Puppy Mill Insider Speaks Out

Puppy mills are commercial dog breeding facilities that operate with an emphasis on profit as opposed to the welfare of the animals. Overcrowding, unsanitary conditions, abuse and a lack of adequate food, water and veterinary care is common. Due to the often poor breeding practices, these puppies frequently face health and social problems that can effect them for their entire life.

Timmy Bullion, a former puppy mill employee in Virginia, speaks out about the atrocious practices he witnessed while working in the field before leaving to become an advocate for these animals.

People are often endeared by wide-eyed dogs in pet shop windows, but they unknowingly perpetuate this callous practice. If we stop giving them our money, these awful establishments will become obsolete. Always adopt a homeless pet from a local animal shelter. Never buy from a pet store or breeder.

URGENT: Proposal to 86 adoption program means DEATH in the GAS CHAMBER!!!

—————————————————————————————————-

Hi Everyone,

As you know, the SPCA rescues hundreds of puppies and family dogs slated for euthanasia in southern shelters each year.  One of the largest shelters we work with is Gaston County Animal Control in Gastonia, NC. This shelter has an 85% kill rate and still euthanizes via the gas chamber, a barbaric practice that is illegal in most states. To make matters worse, in order to meet budget cuts the Gaston director is now proposing to do away with the adoptions program in its entirety which means even more animals will be killed. Please email the commissioners listed below and tell them that sacrificing more lives is not an acceptable way to fill a budget deficit. North Carolina residents, your voices are especially needed!

I don’t often send these around but this is too important. The SPCA has pulled almost 500 dogs and puppies from this shelter in the past year and united them with loving families in our area. Please forward to all likeminded friends and family.

Thanks,

Shannon
