Happy National Puppy Day!
Sure, National Puppy Day is the perfect time to celebrate the super-cuteness of puppies…but it’s also the time to speak out about the cruelties associated with puppy mills and further our mission for a nation of puppy-free pet stores. To help you celebrate, we’ve come up with a few actions you can take today to help end puppy mill abuse:
Take the Puppy Mill Pledge
That puppy who charmed you through the pet shop window most likely came from a puppy mill. Please sign our pledge against puppy mills and promise not to buy your next pet or any pet supplies from retail stores that sell puppies.
Join the Fight
Inform your state and federal legislators that you are disturbed by the inhumane treatment of dogs in puppy mills, and would like to see legislation passed to protect these dogs. Keep up to date on legislation to ban puppy mills by joining the ASPCA Advocacy Brigade.
If someone you know is planning on buying a puppy, please direct them to our puppy mill information page. Let them know that there are perfectly adorable dogs—of all breeds and sizes—waiting to be adopted at shelters across the nation.
