Rewards Offered in Effort to Shut Down "Puppy Mills"

The Humane Society of the U.S. is targeting Kansas with a program aimed at shutting down unlicensed dog breeders. The organization is urging people to be on the lookout for so-called “puppy mills.” The initiative offers rewards for tips leading to the conviction of people who treat dogs inhumanely. Midge Grinstead is the state director for the Humane Society of the United States. She says Kansans should be especially wary of puppies being sold online or sellers who won’t show the breeding facility.

The number for reporting suspected puppy mills is 1-877-MILL-TIP. Grinstead says Kansas is one of the nation's top producers of puppies for commercial sale.
