There is a way to fix this inhumane system--adoption instead of purchase. Shelters have a wide variety of dogs available for adoption. Up to 50% of these shelter dogs are purebred. The dogs in shelters need loving homes. If people start adopting instead of purchasing, the demand for puppy mills will disappear.
Today Nugget visited the GTU studio. Nugget is an 8 years old purebred Beagle who is kind, loving, and mellow. He has a little weight to lose and is eager to find a loving family. If you are interested in adopting Nugget or a dog like him visit Salt Lake County Animal Services.
