It's National Adopt a Dog Month

Welcome to National Adopt a Dog Month.

Since it is Adopt a Dog Month I am finally going to post something that has been bugging me for a while. This is the one post I hope will go viral and reach everyone.

Puppy mills exist for one reason and one reason only... profit! They want to make some fast cash and they don't care about the animals they hurt to do it.

The only way to stop a puppy mill is to take away their profit and its a lot easier then you think. All you have to do is when you decide to get a new companion for your family DON'T go to a pet store this is where most mill dogs are sold. I don't care what they tell you about where they got the dog!

Do you think a store that is selling puppy mill dogs are going to be honest with you?

Instead go to your local shelter and adopt a dog. Not only will you be giving a much needed home to a wonderful companion but you will be saving the life of the dog that can now take his place.

I know what your thinking...

BUT I want a certain breed of dog or what if they don't have a dog I like? The answer is simple! Go to

This wonderful site lets you search local shelters for your perfect New Best Friend. You can search by breed, age, sex, distance from you, whether or not its good with kids or other pets. It is a great (and did I mention FREE) service to people looking for a new dog.

If everyone started adopting dogs instead of buying the overpriced, inbreed and ill dogs from pet stores then PUPPY MILLS would collapse because they would stop making money off the dogs they don't give a damn about.

Still want a pure breed then visit The for a wonderful checklist you can take with you to meet your potential Breeder and help you avoid the pitfalls of a puppy mill purchase!
