There are a lot of puppy mills were all puppies suffer, they are hungry, they are dieng, and they are waiting for someone to save them. A lot of puppies are dying while you read this, only because there is no money in the puppy mills. No animal should suffer, this must change.

I want to put this out there that I love dogs, but I also love reasonable business regulations that don't destroy businesses especially when no human is harmed. I think we all can agree that the stereotypical puppy mill is awful. Dogs climbing on top of each other, little food, little water, but here's the thing. Animal Neglect is already illegal, and if the dogs are not being neglected I really couldn't care less. There is no sense in banning commercial dog farming even if the dogs aren't living as comfortable lives as say an already adopted dog would be living. It is not economically viable to treat every dog the same way they would be treated as if they lived in a home, and I don't think its morally needed anyways. That's why they are in a "puppy mill" to be adopted and to go new homes. Does commercial breeding tend to be abused, of course, but we shouldn't ban a whole industry over the misconduct of a few.

i disagree, they need severe reform rather than an outright ban
