Recently I received an email from The Humane Society of South Mississippi, letting me know they had just taken in 104 dogs from a puppy mill bust. Puppy mills are large scale breeding operations, that typically house dogs in filthy conditions.
Many online breeders and pet stores obtain their puppies from these puppy mills. If you are considering adding a dog to your home, please always adopt and never shop at a pet store or online breeder.
By adopting, not only are you adding a great new pet to your family, but you are also saving a life. There are over 331,000 homeless pets waiting on Petfinder for you right now!
