A puppy mill is any place that puppies are abused. This can be a breeder who keeps their dogs in cramped cages, unclean conditions and various other abuses. They are usually playing a numbers game, trying to sell lots of dogs with no thought to quality control or conditions or simply the comfort of the animals.
Unfortunately, puppy mills do exist in Wisconsin. So please take time to write a letter to your legislator or get involved in other ways to safeguard these dogs who can’t fend for themselves.
