Remember how PETA is going to launch their porn site, which will also be filled with videos and pictures of suffering animals? Don’t worry, this video has nothing to do with ‘suffering porn’.
It’s a slightly strange and cruelty and suffering free video from the ASPCA.
Most of us know puppy mills are bad, bad things. Puppy mills are not a place filled with shiny, happy Royal Treatment dogs. They’re places of sadness and illness and cruelty, where dogs are relentlessly forced to breed over and over again. Puppies are crammed into cages and taken away from their mothers too young, then shipped out to pet stores who sell them.
While we know not to buy them, there are people out there who will buy a puppy mill puppy because they believe they’re helping out the puppy: but buying a puppy mill puppy only supports this cruel and horrible industry.
For the ASPCA, even shopping at pet stores that sell puppies is supporting the industry. Their message is quite simple: most puppies sold in pet stores come from puppy mills. If a pet store sells puppies, don’t shop there for anything.
In my humble opinion, I think this is a good message. I only shop at holistic no-pets-for-sale pet stores, where it’s about the animal, and selling high end quality products that don’t hurt the animals – and these kinds of stores won’t sell puppies because they love pets, and loving pets means trying to rid our world of puppy mills.
