By now most of us are aware that most puppy mills in America are cruel and inhumane. They churn out puppies as quickly as possible, raise them in deplorable, sub-standard conditions, and then sell them to individuals or pet stores only then to be sold to the public. All in all, puppy mills do not raise healthy dogs.

The Humane Society of the United States has been unwavering in its quest to eradicate puppy mills — its latest initiative is asking pet store owners to refuse to sell puppies in their stores, with the intention of discouraging puppy mill sales and encouraging rescue adoptions. Stores that comply receive an officially endorsed HSUS sticker to display in their windows.

Stand with HSUS in eliminating cruel puppy mills across the United States.

Dear Mr. Pacelle, President and CEO:

As your organization has taught so many, puppy mills are dangerous places. Puppies from puppy mills are raised in sub-par conditions with little freedom to exercise or play. The dogs are often sold in poor health because the breeder's main interest is financial gain.

That's why your Puppy Friendly Pet Stores initiative is so important. Often people don't know that the puppy they're buying comes from a puppy mill. The only way to be sure is to stop the sale of puppies completely. This will encourage rescue adoptions and leave large-scale, commercial breeders with few places to sell their puppies.

The Puppy Friendly Pet Stores initiative is integral to letting people know they aren't supporting a dangerous and unethical trade. Thank you for taking a stand for America's puppies.
