  1. So sad. I am glad that Beatrice was rescued. I hope that puppy mills will one day be a thing of the past. I can’t believe how cruel people can be. All in the name of greed. Just a crime! Good luck to the puppy mill rescues may you have good homes and to those of you still waiting may your rescues come soon.

  2. I know the face of a puppy mill dog all too well. It’s wonderful to see stars and celebrities getting involved and educating people. Some day soon puppy mills will not be able to operate as they have been doing for too many years. I hope and praye that day comes soon.

  3. Don’t buy online either~ they hire families to front for them! most of those puppies come from backyard breeders that inbreed or from puppy mills.

  4. It is a way to make people aware of puppy mills. And $50 is cheap for adoption considering they make sure all vetting needs are met before they adopt out.

  5. All dogs deserve love, regardless of where they are from. I brought my best friend home from a pet store, I decided to bring him home before he had the chance to suffer in a Shelter. I love him more than life itself & no one can change my mind about that. Close puppy mills, yes… But don’t withhold love from a puppy, just because they are in a pet store.

    • Krystal that’s something that’s a hard call, buy that puppy anyway ,not to punish it, and that promotes income, which makes the store buy more mill puppies promoting puppy mills where dogs live in cages on top of one another, their entire lives, grating injuring paws, and allowing urine and feces to fall down to lower cages causing more illnesses, including urine scalding on the dogs in lower cages.

    • Every pet shop purchase supports puppy mills- EVERY PET SHOP PURCHASE SUPPORTS PUPPY MILLS- the life you buy from the pet shop is financing and supporting the continuing misery and eventual death of it’s mother. A better option is to ask the shop owner, When a pup is past it’s “cute” stage,and no longer “wanted” ring me before you kill it, I will take it then -for free.
