Stop Online Puppy Mills NFP is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization dedicated to ending puppy mills through educating consumers.
Since August 2014, Stop Online Puppy Mills has been educating consumers about the cruelty of puppy mills. Our digital media campaigns, search and retargeting advertisements and social media platforms interrupt new puppy buyers, educating them before they buy, so they can make better choices.
Puppy mills are high volume dog breeders who sell puppies for profit. Any dog breeder can be a puppy mill. The breeding dogs, the dogs that are caged for life breeding, the dogs making the puppies, live in inhumane conditions. Puppy buyers don’t think about the parent dogs that are forced to breed and make puppies over and over again.
The internet is a 24/7 unmonitored marketplace and online puppy sales are skyrocketing. There are an estimated 10,000 puppy mills in the U.S. producing a shocking estimate of 2.4 million puppies a year. It is hard for consumers to associate the reality of what goes on through these high-volume breeders.
They conceal their kennel operations from public view and the buyer is insulated from the truth.
So, we ask you – please make a difference
Become an educated buyer for your family’s sake and for the sake of the parent dogs left behind.
You can make the difference.
Make the right choice.
Please – Make the difference.
