32 dogs used as business tools

Have you seen ARK News & Events "Big rescue, please help us find these little dogs a happy home"?

This is the truth that lies behind the image of the cute puppies you see lined up at pet shops. And this case is not unusual.
If I were a breeder, there’s no way I would be able to sell my puppies from a glass case, each by itself, to a complete stranger, often on credit and having torn the pups away from their mother and siblings. The only people who can do that are those who think of dogs as nothing but a source of money. If I were them, I would want to give my puppies to someone reliable who would keep them responsibly until the end of their life. These puppies would be like my own children or grandchildren, and I would want to keep in touch with their new family to get updates about the dogs and give advice if it were needed.

The people who think of dogs simply as money-making tools don’t consider the kind of conditions in this picture to be cruel. ”How can we make the greatest profit with the least expenditure?” That’s all they think about.

Such people don’t give their dogs the vaccinations they need, and when the mother gives birth, the puppies are taken away immediately in order to make her go into heat again, thus creating more puppies as efficiently as possible. And all of this happens in the confines of tiny cages. The dog is seen just as a puppy machine (in other words, a money machine).

If the puppies born into this kind of environment were mentally and physically healthy or didn’t have contagious diseases, allergies or birth defects, I wouldn’t be able to call it anything less than a miracle. How many pups have been sacrificed to make marketable puppies?
Most of the puppies you see in pet shops are born in this kind of place and treated as “freight”. If this became common knowledge, who would want to buy a puppy from a pet shop? There is a supply because there is a demand. Ignorance is a crime.

Even the pedigree papers are commonly faked. At these shops, there is no such thing as the truth.

When we trimmed this little guy, he turned out to be absolutely beautiful. He seems a bit scared, but from now on, he’s probably going to start understanding that not all human are bad.

Luckily, every one of the 32 dogs that we rescued this time are very good boys and girls. They all were well behaved while they were being trimmed. It must have been painful for them when matted hairballs that had been stuck to their skin for a long time were finally removed, but they were all calm and patient.

This dog looked like an old, used old mop in a strange orange color…

She was actually this cute little white thing!

Hairballs that are matted with dirt really stink and can’t be gotten rid of with a one-off shampoo. We helped them to shed their past along with their dirty fur when we gave them a shampoo and cut. Each of these dogs is preparing to start a new life. Please become an adopter of these born-again dogs, and show them the joy of being loved!
