Our Mission

Our affinity group’s mission is to spread information about the cruel and inhumane business of puppy mills to Bucknell’s campus.

Puppy mills are defined by the ASPCA to be any:

…large-scale commercial dog breeding operation that places profit over the well-being of its dogs—who are often severely neglected—and acts without regard to responsible breeding practices.”

Our group focused on puppy mills as both a national and local issue, using resources from both large-scale organizations and local animal shelters.

By presenting a documentary about the treatment of dogs in puppy mills, providing students with information on the issue, and encouraging students to sign the pledge against puppy mills, we hope to inform and impassion Bucknell students about this horribly unjust practice.
