Poor Dogs like this are trapped in these wire cages, hardly seeing the light of day sometimes, just to be bred to death at secret places called Puppy Mills. Afterwords they get sold to pet stores. Of course, organizations are trying to stop this and they are stopping some, but you can help too. You can report any unusual noises, like lots and lots of barking, meaning, too much barking. Or report people that are suspicious. A lot of puppies are sold to pet stores, so if you want to buy one from a pet store, perhaps ask where the dog came from, or if it isn't very happy to see people or cowers from you, that is awful. It means that the dog is not comfortable around people, which could mean that they went through abuse or neglect in the past. If you ask me, it is better to adopt from a shelter.

New Statistics

Approximately 5 million to 7 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized (60 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats). Shelter intakes are about evenly divided between those animals relinquished by owners and those picked up by animal control. These are national estimates; the percentage of euthanasia may vary from state to state.
