Hi! What do you think of rescues who operate similarly to puppy mills regarding lots of dogs in crates waiting for homes who may not be getting optimum care? I agree that puppy mills are a problem, but I have also covered stories myself on shelters who have been in similar conditions, and they are more common than puppy mills in many places and aren't regulated by the FDA because so many people are pushed to rescue.

You may be interested in the Ingham county Michigan shelter implosion which happened during a summer where a huge dog fighting bust dumped many fighting bred pit bulls into the Ingham shelter, and due to the lack of basic care many of them suffered and died.

In fact, the entire shelter staff was fired and replaced after the incident.
