Want to help stop puppy mills?
There are many ways to advocate against puppy mills, including:
- Talk to your family, friends, and coworkers about puppy mills to make sure they are aware of them and how to avoid them
. Don’tbuy pet supplies from stores that sell dogs. To find a puppy friendly store in your area you can text “PUPPY” to 30644 to see puppy-friendly stores near you (message and data rates apply). Please note you are texting The Humane Society of the United States, not Ohioans Against Puppy Mills.
- Help your local pet store transition to a humane model that doesn’t sell dogs.
- Spread awareness of puppy mills via social media.
- Write letters to the editor to help inform the public of puppy mills.
