Celebrity Puppy Mills in Bel Air

The Humane Society of the United States has just finished a three month investigation of a top Los Angeles pet store that caters to celebrities like Paris Hilton.

The Pets of Bel Air pet store in California boasts a high profile clientele but the pets in the store, like a lot of other commercial pet ventures, are stocked with pets that were warehoused and raised in horrid conditions.

The Humane Society of the United States undercover investigation found Pets of Bel Air obtains their animals from 28 puppy mills throughout the Midwest.

Puppy mills are big business: two to four million puppies from 10,000 puppy mills are sold annually, which adds up to a heartbreaking bottom line for any animal lover.

My blood boils and yet, what can one do, but at least make sure people know.

There are many more details over at CBS Showbuzz
