I hear it all too often. “I’m all for animal rights! I’m a voice for the animals!” But, are you really?
When I rescued Wynston, he was dying. Starving, abused and clinging to life at just 6 months old, he managed to hang in there long enough for me to save him. Wynston was left to die because “he was ugly and wouldn’t sell” according to his abuser, who is now in prison for her cruelty to 76 dogs. Wynston was born in her puppy mill.
When I was in college, I had to take a public speaking class. We had to give 5 speeches throughout the semester. All of my speeches were on dog fighting. I’ll never forget my persuasive speech. I was attempting to persuade my audience how brutal and cruel dog fighting is.
Puppy mills are large commercial operations that are created for the purpose of breeding dogs for money. Profit is priority over the dogs’ heath and well being. Puppy mill dogs used for breeding are abused, neglected and their offspring come with a slew of health problems. We must work together to shut down puppy mills and stores that support the sale of the puppies.
