  13. Mary says – reply to this


    13

    Perez, it seems like you should heed your own advice; your own precious Teddy, being a "designer breed", is most likely a puppy mill product. You paid a pretty penny for a mutt when you could've saved a life by adopting from a shelter.

  14. fitz says – reply to this


    14

    mutts are among the smarted dogs because of less inbreeding, not to mention in the most need of a home. so help save a dog and one that's actually intelligent; adopt.

    puppy mills need to be stopped. do not buy from these horrible "businesses". just take a visit to your local human society and you'll see what over-breeding does.

    Thank you so much for continuing to post about worthwhile causes that involve puppy mills. There is also a huge problem with an overabundance of cats in our city shelters. At the Animal Care and Control shelter in NYC, they have to kill at least 30 cats and kittens, pregnant cats and puppies, older dogs, etc. because of lack of space.
    It is not the shelter's fault, it is the people who dump their pets for "moving" or "no time" or "allergies" or "new baby."

    If you must have a puppy, go to www.petfinder.com or to your local shelter. Same for kittens. DO NOT BREED OR BUY WHEN SHELTER ANIMALS DIE! BREEDERS THEMSELVES SHOULD BE SPAYED AND NEUTERED!

    thank you for doing this perez. ive been waiting for this cause to come up

    puppy mills are the scum of the earth and the people that run them deserve to be treated just as horribly as they are taking "care" of their dogs at these places. sick sick sick

    Hypocrite much, Perez? Where the fuck did you buy YOUR dog? Breeders & petstores are just as bad, if not WORSE than Puppymills, you jergoff!
    PUPPYKILLER PEREZ!

  24. Puzzled says – reply to this


    24

    Re: Mary – Ok, I believe as much as the next guy that people should take a good look at adoption before they invest a ton of money into a "designer dog". BUT…if Perez's puppy is the product of a puppy mill, isn't it great that the dog was saved from that life? AAAAANNNNNDDDDD, just because a dog is expensive or "designer", does that mean they don't deserve a good home? I mean I'm a MAJOR dog lover, and being one, I believe a dog's a dog, no matter where it came from. They all deserve the same chance.

    Re: Puzzled – Yes ALL dogs and cats deserve a safe comfortable home. HOWEVER, if you buy from the puppy mills you keep them in business.

    BREEDING SHOULD BE REGULATED BY THE GOVERNMENT SINCE OUR SHELTERS MASS MURDER MILLIONS OF COMPANION ANIMALS "EVERY SINGLE FREAKING YEAR"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    STOP THE MASS MURDER!

  27. adopt a shelter doggie says – reply to this


    27

    There are so many adorable loving dogs in need of homes at shelters around the world. But as long as people continue to insist on buying purebreds, such as your dog Teddy, these inhumane puppy mills will continue to exist. It's great that you are posting to bring awareness to this wonderful cause, but I wish that Teddy was one of those wonderful dogs from shelters that need homes too. On the day that you bought Teddy, there were thousands of dogs put to death in shelters because nobody adopted them.

    Thank you so much for continuing to post about worthwhile causes that involve puppy mills. There is also a huge problem with an overabundance of cats in our city shelters. At the Animal Care and Control shelter in NYC, they have to kill at least 30 cats and kittens, pregnant cats a day. Puppies and pregnant dogs are also put down daily in huge numbers.
    It is not the shelter's fault, it is the people who dump their pets for "moving" or "no time" or "allergies" or "new baby." Shelters do not have the space or money to house all of the incoming dogs and cats. Most are not strays, but are owner abandoned pets.

    Breeders are selfish. Adopt a shelter pet! Spay and Neuter!

    YEY!
    I sent Perez A link for this !

  31. Rachel says – reply to this


    31

    Puzzled, that is not the point. Every dog deserves a good home, but there will always be some idiot who will buy that pet store dog or bred dog for sale.
    It is a simple question of supply and demand. Buying is not adopting. Adopting is rescuing from a shelter or from a adoption site of homeless pets such as www.petfinder.com

    Supply and demand, people!
    Pets are not "designer accessories" either. A mutt shouldn't be considered to be worth less than a purebred.

  32. SMR says – reply to this


    32

    The worst site I have ever seen is www.dcdogfinders.com. These people are nothing but a ruthless, disgusting puppy mill. Please don't ever buy a dog from them!

  34. Jennifer says – reply to this


    34

    AMEN! I work for the Humane Society at a local animal shelter, and in our small county alone, we take in about 7000 animals per year. Sadly, too many of them don't make it. SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR ANIMALS!!

  35. Lindsay says – reply to this


    35

    I agree-
    completely hilarious that YOU, Ms. Perez, probably got your little pure bread bitch from a doggy store and it's probably a puppy mill dog as well.
    Highly doubt you got it from your local humane society.

  36. charitable says – reply to this


    36

    I guess this is your way of being a humanitarian, at least in your mind. You are putting up charities almost eveyday. How much do you give? what background do you have to tell us what charity is good? The Human society is a good cause, a better cause would be if you actually did what you print-is your dog from a puppy mill? to support the humane society in stopping puppy mills, would be adopting a dog/puppy from a pound. Most people don't have extra money now a days, let them chose what they can give too. CHOOSE ONE, PEREZ, AND MAYBE YOU WILL BE CONSIDERED A HUMANITARIAN. NOT JUST PRINTING A CHARITY A DAY. consider doing some research and pick one cause.

  37. Miss B says – reply to this


    37

    I adopted a senior dog from a shelter and she is the most amazing dog ever! Dogs are a BIG responsibility, so be ready for that, if you are considering adoption.
    Oprah just did a show on puppy mills a few weeks back. Most dogs don't even know how to walk because they have been kept in RABBIT cages there entire lives for the sole purpose of breeding.
    ALWAYS ADOPT. GET YOUR PET SPAYED OR NEUTERED.
    Thanks for caring about the little ones.

  38. Regina says – reply to this


    38

    Charitable - I would never discourage anyone from promoting any charity! Sometimes the exposure is worth more than a one time donation. IT is bringing awareness to millions!

    Thanks Perez. I daresay that if we can shut down puppy mills and that if everyone will spay and neuter their pets, the pet overpopulation problem will no longer exist.

  41. callan says – reply to this


    41

    OMG! Perez thank you sooooooooo much! this is the best cuase in the world and everyone should be apart of it! STOP PUPPY MILLS. BUY FROM PRIVATE, RESPECTABLE BREEDERS!

  42. Max's New Mama says – reply to this


    42

    Thank you Perez! I just adopted my first rescue yesterday and he's now sleeping next to me on the couch in his new loving home. If anyone saw the Oprah episode from last month on Puppy Mills and the overpopulation of pets, please help spread the word on how horrible those places are. I will never buy a dog from a breeder or pet store again. And don't forget to spay and nueter your pets!

  47. Casey says – reply to this


    47

    You people are idiots. There is nothing wrong with ETHICAL, RESPONSIBLE breeders, which is a whole world away from PUPPY MILLERS. Puppy millers do not health test each of their dogs (which adds up way over $3,000.00 dollars), do not make a future owner sign numerous contracts INCLUDING spay and neuter contract, puppy millers do not do home inspections of future owners, and puppy millers DO NOT take back your dog at any time in it's livetime for whatever reason. Responsible, ethical breeders have no more than 1 or 2 litters per year, while puppy millers can have over HUNDREDS of litters a year.

    There is nothing wrong with buying from a responsible breeder. Puppy millers are not responsible breeders.

    regina-Not every charitiy is good, I what to know if he checks these charities out. I worked in the not-for-profit area, and where I worked was legitimate, some 'famous' charities I came into contact with had very little money going to the cause. About 80% of money taken in should be used for the cause. 20% for administrative. Guidestar.org helps people find out if a charity is legitimate. Sooo many people got ripped off after 9/11 by charities that seemed real because 'survivor' police, 'fireman' were in their names. The 'charities' kept the money. I feel that the majority of people reading these blogs are intelligent enough to know where to give money, that is if they have extra money to give nowadays.

    In case you didn't know….The HSUS is NOT in any way affiliated with your local humane societies. In fact the Humane Society of the United States has NO shelters and does not save animals. It is an organization very similar to PETA which is why I will not support this.

  56. vet says – reply to this


    56

    Yes it's best to adopt a dog, but not all dogs that aren't adopted come from puppy mills. Dogs bought from PET STORES are almost guaranteed to come from a puppy mill but there are reputable breeders that take care of their animals and breed them on a small scale, well-managed basis.
    This poor treatment is the same as any production animal be it, dogs, cows, pigs or chickens, but puppy mills are a great place to start. This cause grabs the attention of the general public and will then open the door for better treatment of animals on a larger scale.

  57. af says – reply to this

    Thank you g, exactly what I was thinking. Perez you could have adopted a dog from the shelter. Only 25% of the dogs that enter shelters get adopted.

    This is the ONLY cause you have posted I agree with! Is it wrong that I'd rather give money to help animals, than give money to help beaners or Africans?
    For your next "save the children" cause give me an address to send rubbers. I have some "Stop The Fuckin" shirts for them also. Their slogan can be "Down on your luck? DONT FUCK!" or "Life is a suckin? STOP FUCKIN"

    Perez your job it to rip people apart. If I wanted a heart warming message I can go to millions of other sites.

    Support your LOCAL animal shelter and rescue groups. They need donations of all kinds…money, old towels and blankets, laundry soap, trash bags, volunteers, etc.
    And don't go buy the latest "designer breed" like Perez did. The euthanasia rate at the shelter I volunteer for is 80%!!!! Not enough homes and too many assholes not spay/neutering and not responsible to the COMMITMENT of owning a pet.
    IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO CARE FOR A PET FOR 15 + YEARS OF ITS LIFE, CLEAN UP IT'S SHIT, PISS AND VOMIT, SPEND MONEY ON VET CARE, TRAINING, FOOD AND GROOMING, SPENDING TIME ON WALKING AND GIVING ATTENTION TO YOUR PET, AND STAYING COMMITTED TO THIS PET WHETHER YOU MOVE, HAVE A BABY OR DEVELOP SUDDEN CONVENIENT ALLERGIES WHEN YOU GET BORED WITH THE ANIMAL, THEN
    DO
    NOT
    EVER

    Human Society of the U.S. (HSUS) is a political hack organization that doesn't provide a single cent to save animals. By all means, support your local SPCA, but PLEASE don't support the people at HSUS (who do not in any way care or rescue animals of any kind). Their agenda is to eliminate all pets. They don't do any rescue and they don't care or provide for any animals.

    Stupid liberals! Those puppies wouldn't even be born if it weren't for puppy mills. It's better to live a sad life than never to have lived at all, duh! And puppy mills are good for the economy, too, you stupid Communists! The reason that puppy mills exist in the first place is because there's a competitive market for puppies, duh! If you shut down the puppy mills then there's less competition and people have to pay more for puppies, and then some people who want puppies get shut out of the market. Wake up, America! Puppy mills are dictated by democracy and the free market, and animal rights activists are STOOPID. America is going down the tubes thanks to them.

    Re: Casey – Casey, there is no such thing as a "reputable breeder" when there are too many dogs and cats in the world, and not enough homes. It is common sense. If you want a certain breed of dog, there are breed rescues for every kind. Breeders are also the problem.

  76. Lo says – reply to this

    Regardless of where you got Teddy, THANK you for increasing awareness about puppy mill horrors.

  77. CelebRetard Hypocrite says – reply to this


    77

    Last time I checked all of these "designer breeds" or so called "hybrids" are jsut your every day mutt. A Labradoodle isn't a breed, it is a mutt. Nothing wrong with that, I have a mutt myself. I jsut don't know why people think they need to go into a store or go to a breeder. There are many of these mixed breed dogs as well as full breed dogs that are deserving of homes.

    Are you part of the problem, or part of the solution?

    While it is a worthy cause, actions speak louder than words. I hope next time that both you Perez or any of your readers are looking for a pet to add to their family they will look at a rescue or a shelter.

    Re: Puzzled – No, because Perez is contributing to the millers. Money in their pocket only encourages them to mass produce more. Yes, it's hard to pass that cute puppy at the pet store, but in order to close puppymills you must boycott and not support them.

    Ummmm….Perez, your dog is likely the result of a puppy mill!!! Aside from that, the HSUS is a political organization. They do not help actual dogs. If you want to "do it for the doggies" you are much better off donating to your local animal shelter or other organizations that actually do help dogs.

    Please Perez, do some research before you post these things!

  83. Sarah says – reply to this


    83

    Perez, I need to echo the sentiment that it is more than a little ironic that YOU, the owner of a designer dog that cost no less than a couple thousand dollars, would be speaking out against puppy mills. I don't care how "reputable" or "responsible" Teddy's breeder was, it is simple arithmetic. The number of dogs out there far exceeds the number of homes, and the best way to combat cruelty against ALL animals is to adopt those animals in shelters and rescues. I have no doubt that you love animals and that Teddy is a wonderful pet, but pleases consider adopting. You certainly have what it takes both in terms of resources and goodness in your heart. And isn't it time for Teddy to have a friend? Oh, I think so.

    Re: ey – Wayne Pacelle Head of the HSUS wrote "we have no problems with the extinction of domestic animals. They are creations of human selective breeding…I don't want to see another dog or cat born."
    DO NOT SUPPORT THE HSUS WITH DONATIONS. Go to your local shelter instead if you want to help.
    HSUS Agenda - No more companion animals in 20 years.

    Re: rachel – Caring ethical breeders are not the problem - they are the reason that different breeds continue to exist. They are the reason you can get a lab or a yorkie or a beagle if you want one. Puppy Mills raise dogs in disgusting cruel conditions - Ethical breeders do not. HSUS wants to eliminate ALL companion animals.

    Thanks for posting this Perez. As previous people mentioned, Teddy probably was a puppy mill product, but what's done is done. I hope you don't support that in the future.

    And, for anyone wondering, NO, it isn't okay to save a puppy from those conditions. You've got to see the bigger picture. For every puppy sold, that's another puppy the 'breeders' have to replace it with. If their puppies stop getting purchased, puppy mill operators will stop having litters. Support adoption from a rescue or shelter (www.petfinder.com), or at the very least, go through a reputable breeder, which you can find from any breed's national club website. Just search for "golden retriever club of america" (or any other breed), to find a list of quality breeders.

    Please DO NOT support the HSUS. They do absolutely nothing to actually help animals. They are over-the-top animal rights fanatics and do not want anyone to own pets PERIOD!
    If you truly want to help stop puppy mills, do not buy puppies from pet stores. Adopt pets from local shelters or (if you must) buy from a responsible breeder.

    thanks perez - i really appreciate that you put your name to such great causes - and even if teddy is from a puppy mill - everyone makes their mistakes and it just shows how so many arent aware of how the pet business works. you're the best!

    I bought a puppy at the mall. At the time I didn't know there was anything wrong with getting a dog at the store. I got a little wiener dog, and he was so cute. But as soon as I found out that he came from a puppy mill and all the bad things they do, I felt really bad, and I didn't want to keep supporting them. So I killed my puppy and went to the pound and got a new one. I feel a lot better now that I made things right.

    Considering myself a fairly intelligent and compassionate person, I was shocked at how stupid I really was. I bought a puppy from a certain ’centre canin,’ or in other words a pet store, and I did not think to ask: Where did this puppy came from? Who was her mother, her father? How long she had been in that cage? How many hours does she get to play or is she in that tiny cage all day?Is this place air conditioned… (I mean it was a hot, humid July day)?That was not what I was thinking, what I was thinking was simply… ‘aww what a cute puppy.’ And thats exactly what pet stores want you to think.
    But hidden beneath those sweet puppy dog eyes, is the pain and suffering of thousands of dogs who often will never see the light of day, never eat anything but the poorest grade dog food (some found to contain floor sweepings), live their entire lives in tiny wired cages in sweltering heat and bitter cold, die and suffer from disease without veterinary care, and live in the constant stench of excrement. While you may think you are saving this puppy from a pet store, what you are is creating a cage to fill with another puppy from a puppy mill.
    I dont think we should be assigning blame to anyone, because the truth is that people simply dont know how the pet business works, people let their love for the sweet puppy in the window blind them. The point is to boycott pet stores in general, because they ALL get their puppies from mills.

    Re: dee – I can appreciate your thoughts, but all breeders need to be regulated. That is the truth. There are too many of them. And again, if people need to have a certain breed, there is always some loser who abandoned that breed at a shelter. So therefore, forget breeders until all of the shelter pets are adopted.

    a good thing to remember is for every dog bought, one will die in a shelter somewhere.
    ps. leave perez alone about teddy - everybody makes mistakes, but now that he knows and is good enough to post this, next time he'll go to a shelter - perez, continue loving teddy to death but def. get him neutered!

    I hate the way people these days whine about animal rights when there's human beings dying of war starvation and disease……not to mention the unborn babies who get killed by their slutty whore mothers every day. Shame on society for fucking up its priorities!

    marty,
    Just because some people care about animals, doesn't mean that we don't care about people, war, etc. Grow a brain please!

    Re: msp – I'm not saying all animals should be lined up and shot……….I do think traditional animal rights is admirable….but these days it's turned extremist and downright nasty………and it's seen as a cuter and more glamorous cause than humanitarian issues……..when u die God won't care how many cows lives u saved by being vegetarian or how many minks u saved by not wearing fur…….he'll wanna know what u did for your fellow human beings…..society's so fucked up these days
