Illinois Senate Bans Puppy Mill Sales And Saves Lives

One year ago   |   By iHeart Dogs

It's hard to believe that puppy mills still exist. They seem like they should be easy to shut down, but minimal breeding restrictions and pet stores fighting back make it incredibly difficult.
Most dogs bred in puppy mills are sold to pet stores, which many first-time dog parents are unaware of. So, to end this inhumane problem, Illinois is banning the sale of puppies from breeders at pet stores, making it the 5th state to prohibit pet stores from working with puppy mills. It won't solve the problem entirely, but it's a step in the right direction!
