What's wrong with buying pet store puppies?

Here is a picture of a puppy mill "reject" - one of the many who never makes it to the pet store. For every cute and healthy looking puppy at the pet store, there are MANY like this little girl who are killed or dumped, or like this one, offered to anyone at a "Pit bull and Rottie Sell Out." There are also many who die enroute to the pet store because of the horrendous conditions they are subjected to during transport.

Do you really want to put money into the pockets of the people who are responsible for this??

This baby has no hair and is infested with parasites and worms. So the next time you are tempted to spend big bucks on a pet store puppy, think of all this suffering that went into the "product" and walk away!

I'm sorry Chico!!! I guess I just didn't think that was bad, compared to a lot of other images I've seen.

Don't worry - someone took pity on her, and she is now in a loving home with owners who are trying to resolve her health issues!!

I hope there's a special hell for people who are able to do this to innocent fur-babies.
