Here’s a great new Public Service Announcement (PSA)produced by Animal Rescue Corps and featuring singer Sheryl Crowto raise awareness about the plight of dogs suffering in puppy mills across the country. Anyone who hears the truth about these mass-production factories is sure to be horrified:
Puppy mills are an urgent, widespread problem. There are an estimated 15,000 puppy mills in the U.S. alone. In these mass-production factories, dogs are forced to produce litter after litter of puppies, supplying nearly 100 percent of the dogs sold in pet stores and directly to consumers online and through newspaper ads. Hundreds, sometimes thousands of dogs per facility live in overcrowded and unsanitary cages without sufficient food, water, grooming, socialization, or veterinary care and therefore they frequently suffer a multitude of social, emotional, and physical conditions, including genetic disorders and deformities.
Let’s hope that the truth about puppy mill continues to make its way into the American consciousness, so we can end these disgusting practices.Click here to learn more about puppy mills.
