry tomorrow I’m back with new Splotchy and cat pictures!
Hope to see you then.
