Puppy Mills – 22 December 2007

“U.S. humane societies have issued pre-Christmas warnings against buying puppies from puppy mills for at least 75 years,” according to the November/December 2007 issue of the “Animal People” newspaper.

Yet, many breeders are still in business and their sales have doubled to more than four million puppies per year. “The puppy mill raids underscored the point that neglect of animals by breeders appears to be growing throughout the U.S., parallel to the growing demand for puppies and declining availability of puppies from shelters.” (From “Animal People”)

In my opinion, too many dog buyers are simply motivated by selfishness, pride, and reasons other than love, kindness, and compassion. Surely, after all these years the public must be aware of the behind the scenes abuse of so many “pet” businesses. As long as these hard-hearted buyers choose to ignore reality, the breeders are only too willing to satisfy the demand for these animals who to them are just “products” for sale.

Please read the “Animal People” report on puppy mills in their November/December 2007 issue.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
