Puppy Mills are large scale commercial breeding facilities where profit is given priority over the well-being of the dogs. Dogs are housed in unsanitary and overcrowded conditions and are deprived of proper food, water, veterinary care, and socialization. Between litters, female dogs are given little to no recovery time in order to maximise profit, which is detrimental to the health of these dogs. There are numerous amounts of effects that cause these dogs to suffer for the rest of their lives, including but not limited to, behavioral and health problems such as deafness, blindness, many different diseases of the kidney and heart, and shortened or missing limbs, just to name a few. Fear, shyness, and sensitivity are a few behavioral effects
Zoo enclosures can only hold so many animals so this surplus of them makes the living conditions even worse. On the contrary, it is cool to see animals that you would not normally get the chance to see, but despite this, animals need to be well taken care of in a good environment.

Shelters currently hold pets beyond their originally designed capacity. Pets get dropped off or picked up off the streets for so many reasons. Animals get taken to, or not taken from shelters because they are either strays, victims of abuse, present behavioral issues, left behind due to family moving, abandon from different family experiences, not bought from overpricing, or the family had no time for it. All of which result in psychological effects of trust issues, loneliness, feeling unloved, anxiety, and
In my community, there is a real big problem with the amount of stray dogs on the streets and city animal shelters are so full that there is little they can do to help. There isn’t much funding from the government for animal shelters in Puerto Rico, which makes it a little harder to clean up the streets. And not only is it dangerous to have a large amount of stray dogs in your area, but also could be harmful to the health of the people. The kill rate for the animal shelters in Puerto Rico are at 97%, which are ridiculously high but still does nothing to solve the issue. My goal is to help my community by providing the alternatives to solving the matter of the amount of stray dogs while also lowering the kill rate for those dogs that have not been properly treated or adopted.
