All the images on this page were gleaned from a single web search on Webcrawler for "puppy mill" in LESS than 30 minutes. Imagine how many articles and other pictures could be gathered in one day! Yes, those are Collies in some of the images, covered in feces, urine, and the putrid remains of their dead prison-mates! It's a disgrace to treat such a noble dog, or any creature in such a way. The laws simply slap the hands of the people that do this sort of thing. It is good that I do not make the laws! I would not "slap", and I would not aim for the hands!
.
I know this sort of thing exists! I have been to a ferret mill while looking for a ferret. The rows of cages were stacked 4 high with open bottoms and the pairs in the lower three levels were covered with the excrement, afterbirth, and waste of the ones above, and all this was in a metal pole barn on a 90+ degree summer day. Needless to say I left in a foul-mouthed hell-rage and made all the necessary contacts. I never went back for fear of my temper, and that SOB wasn't worth doing time over.
.
Every time I go into a pet store now, these images, as well as others and all the articles and news stories I have read will come to mind. When I see that cute little puppy, kitten, or ferret, I'll wonder about their parents. Where are they? How are they? Could I have seen them here?
.
It changes one's perspective to say the least, (that is, if there is an ounce of compassion in one's heart). I imagine you are just a bit upset, if not outraged, angry, and choked up like me. That's good! It's what I intended! I did not sleep a wink the night I created this page, and to this day these and other images still haunt me. They still bring a tear to my eye.

IF YOU ARE NOT AFFECTED BY WHAT YOU SEE HERE, YOU ARE DEAD INSIDE. There is something fundamentally lacking in your emotional and mental makeup. Take your heart of stone and go away quietly. I stronly suggest you see a doctor, or better yet a Psychologist. Do not come back util you have been successfully treated for your problem.
