People who do such things as puppy mill owners, & the pet stores & brokers who buy from them are nothing more then pure EVIL garbage & any attorney who would defend the EVIL people is no better then the people they are defending. I hope they all rot in hell.

It's so sad... They act like they aren't doing anything wrong! Can they not see the suffering they are causing?

Default To be more horrified~~~

To be more horrified just Google Amish Puppy Mills.
I got so upset I couldn't read very far into the information.
I just don't understand how anyone can be so cruel and heartless.

Sadly, nothing shocks me. There is nothing I haven't heard and or seen that shocks me anymore with the way humans treat animals and other humans. It does amaze me over and over because no matter how I try, I can't believe I live in a world where these things happen..

At the same time, I'm still shocked at the wonderful things that people do for eachother and for animals, and believe that one day...some day...probably in the hereafter, the wonderul things will be all we know...

(I have no idea why I'm so philosophical tonight...I think watching the Amish videos re: puppy mills just made me have to think beyond the horror)

And so anyone reading this should do anything big or small to try to helps stop these atrocities...

When I read about these horrific actions taken on animals and children, etc...
I just try to remember all the kindness and love that still exists in this world...
and then I go hug my own precious, innocent Yorkie and tell her how lucky she is !!! ~~~~ Just today there was an article in the newspaper about ASPCA having to do a cat rescue of 700 cats here locally. The man who ran the Caboodle Cat Ranch became overwhelmed and under funded and let the cats become ill and neglected. Can you imagine 700 cats !!!

We just left Buffalo and moved to Florida! Do you still live there? I could never go into any pet stores because I always get so sad and start to cry... And there is just no way that I could ever take all those poor animals home with me...

Of course I'm still in Buffalo! The city of good neighbors! I do know that someday I will be leaving for warmer weather (although this winter we had absolutely no snow worth mentioning or frigid weather, it is the strangest winter ever) but I will always return for the summers! You can't get pizza, roastbeef on weck, chickenwings, Webbers mustard...anywhere but here...not to mention, the way we all come together for any and every cause!

I don't think Buffalo has many petshops that sell pups outside of Steves Wonderful World of Pets, which is really in the affluent suburb of Williamsville, NY right next door...or are there some that I don't know about? Please do let me know! I do know about the cats at the well known chainstores like Pets Supplies Plus, but I did inquire about their procedures and spent alot of time talking to the various RESCUE ORGAINZIATION that display them and adopt them out. Its a necessity, not one I condone, nonetheless I do believe they are taken care of.

My daughter lives in Daytona, and loves the "paradise" of Florida.

The horrid puppy seller at McKinley Mall was chased out finally, and no longer is open, just F.Y.I.!! The City Dog Pound finally has a very good, sound and successful NO KILL adoption policy and of course our Erie County S.P.C.A. is stronger than ever and recently headed the re-organizations of the deplorable Niagara S.P.C.A. and Wyoming County S.P.C.A. who knew that right under our noses these two places were equally as bad as the horrid puppy mills up the road in PA Amish country?

I hope your enjoying Florida, I do go down there a couple times a year, its flat but beautiful! If you need any Webbers let me know I'll be glad to send you a Buffalo Pkg!!!

Dear Goodness, 700...ugggh, sadly I'm sure hes not the only one. I'm happy that they found them and were able to rescue as many as they could. Hopefully this seemingly "hoarder" with the best of intentions will be put out of business for good!!! Remember there is a difference between hoarders and responsible well organized rescue operators.

The Companion Animal Protection Society (CAPS) has done many investigations into the Hunte Corp and their breeders. I've watched some of the videos and it's heart wrenching. The Hunte Corp is just a broker and they buy dogs from various breeders. One breeder was bragging how he threatened to shoot all his dogs if the USDA inspector gave him a hard time. These dogs need our protection, but now that many people realize it's wrong to buy from a pet store, we still have to educate them about buying over the internet. A breeder who sells directly to the public needs no license at all. Please visit the breeder's home before you purchase a pup, and that includes people you meet on Yorkietalk! A good breeder will want to meet you in person, and you should insist on the same. By the way, this is a great web site that's very informative. CAPS investigates pet shops, puppy mills, breeders - stop animal abuse - Rescue, go Humane!

Don't be afraid to open the link, most of the information is written not video and even the video that interview farmers who breed dogs don't show too much. It's important for people to be aware of these things even though it's painful to see.

Your right, not too bad. Believe me I spent atleast a year researching all about this, I've seen the worst of the worst but I myself can't look anymore..But it is important to educate others, I agree! When I get around to doing a facebook page I will put a link to this video on it! Thanks for sharing.

This breaks my heart. I am SO IN LOVE with my dear little Yorkie, Kipper. I just read this in our local news this evening. I am glad that I can do my own grooming after reading this story!
