Maddie’s Fund and the Humane Society of the United States have joined forces to create the “Don’t Buy Into Puppy Mills” public awareness campaign. Visit their informative website to learn how you can help stop the cruel puppy mill industry. There are lots of things concerned animal lovers can do to make a real difference in the lives of these animals. Just click on the provided links to sign a petition, contact your local legislators, and report suspected puppy mill activity to the authorities.


Don’t forget to use the hashtag #stoppuppymills on your social media accounts and spread the word about alternative ways to find a new puppy…especially adoption!…besides pet stores and online ads. The HSUS estimates that 2 million puppies are born into mills each year. We can help reduce that number.


The campaign has created a very moving video featuring kids talking about where puppies come from which can serve as a great learning tool for anyone interested in educating the next generation about puppy mills:

  1. We have here also problems with puppy mills. Just today was in a nwespaper a story of a puppy bought from a mill. I couldn’t read it, but under tho photo was a text that he died under age of one year. These mills are something I don’t understand, who can be so cruel.

  2. As you can imagine this topic has become near and dear to my own heart as we continue to socialize and treat Elsa’s health problems. Puppy mills are just vile and need to be eliminated! Thank you for bringing this issue up.
