Inhumane ‘puppy mills’ come under increasing state, local enforcement

MSNBC.com has a detailed article regarding the fight against puppy mills. It includes the description of a raid on a Virginia puppy mill where some of the seized animals were taken in by a Florida shelter. The Virginia operation...
was “basically a factory farm where female dogs are constantly bred over and over again in often unsanitary conditions, and then the puppies are taken away from their moms and sent to pet stores all over the United States,” said Cherie Wachter of the Broward County, Fla., Humane Society, which took in about 100 of the dogs.
