Missouri Puppy Mills

I currently live in Missouri which is known as the Puppy Mill Capitol. Its estimated that over 200,000 dogs live, in conditions like I described above, in my state. On this page I plan to gather handy links to my previous (and future) blog posts about Missouri Puppy Mills. Topics include: MO Prop B, puppy mill rescues, USDA and HSUS reports, and more.
Why am I doing this? Because I want you to be aware of the ugly truths about puppy mills and join the movement to stop them.
As an introduction, fetch one of our Dog Song Saturday blog posts: The Puppy Mill Song - A State of Misery.
