The Humane Society of the United States just released its 10th annual Horrible Hundred report on problem puppy mills and once again Pennsylvania has a number on the list including one right here in Newville, (pages 66-70). The Newville facility is in the annual report for the fifth year. Issues found at Pennsylvania puppy mills include sick and injured dogs, filthy conditions and dogs confined to small, rusty and broken cages. What’s worse is that, in addition to the five Pennsylvania puppy mills on the list, our state’s retail pet stores are importing dogs from Horrible Hundred puppy mills in many other states. Pennsylvania must stop producing and importing puppy mill dogs for retail sale in pet stores when we already have enough puppy mill problems- and homeless dogs needing adoption- in our own state.
