The ASPCA is posting photos of the horrible conditions seen at puppy mills – taken by taken by the U.S. Department of Agriculture of the last several years.
You can view the images on the ASPCA NoPetStorePuppies website.
The Washington Post ran a story recently concerning the campaign and in it quoted a lobbyist for the Missouri Federation of Animal Owners.
“Much of the information is old, and it’s a publicity stunt for the ASPCA … and other radical animal rights groups to garner money from the unknowing public.”
That’s an odd slant, given that the “unknowing public” still buys puppies online and from stores. It is the members of knowing public who are going to shelters and rescue groups to adopt new family members.
