When buying a new puppy it is important to find out about and meet the breeders because otherwise, you may unknowingly be supporting animal cruelty. In puppy mills, females are made to give birth to litter after litter, with each one being taken away at just a few months old. They are kept in poor conditions and killed when they are no longer able to produce puppies. Their poor defenseless puppies grow up without their mum and are kept in cramped small cages without the food, water, care and comforts they need to live a healthy happy life.
Ohio is America’s second largest puppy mill state. Thousands of dogs suffer in Ohio puppy mills every day, but with your help, that could change. Sign up now to support the Stop Puppy Mills Ohio campaign to show you support amendments to existing legislation that will help to improve living conditions. Females will only be able to give birth to two litters every 18 months and enclosure sizes will be regulated, among other changes.
