Puppy mills are root of problem
TO THE EDITORS:
Is there an alien website asking us to kill God's creatures? Who can kill those precious, lovable, innocent, sweet, darling pets?
If this website knows about the Lancaster County travesty, why didn't it appear years ago and try to help ban puppy mill breeders?
Townships and municipalities are now trying to clean their own backyards. Many spay-and-neuter programs are available.
As for cheating, no bigger cheater exists than the breeder who sneaks his dogs down the road to the little white house -- with no barn -- and tries to fool the buyer into believing this is a family dog.
It all starts with allowing puppy mills.
