Mabel the Rescue Dog

Encourage Dog Lovers to Adopt 💕

Sadly, I’ve heard humans give plenty of excuses when they buy a puppy from a pet store. In reality, there should never be any excuses, but the one that drives Molly crazy is when people say, “if pet store puppies are from puppy mills, then buying them is like rescuing them.” But this is an outrageous conclusion that needs to be stopped. So, here is why rescuing a puppy mill dog and buying a pet store puppy are NOT the same thing at all. (Click title to read more!)

It will take all dogs time to adjust to their new surroundings. However, puppy mill survivors often take much more time than other rescue dogs. They’ve had a rough past, but they can eventually learn what love is again. With a dog rescued from a puppy mill, you need to learn to be extra patient and kind. (Click title to read more!)

Imagine adding an adorable puppy into your family. Even after only a short time together, you quickly bond. But then, imagine finding out that your puppy doesn’t officially belong to you, but instead, you had been tricked into leasing them. This might sound outrageous, but the concept of pet leasing is a real thing, and it’s not okay. (Click title to read more!)

I am happy to announce that the USDA has finally made some changes to their requirements! Sadly, even puppy mill breeders can have a USDA license because the restrictions are not very detailed and they are rarely enforced. Hopefully, these new rules can change that and help save more dogs. (Click title to read more!)

As many of you know, puppy mills are the one topic Molly and I feel most strongly about. If someone does decide to breed a dog (even though they should adopt instead), we would much, much rather see them go to a responsible breeder instead of supporting a puppy mill. However, sometimes it can be difficult to distinguish the two if you’re not careful. (Click title to read more!)

Whenever someone asks Molly where she got me or how long she’s had me, she always makes a point to say that she adopted me. She wants the world to know that even high demand breeds like me can be a rescue and that adopting is so important. However, we’ve noticed that some people use the word “adopt” even when they didn’t adopt their dog. (Click title to read more!)

mans have a difficult time resisting the cute face of a puppy. This is why so many people walk past pet stores and stop to look at all the cute puppies for sale. Looking at puppies for sale might seem like a fun, heartwarming way to spend your time, but there is actually a dark secret behind nearly every pet store. Therefore, you should never even consider a pet store as a location to purchase a new dog. (Click title to read more!)
