To the editor of THE EAGLE:
I would like to tell you about the puppy mills that we learned about at the Berkshire Humane Society camp. We were taught that the puppies don’t have enough room to play. They are raised so poorly. The cages are dirty, too.
We don’t like how the puppies there are being treated. Puppies from puppy mills are being shipped to pet shops.
We are encouraging people to do something just as we are. We would like to ask you not to buy dogs from a pet shop. You should also support the Pups Act bills, S.395 and H.R. 847.
Puppy mills are commercial dog-breeding facilities. This is one of the 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 in grades three through eight who care about animals.
