Hundreds of thousands of breeding dogs live in small wire cages in puppy mills for the sole purpose of producing puppies to be sold in pet stores and online. These dogs suffer neglect and abuse and are typically killed when they can no longer provide a profit, usually at 5-6 years old.
Harley is a puppy mill survivor who lost his eye when his cage was cleaned with a power washer. After being rescued he found a loving home and is now a spokes-dog against puppy mills. His campaign, “Harley to the Rescue” has save more than 500 dogs from mills and raised more than $500,000 for National Mill Dog Rescue. His efforts to spread awareness about puppy mills earned him the American Humane Association’s top honor of American Hero Dog. They are now working together to put an end to the cruel commercial dog breeding industry.
