November 22nd 2017:Fighting Puppy Mills

Puppy mills are one of the most inhumane places you will find in the world. The puppies in these mills tend to be taken from their mothers too soon, don’t get the vaccinations they need, are not given a proper social environment with other dogs and people, and are left for hours in unsanitary environments.
