Outlet Prices??? How sad!

I think it was on that "huge" thread where it was mentioned that Lancaster County PA has a lot of puppymills. Well, on our recent trip through the city of Lancaster, I spotted this sign and thought I'd share. Sorry the quality isn't very good, we were driving and I took it looking through the windshield.

Leslie,
That is even more horrible than you described it. I was thinking it would be a hand painted sign but a professional one at that! Yikes and lets each do our part to educate those near us!

What is even more sad is that the sign says it's the Humane League of Lancaster County! How humane can outlet prices for designer breeds be? Things like that just sicken me.

It's a real problem. I live an hour from Lancaster. They just had puppymill awareness day last month. I couldn't make it, but was there last year.

My husband and I went to a puppymill and snuck back to see the dogs. There were cages stacked on top of each other. The dogs were packed in cages and there was no shelter from the rain, snow, heat, or cold. . It broke my heart and yes, they were havanese.

If you google "humane league of Lancaster County" their website comes up. This place is about rescue and education. I don't think their slogan was very clever though, it makes me think that this place is a puppy mill, but in reality it's a rescue organization, hummm.

It was probabaly supposed to be witty and a comment on the fact that designer breeds are really just mutts and that you can get a mutt through rescue far cheaper than from pet store or puppy mill. But it is confusing!

Oh that is so sad, I am hoping to stop in Lancaster on our road trip next June I may just have to come up with a puppy rescue mission while I am there.
I was planning this trip hoping to visit some Amish communities. I have always had a fondness for Shakers and decided it would be fun to learn about the Amish. I am beginning to wonder if I still really want to know anything after hearing so much about the Amish and puppy mills.
