More About Back Yard Breeding and Puppy Mills

The pet population is over the top, and that's not a good thing. 99% of pet stores buy from puppy mills, which often means that the dogs were abused (click HERE for more information about puppy mills). Thousands of pets are put in shelters and euthanized each year. Back yard breeders are abundant around the world (click HERE to learn about backyard breeders-AKA BYBs). Backyard breeders breed for fun and profit, more than often breeding dogs with health problems and not taking proper care of the dogs. They only increase the pet population, which is a very large problem in the U.S.A and other areas around the world. Puppy mills keep breed purely for profit and most of the dogs that come from the mills are sick, injured, and many of them die. A smart, good breeder would be trained properly, while puppy mill breeders and BYB breeders are not trained. Sadly, mills don't always come with just puppies. Goats, chickens, cats, etc are also victims.

Please, spay and neuter your pets, or more animals could be in shelters this year! And don't buy from pet stores.
