Ban Puppy Mills



A puppy mill is a commercial dog breeding facility or backyard breeder that operates with an emphasis on maximizing seller profits, often with a complete disregard for animal welfare.   Conditions in puppy mills are completely substandard and inhumane.  The puppies produced in mills are often sold to pet stores, online or directly to the public via online advertising and often have significant health issues.  It is estimated that there are at least 10,000 puppy mills in the U.S. Fewer than 3,000 of these are regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Animal Aid USA is committed to abolishing puppy mills.  We work with federal and local legislators to bring awareness to this issue and also encourage pet stores owners to consider working with their local rescue groups to facilitate a adoption partnership.
