Puppies, cute, and loveable puppies. How would you feel if I told you hundreds of those puppies were dying every day in pest infested, overcrowded, and diseased puppy mills? Puppy mills are one of the most common places where puppies and dogs die. That’s why puppy mills need to get banned in the United States. They make the female dogs suffer, most puppies don’t make it out alive, and they neglect and mentally abuse the dogs. One reason why puppy mills should be banned is that they make the female dogs suffer. Puppy mills take every opportunity to breed the females, usually they have little to no recovery time in between litters. Once they make them breed till they can’t anymore, they kill them. In addition, the parents of the puppy are most likely not going to make it out of the puppy mill alive. Here is where I found this information- (www.aspca.org) Another reason puppy mills should be banned is that most puppies don’t make it out alive. They have absolutely no proper health care, it’s actually common for dogs to get fatal diseases like heart or kidney disease. Adding on to that is they never clean the cages, the cages are also made out of wire so the pups scratch and completely ruin their paws. Also …show more content…
Most of the time, when the puppies are 6-8 weeks old they remove them from their pool and stuff them in a tight small cage with no other dogs. When this happens the puppies feel like they were abandoned. Also they don’t have the dogs for the quality, they have them for quantity. This also makes the owners of the dog pay for lots of vet visits, plus it can also cause a personality disorder which also may lead to the owner abandoning it. In addition, when they don’t want the dogs they give them to animal shelters, but when the animal shelters get to full they have to kill those abandoned and unwanted dogs. Here is where I found this information-

Jenna Jensen’s article discusses how puppy mills are known to be very inhumane. Due to this puppy’s bodies are worn from being bred multiple times. Their teeth are rotted out, and they have cysts between their toes from the wires they have been forced to stand on. In effort to stop inhumane behavior, 54 Florida municipalities have banned the sale of puppies from puppy mills. Hillsborough County has been noted to be the next county to take a stand against puppy mills.
The treatment of animals should defiantly be considered when one is raising them for meat or using them for science experiments. One objection can be made about Norcross’s argument, he compares puppies to live stock and factory raised meat to torturing puppies in someone’s basement. I feel that this argument was a good attention grabber but to compare puppies to live stock in my opinion is not a good comparison. Why? In our culture puppies and dogs are part of the family and live stock is a food source.
Why not take all the effort in producing dogs in puppy mills, and putting it into better use, like finding homes for unwanted or homeless dogs in animal shelters. Some of the most well behaved dogs come from animal shelters. Shelters take in unwanted, lost, or homeless animals off the street and find them loving homes. They are also a lot cheaper than getting a puppy from a puppy mill. Puppy mills over charge on dogs that aren’t well behaved, fixed, and a lot of them are sick animals.
A puppy mill is “an establishment that breeds puppies for sale, typically on an intensive basis and in conditions regarded as inhumane.” There are thousands of puppy mills in the United States, some of which are not recorded. Therefore, the ASPCA has concluded that there could be over 10,000 puppy mills in the United States. There are many issues regarding puppy mills, from the way they treat the animals and the upkeep of their environment. Many of the puppy mills are not regulated and not licensed to own a puppy mill.
Many dogs are prone to lots of health problems like heart diseases, kidney disorder, and epilepsy.

When getting a
Are Puppy Mills Bad? A young girl got a puppy for Christmas; weeks later her puppy died. It was ruled that this puppy died from a severe respiratory disease which caused the air passages to become closed resulting in slow suffocation. It was later discovered that this puppy had been raised in a puppy mill.
You could save an animal from drowning, but you could save a person from drowning too; the choice is difficult. You could protest for animals to have rights and not be tortured at slaughterhouses and still eat them from factories that do things like kill them in an abusive way. Animal rights, animals should have some rights with some limitations. I have issues involving this topic about animal rights because i have mixed emotions about how we can experiment and torture animals but still have them as pets. In articles by Jeff McMahan, “Eat Animals The Nice Way”, and by Maureen Nandi Mitra, “Animals Are Persons, too”, they talk from two different positions where we should eat animals and another where we shouldn’t experiment on them and let them be.
When you look in the window at a cute little puppy at a pet store have you ever thought about what that puppy’s life might have been like before they got to that store? Frankly speaking, I never did until I started reading about puppy mills. Puppy farms or puppy mills are institutions of cruelty usually hidden from public view where dogs are housed in shocking appalling conditions. It is not unusual for large number of dogs to be crammed together in filthy pens and cages. As a pet owner, animal lover, or as a concerned adult, it is time for us to save this helpless dogs and puppy as puppy mills are extremely inhumane and need to be stopped.

This leaves the dogs traumatized and rethinking who they should trust.” If you adopt it’ll help a dog live the life it’s always deserved. About 4 million cats and dogs are euthanized each year because there simply aren't enough willing homes to adopt them. Since there is an overpopulation, animal shelters urge owners to spay or neuter their pets to exclude overpopulation. Also, It’s more
Abstract Human life is precious, then how about animals? Ending human life is considered as unethical and this is against the law. However, this does not apply to animals. Even though most families treat their animals as part of their family members, animal euthanasia is still a controversial issue nowadays. Millions of dogs are euthanized in each year and several methods are used by the veterinarian to put the animal to death.
Animal testing should be banned because it is an unethical process that subjects animals to so much pain. In addition, it should be banned because, it is inaccurate, unreliable, and its benefits to human beings have not yet been fully confirmed by the current research. Animal testing should be banned because it is an unethical process. According to statistics, about 128 million animals which include guinea pigs, cats, rats, hamsters, dogs, frogs, hamsters, dogs,
Our society likes to have the latest and greatest products. People don’t realize how unethical animal testing really is. But, animals suffer physical damage, and we already have plenty of products, we don’t need any more. We can grow human cells in labs so that we don’t have to test on animals. Animal testing is unethical and unnecessary, because animals suffer for products we do not need, and don’t need to be tested on because there is technology to test products on human cells ethically.
Firstly, animal testing should be banned is because of its cruelty. The
