Puppy Mill Awareness day is a day to bring attention to this issue and hopefully put an end to puppy mills for good.
Over the years, puppy mills have become a big problem in the United States. These mills are large-scale commercial dog breeding operations that keep dogs in cramped, unsanitary conditions.
Puppy mills are notorious for their inhumane treatment of dogs. Dogs kept in puppy mills are often crammed into small wire cages and given little to no veterinary care. They are also rarely given any human interaction or socialization, which can result in behavioral problems later on in life.
Puppy Mill Awareness day was started by the Humane Society of the United States in 2009. Every year on this day, rallies and events are held across the country to raise awareness about the plight of dogs in puppy mills. The hope is that by bringing attention to this issue, people will be more likely to adopt dogs from shelters or rescue organizations instead of supporting the cruel puppy mill industry.
If you’re looking to add a furry friend to your family, please consider adopting from a shelter or rescue organization instead of buying from a pet store or online breeder. By doing so, you’ll be helping to put an end to puppy mills and giving a homeless dog the loving home they deserve.
