Puppy Mills

A puppy mill is a business which breeds large quantities of dogs for the sake of profit. They have earned an unsavory reputation due to their inhumane and unethical way of handling dog breeding. Puppy mills do not screen their dogs for genetic deficiencies and will breed dogs with health problems. They often have multiple rows of caged dogs crammed in tight quarters. These dogs have very little to no socialization whatsoever. Unfortunately, a large number of pet shops obtain their puppies from these mills.
