Today I have to say goodbye to a young soul who never had the chance to live life to its fullest. A soul that was a victim of bad luck, circumstance, greed and downright evil. Regardless, this beautiful soul did experience love from many, and that I know he took with him across the rainbow bridge. I will miss this beautiful boy greatly and though my heart breaks, I feel blessed to have been a better part of his very short life. RIP Shadow. May we meet again. 😞💔 #adoptdontshop#enddogfighting#pittielove#adogslife#adogslove#reportdogfighting#reportpuppymills
Dozens of dogs were removed from a home today in Jefferson County. In this case the owner contacted authorities themselves for assistance, but we'd like to take this opportunity to remind you to PLEASE REPORT SUSPECTED ANIMAL CRUELTY TO THE AUTHORITIES. You can be the someone who does "something" just with a simple phone call. Screenshot this pic to save it for future reference! #adoptdontshop#stopanimalcruelty#hsus#reportdogfighting#reportpuppymills#littlerock#barkansas
#please checkout this #care2petition regarding #amish#puppymills in #Minnesota: "Despite widespread public outcry, six farmers in Minnesota have been granted approval to breed even more dogs on their massive puppy mill #farms. The new permits were approved despite inspections by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (#USDA) which found that the farmers were operating dog breeding #kennels illegally and without any regard for animal welfare. Photos showed dogs in deplorable conditions - including animals with rotten teeth, matted fur created skin injuries, and eyes that were crusted shut. Numerous dogs were too weak to stand. Meanwhile, an estimated 90,000 unwanted animals are euthanized each year in Minnesota shelters." these facilities supply unhealthy, indiscriminately bred pups to #petstores as well as deplorable online "#puppyboutique" fronts like #woofwoofpuppies#pursepalspups and #bettysyorkies made popular by @instagram#bark4change
Hard to believe that it's been 77 weeks since we got on Instagram! Thank you for being there and sharing your pups with us. We are thankful to be a part of this compassionate community of doglovers! ❤️ Ma, Bella and Chelsea.
#buyerbeware#responsiblebreeders have websites, post pictures of their puppies parents(and encourage you to come meet them), and have more requirements to buying one of their puppies than whether or not you qualify for financing; you're adding a member to your family, not buying a car #research
"There are over 10,000 #puppymills in the U.S, many of which are keeping dogs in deplorable and inhumane conditions. But operating a commercial breeding kennel is not necessarily illegal. Many of these facilities are operating legally, meaning that they are operating because laws are lacking to regulate that industry or they’re operating within the confines of present laws." #takeaction tell the #usda that dogs deserve better care #animallivesmatter#bark4change
