Again and again I’ve railed about puppy mills and the horrific conditions and the desperate need for legislation. We’ve, thankfully, been seeing more and more raids of puppy mills and the prisoners, little dogs and puppies, some of them who have spent years in cages, finally getting a chance at a life.

This video is from Colorado Springs, CO, where a rescue, Mill Dog Rescue Network, recently took in 125 dogs from a Missouri puppy mill. Some of the footage is shot undercover and shows the conditions many of the puppy mills dogs live in all their lives. And trust me, the conditions shown are not even the worst, I have seen even more horrors.

Puppy Mills, A Look Inside

If you’re interested in adopting a dog from the Mill Dog Rescue Network, you can visit their website to find out more.

And on a sidenote, in the video the reporter mentions a pet store, Pet City at Citadel Mall who says that they don’t get their puppies from puppy mills. Since most large commercial breeding operations are just puppy mills and reputable breeders are not going to ever sell their puppies to a pet store, I find their claims highly questionable. Just because a breeder is USDA licensed, does not mean it is not a puppy mill and just because you can get AKC papers also does not mean the puppy is not coming from a puppy mill.
