Anyone that knows me at all, already knows that I have a very special place in my heart for animals, especially dogs. Living with my daughter Haley, is what I would imagine it would be like to live with Maya Dolittle. Animals of all types just seem to be drawn to her.
Every animal we have ever owned has been one that we have rescued, or a stray that wandered up on our porch and then into our hearts. In the case of Jack (Chunk) and Lady Katherine, their mama, Sassy, was a stray. Today, they are members of our family.
Apparently I have been living under a rock somewhere. I honestly had no clue of the horror that goes on behind the scenes of a puppy mill.
I am embarrassed to admit that I figured that puppy mills were heavily regulated and imagined them to be similar to quality boarding. That belief came to an abrupt end today while I was reading a heart wrenching rescue story written by Veronica of FurFantasy.com about a rescue going on right now because of a puppy mill closing.
Hearing and seeing just some of the details literally made me sick to my stomach and extremely sad. How is it possible that this is happening here today in the United States of America?
