Mother dogs live in cramped wire cages resembling rabbit hutches and often stacked on top of each other. They are bred repeatedly and churn out litter after litter until their bodies are exhausted and worn out to the point where they can’t produce any more puppies. They spend their entire lives without exercise, playtime or human affection, and often without medical care. When they are used up, they are killed or sold at auction.
This Mother’s Day, Best Friends Animal Society is spreading the word about these unseen, forgotten moms by offering “I’m Tired of Puppy Mills” bracelets. Edgy, trendy, and made from recycled materials, the bracelets cost only $10, and half of the proceeds will be donated to Best Friends’ Puppies Aren’t Products campaign.Read her whole post here:
DON'T buy a dog for your Mom on Mother's Day. Go to a shelter or a rescue and take one in that has paid her dues, and then some. Puppies at pet stores are 100% from puppy mills. There is no exception.
(Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms out there!)
