United Hope for Animals would like to support the efforts of the Humane Society of the United States on behalf of mistreated puppy mill dogs across the country. We urge you to please sign their petition.
According to the HUSU, in response to concerns about thousands of dogs who are denied basic humane care at large-scale commercial breeding facilities, The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has published a proposed rule that would close a gaping loophole in the Animal Welfare Act regulations. The rule would require large-scale breeding facilities that sell puppies sight-unseen over the Internet, by phone, or by mail to be licensed and regularly inspected for basic humane care standards.
Do your part to help improve the conditions of puppy mill dogs everywhere by supporting the efforts of the Humane Society of the United States. Not only does it help the dogs, but it will help prevent heartbreak for those families that unwittingly purchase one of these dogs from a pet store or online. Oftentimes they have untreatable genetic abnormalities or remain sickly throughout their lives because of unscrupulous breeding practices.
