When I see an image like this, my heart breaks a little. Because like the words on this poster say, “her (dog shown) only hope of escaping a lifetime of forced breeding is to die from abuse first”, there is simply no other way to say it more accurately. In puppy mills across the country, and in this particular case in Wisconsin, animals are forced to breed without concern for their physical and emotional needs, and then killed at the end of their reproductive lives.
Spread the word about this atrocity, and support your local animal welfare organizations in helping to end the puppy mill industry.
