Tragically, for many of these commercial breeding survivors this will be the first time they have experienced this kind of compassion, having only known the lowest standards of care and were subjected to horrific living conditions. Our mission to educate the public and help stop the cruelty of the commercial breeding industry is making a difference. Six states have now passed laws prohibiting the retail sale of puppies in pet stores, and over 400 municipalities across the US have passed similar bans.
There is much more to be done. As retail opportunities diminish for these commercial breeding facilities, their animals are at risk. In fact, National Mill Dog Rescue has seen twice the number of animals being surrendered over recent months. Now more than ever we need to work together to ensure these animals are not needlessly euthanized.
For our 50 new mutt-i-grees, they will soon have the chance to be cherished pets, and experience many more ‘firsts’ like an affectionate belly rub or the joy of chasing a tennis ball. With your support, we can give even more animals the better life they deserve.
