Canine Trafficking – Hillsborough County taking action

It is the canine version of human trafficking.

All across the United States, there are those who breed dogs in horrible conditions shipping them to “puppy stores” who make massive profits from selling these often genetically defective animals to unsuspecting customers for excessive prices.
When we, as consumers, buy these puppies, we immediately begin to love and care for them. Often times what starts out as pure love and joy turns into tragedy.
There are two victims here, the puppy and you the buyer.
Click these links and follow the story of my puppy-dog store puppy - Max.
Check out these stories from the Tampa Bay Times:
County Commissioner Ken Hagan said, “Breeders who all too often turned a blind eye to abhorrent practices.”
Listening to the comments from County Commission meetings shown on news clips from the puppy stores owners brought my blood to near boiling level.
They are without any doubt only interested in making a buck. All the talk about loving dogs is mostly bullshit. It's all about the money - buying cheap and selling high.
If you cannot make a living in the pet business without resorting to selling puppy mill victims in my view, they should be put out of business.
Someone pleading their case to sell the often victims on animal cruelty simply tells you all you need to know. Don’t shop there!
Why not go to reputable local or regional breeders for puppies? Simple there is more profit to be made selling puppy mill puppies.
Franchised puppy stores support the puppy mill business, and the product should always be suspect.
Never believe the claims or the certificates or the warrantees or the smiling face trying to get the sale.
