Mill Dog Manifesto: Help is on the way!

Puppy Mill informationMaybe you’ve heard the term “puppy mill” but you’re not really sure what it is. Or maybe you’ve adopted an ex-puppy mill breeding dog and are struggling to get to know him/her. Either way, the “Mill Dog Manifesto” will open your eyes and your heart to the plight of dogs who have fallen victim to human greed. This eBook is available for you to download FREE! Please read it, reread it, and share it with your friends.


From The Savannah Pets Examiner’s Pet Pages: “This is a FREE e-book on puppy mill dogs. What they are, what they go through, what to expect if you adopt one and just how to be a better pet parent with this knowledge. I have personally read this book and found it very interesting and very easy to read. Other things I have read give a lot of technical terms, and information that really is not relavant to the common person, this book does not do that. It is as if Kyla is talking to you and explaining to you from the heart and providing you with her personal experiences with her puppy mill dog. It really is a great book to read and share. I hope you enjoy it.” -Dena Stapleton

“I really like the eBook. It is full of great information in one place. Sadly it details puppy mills, but education is so important in stopping the cycle.” -Jan, Love a Golden Rescue

“I love the unique, very personal voice in which the Mill Dog Manifesto is written. It immediately engages the reader. The facts about puppy mills and the dog breeding industry are tough to digest but obviously it’s necessary to share them.” -Michele Wallach, Dog Lover and Professional Writer

    As the owner of a puppy mill breeding dog, I am so grateful for you sharing this information and book!

    I wish more people knew what kind of conditions these dogs face in a puppy mill. One pet store owner told me that a facility in Southern MN “wasn’t a puppy mill” because it was clean. What? Seriously? The place has 491 breeding pairs, numerous USDA violations and brokers dogs for backyard breeders with numerous violations. Just because a facility is “clean” doesn’t mean it is not a puppy mill.
    Thank you for educating people on what they are and how they can avoid getting a dog from one. And, thank you for providing a resource for those of us who adopt puppy mill dogs. It is a missing piece that is very much needed.

    We adopted a puppy mill rescue about 7 months ago and I can’t tell you how much joy that she has brought to our lives. She is very smart and has overcome a lot in the past few months with the help of our other rescue dog. When she arrived she was in terrible shape, and I was uncertain that I could help her. Thankfully, I can see her happiness now and that is a priceless reward!

  4. I love this site!! My husband came home last night because he had heard it on the radio and knew I would. I am with Colorado Citizens for Canine Welfare and we work against puppymills, pet stores and internet sales of puppies. We are fairly new and have just applied for our c3 standing. While we are not hands on rescues we work to educate the public and legislators about mills, support ethical reputable breeding practices and keep an eye on PACFA while bringing other animal organizations together. We are building a new website but please visit us now at and check us out. Join us and lets all fight mills!!

    I found this book to be very informative! I learned more about the puppy mills themselves and the training tips were very helpful. Thanks again. Sincerely, Mary Wadsworth
