It's National Puppy Day. Lily lived the first years of her life in a puppy mill. Her days and nights were spent in a cage, with a few scraps of newspaper on which to give birth and nurse the constant litters of puppies she was forced to produce. In 2013, Lily was rescued when the puppy mill she was confined in was shut down in a joint effort by the @spcamontreal, @hsiglobal, and the Quebec government. Today, she lives in a new home where is loved as the sweet, forgiving individual she is. She still suffers pain due to the cruelty she suffered.
Most puppies sold for profit still come from puppy mills, for-profit breeders who keep mother dogs in unimaginable conditions for their entire lives, forcing them to give birth to litter after litter of babies who will be sold in pet stores or online.
Please choose to adopt and stop this needless suffering.
