Puppy mills are absolutely horrid, unforgivable and heinous…there's no ifs, ands, or buts about that.

The advances in technology have created online puppy mills, where commercial breeders can sell innocent puppies for profit, without caring for their welfare.

In a study done by 16 volunteers as well as investigators for nonprofit organization, International Fund for Animal Welfare, the team found nearly 750K ads DAILY on puppy buying websites as well as sites like Craigslist, eBay classifieds, and more.

Of these ads, 62 percent of puppy websites had dogs coming from mills.

The biggest culprit was Animaroo, where 85 percent of their puppies appeared to have mills written all over them.

Some factors that can contribute to puppy mill ad include a refusal to meet at the kennel, artificial and multple ads, slogans, lack of refund or return policies and much MUCH more.

IFAW hopes to urge websites to refrain from posting puppy mill ads and persuade the USDA to put into action the online puppy mill sales regulation it proposed in May.

There are over 78 million dogs in homes this year and their popularity continues to grow.

Here's hoping online puppy mills won't be contributing to the shelter population…
