Puppy mills are a huge problem in Pennsylvania. According to United Against Puppy Mills, “Puppy mills are commercial enterprises which breed dogs in significant numbers for profit. Recent Pennsylvania statistics revealed 1,667 licensed commercial kennels with 156,534 kept dogs. Of these kennels, 254 were K-5 licensed to have greater than 251 breeding dogs each.”

In June police raided a puppy mill in Allentown, PA and with the help of the Humane Society of the United States, eighteen dogs were brought to the Maryland SPCA on Fall Road.
