*Currently, the DDAF is asking Congress for tougher puppy mill legislation: A federal Puppy Uniform Protection Statute (PUPS), which will amend the AWA and force high-volume breeders who sell directly to the public - including over the Internet - to comply with federal licensing and inspection requirements of the USDA. **Puppy mills are horrendous places, that operate as dog breeding grounds, and don't maintain them in good health, in fact, filth.
OUR PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH PUPPY MILLS: Two foster dogs that Tom and I had for a couple of days were rescued from puppy mills. They had matted fur, were filthy, had bad teeth, way overgrown nails and didn't know what grass was when we put them outside (we had to carry them outside). They also had never, ever been held before. These dogs were about 6 or 7 years old! Horrible.* So, consider donating to the DDAF to get rules imposed on Puppy Mills or put them out of business.
