Close them all down. Prosecute the owners and make it stick. Not a slap on the wrist. And once again...no breeding or pet stores till the rescues and shelters are empty.

Thank God. We have a puppy mill dog he steals food continuosly no matter how many times he is fed. When we received him it was like he went crazy just realizing he was no longer in a 24hr. 7day cage. He is slowly being socialized. His sister who also was never socialized has bad hips that often times she can't get up and is in pain . She needs a replaacement which is very costly and so she lives at a vets. Also at the vets is an english bull dog puppy who can not hold itis poop because of a rectal defect and is also from a litter bred in a puppy mill. She will most likely be put down as many people want a healthy animal from the very start. She has such a sweet personality but needs constant cleaning of her run where she spends all her living hours. Another from an Amish puppy mill we call an is a German Shepherd with extra long legs with a shepherd's genes that we know of. Is 11 mos. old and never socialized. Very sad that man's best fgriends had lived in quarters where there is basically no human contact, never leaving their pen, most times pens with wire flooring which also are filthy living quarters in their own excrement in the cold and heat of the season with at most times miminal water and food where rats and mice eat their food supply. Adult Male and Female dogs sprend their breeding years in the same pen they were born in only to produce more pups and never leaving the pen. Born into this world only to be held hostage to serve the owners financial needs and wants by breeding. Can you imaagine a pup never being able to chase a butterfly or feel the loving contact of a human hand against it's face. This is only the tip of the iceberg. Tough, strong Bills and laws need to be inacted and passed to prevent this horrific treatment of God's creatures and man's companions.

Exactly. And the last part of your statement would be a large solution to the problem. We need to pressure our congressmen and governors.

Perfect solution. Our laws are way to lenient that this farming of animals continues

I wondered the same when I read the location . But that does not go without to say it happens in most of our counties especially Lancaster where rural and Amish country makes it easy money and locations are hard to track and pin down.
