What Can You Do to Help the HSUS End the Horrific Conditions and Cruelty at Puppy Mills and Pet Stores Nationwide?
Submitted by America's Charities
Not all pet stores are bad. More than 3,000 pet stores have partnered through The Humane Society of the United States’ Puppy Friendly Pet Stores program. The vast majority of these 3,000 stores signed a pledge to never sell “commercially raised puppies”, and focus on pet products and services instead. Only a few dozen stores account for all these adoptions. This helps the HSUS crack-down on endless suffering for the dogs involved and leading to adoptions of more than 35,000 local shelter pets instead.
Unfortunately some pet stores still choose to source their puppies from commercial dog breeding operations known as “puppy mills.” Behind the cute, fluffy puppies you see in those store windows is a very shady, cruel industry where dogs are treated horrifically.
