FACTS:

  • 17-30% of dogs in the United States are purchased from "breeders" and pet shops (Source: ASPCA)

  • Approximately 5 to 7 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year, over half are killed simply because there is no one to adopt them (Source: ASPCA)

  • If the above 17-30% of dogs purchased from "breeders" and pet shops were instead acquired from shelters, puppy mills would cease to exist.
