To the editor of THE EAGLE:
We learned about puppies at Camp Humane. At puppy mills, puppies don’t get enough food and water. They don’t have enough room to run around and play. People don’t clean the cages.
We want the people to take better care of the puppies. We want people to please support the Pups Act, which would improve conditions at puppy mills.
Puppy mills are commercial dog-breeding facilities. This is one of several letters written by the fifth-grade session of Camp Humane at the Berkshire Humane Society in Pittsfield. The camp is a specialized summer camp for kids who care about animals. Programs are offered from third to eighth grade and there is a scholarship program for underprivileged families.
