Help us stop the cruelty of puppy mills in Alabama!
Atti was discovered in a pet store in Dothan, Alabama. She and her sister came from a breeder in Troy, Alabama and both were covered in feces and obviously sick. They had parasites throughout their bodies and Parvo. Her rescue angels, Christine and Ben Irwin, purchased both puppies to get them the veterinary attention they so desparately needed. Little Atti succumbed to the Parvo virus after battling hard for several days. Our Bill has been renamed in her honor.
No caring person would intentionally support animal cruelty. But many consumers that purchase a dog online, at a pet store, through classifieds, or even from someone they believe to be a “reputable” breeder may very well be supporting and perpetuating a horrible cycle of animal cruelty.
Now you can do something about it.

What is a Puppy Mill?
A puppy mill is commercial dog breeding facility that cares little for the physical and emotional health of its breeding dogs.
Because maintaining a high standard of veterinary care and ensuring animals have adequate space and socialization costs too much money and these places care about one thing and one thing only – profits.
