United Against Puppy Mills is a 100% all volunteer non-profit advocacy group.
What is a puppy mill?
Puppy mills are dog breeding operations that produce purebred and mixed/hybrid puppies for profit. Their sole purpose is to produce puppies as inexpensively as possible for maximum retail profit, often disregarding living standards and basic medical care.
Don't contribute to the problem
Your purchase of a mill puppy (often billed as “farm-” or “family-raised” or purchased in pet stores and through websites) continues the cycle of cruelty by putting more money in the pockets of those involved, allowing the profit to be reinvested into the business so that the breeding continues.
