Hundreds of thousands of dogs in India suffer in puppy mills. They are made prisoners of greed, locked in small dirty cages, freeze in winters and swelter in the summers, never get out of their prisons. They are bred over and over again.
Agony in puppy mills
- Dogs are kept in crammed/small wire cages for their entire lives.
- Female dogs are bred the first time they come into heat and then on bred every heat cycle until their poor worn out bodies can’t reproduce any longer and are later left on the streets.
- Puppy mills maximise their profits by not spending adequate money on proper food, housing or veterinary care.
- Dogs are found to be covered with matted, filthy hair and overall in a pathetic condition.
- Many have emotional problems, are psychologically scarred from the mind numbing boredom of being imprisoned in a small cage for a year and develop a habit of going round and round in circles for hours or barking at walls for hours.
- Breeding dogs are caged, sometimes soiled in their own excrement leading to genetic defects or lifelong physical deformities.
- Puppies are taken away from their mothers early and sold to brokers or middlemen who pack them in crates for resale.
The picture is sad, scary and horrifying. So, next time you think of bringing home a pet, adopt one from an ethical breeder or a shelter.
