Since I have started blogging, I have loved learning so much more about my K9 pals. The one topic that is close to my heart, yet something that is hard for me to stomach is talking about puppy mills.
Most of you might not know that my mom was rescued from a puppy mill. She was rescued here in Minnesota by an organization called RAGOM (Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota). When she was placed in foster care they found out she was pregnant with me and my 8 siblings.
According to the Humane Society 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. (source)
This past month the Humane Society came out with a report called: 101 Puppy Mills: A Selection of Problem Puppy Mills in the United States in 2014.
I encourage everyone to take a look at the list and share it with others. Continuing to educate the public is the best way to put a stop to these inhumane commercial dog-breeding facilities.
