You cannot afford to be ignorant

My momma asked me if she could post today. I said OK only because after reading the post I put up yesterday, she has been raging and ranting. I know she sounds really harsh, but... there is truth behind her rage. Puppy mills are an atrocity that cannot continue... So, if you don't know anything about puppy mills, read up, here are some links:

National Animal Cruelty Registry

Prisoners of Greed

Amish puppy Milling

And now... momma's rant:

Puppy millers, merchants of pain, greeders [yes you breeders who breed for greed] we, as a society can no longer afford to pay for your sins. We have witnessed your abuse, your inhumanity and your greed. You have tortured, you have neglected, you have practiced prostitution on the lowest level it can be practiced. Yes, you are a dog pimp.You have victimized the most innocent of all victims, a defenseless animal. So how small are your attributes that you need to do this to feel like a big man?

And don't lie to yourself. You have also victimized the ignorant human who bought that puppy you "mass produced" without any thought to genetics, diseases, etc. You victimized that ignorant human financially, emotionally and you made him/her your accomplice, your co-conspirator. You robbed them of their humanity. You are the ultimate rapist.

You call yourself a "legitimate" business. Your only goal is PROFIT. BUT you do need to know... NOTHING, absolutely nothing will ever legitimize what you do or wash away the stench of puppy milling/puppy killing. You will spend the rest of your miserable life chasing peace of mind and joy. Both will elude you like air eludes an asthmatic. Almost there, but never quite enough. You can change your name, you can change state, but you are a puppy miller/puppy killer.

If I sound angry or extreme, you made me this way. Every rescue story begins and ends with someone like you. I am part of the clean up crew. That overlooked group of people who nurture, save, salvage, heal, beg, borrow and sacrifice to restore the dogs you have abused. I witnessed the suffering you caused first hand. My anger is legitimate, my intolerance is well founded and my frustration is real.

If you had any self respect or any belief in yourself as a human being, you would be finding another way to earn a living, you would be making amends. I am just going to work harder, longer and be more vocal and I will keep trying to put you out of business. I am NOT GOING AWAY. And I am not alone.

Tell me, when you are alone and you look in the mirror, does the murderer that stares back scare you? It should. He is with you 24/7/365. You are the puppy miller/puppy killer....
