Breeders kill shelter animals!

I somehow found my way to this site,, and found nearly 6000 ads for puppies. There are 6000 ads trying to sell litters of puppies. So, just say there are 5 to a litter...thats 30,000 lives created to make money. On, there are over 20,000 ads! On, they have nearly 2,000 ads, some advertising one puppy others advertising entire litters.

Doing a google search for "puppies for sale", I get
3,230,000 results.
For kittens, I get just
659,00 results.

This is very irresponsible considering the amount of animals that are euthanized each year. I do not buy the argument that people are trying to save a breed. According to the Humane Society of the United States,
purebreds account for about 25 to 30 percent of a shelter's dog population. Animal shelters care for between 6–8 million dogs and cats every year in the United States, of whom approximately 3–4 million are euthanized. If we use the highest estimated numbers (30% of 8 million) possible we come up with 2.4 million purebred animals in shelters nationwide. There is no reason to "keep the breed(s) alive", it is alive and well.

I do not see how breeders can defend their actions. Even if the breeders are giving the cats and dogs a good life, they still created a life that takes a home away from a shelter animal. How can they call themselves animal lovers if they are deliberately creating a new life in an already overwhelming population of cats and dogs who are euthanized every single day?


I think breeders do it for the money. I saw a Yorkie online going for $3,000! That is outrageous!

The site that I linked to above has this on their site:
A replacement puppy (male or female of your choice) will be given at no charge, once the original puppy is returned to us at buyer's expense. The puppy must not be spayed or neutered.
They don't spay or neuter their puppies they adopt out?!

It is a tragedy that this is happening. Maybe if there weren't breeders and puppy mills out there, the innocent cats and dogs that were killed today might still be here. Because of human action, those cats and dogs are in dumpsters. Shame on you-irresponsible breeders!!

Your actions are helping to kill cats and dogs all over the country!
