Puppy mills cause needless suffering. Meredith Lee/The HSUS

As Mother’s Day approaches (in many countries), we remember the mother dogs who are suffering in puppy mills. They spend their lives in cramped wire cages, often with little human contact and barely enough food and water to stay alive as they churn out puppies for sale at pet stores and on the Internet.

In recent years, HSI has rescued more than 1,000 dogs from such facilities in Canada, but tens of thousands of animals still languish in appalling conditions, waiting for help to come.

Puppy Mill Action Week begins May 6 and we encourage supporters to take action each day to help shut down this terrible industry. Start by signing our pledge to end the cycle of cruelty.
