You walk past a pet store in the mall and there's an adorable puppy inside. You first think about how stinkin' cute the pooch is, but Heather Morris -- who plays ditzy cheerleader Brittany on Glee -- wants you to be aware of the sad background the young dog has already endured.
Puppy mills' main focus is breeding as many dogs as possible for profit. As you can imagine, many of the animals are forced to spend their whole lives in cramped and unsanitary cages. The saddest part is that these puppy factories are actually legal.
That's why the Humane Society of the United States is asking the public for their support in ending such horrid conditions for these dogs. Puppy mills make most of their profits from selling animals to pet shops and Internet site. To take action, Heather signed the Human Society's Stop Puppy Mills Pledge.

The pledge reads: I will do my part to help stop puppy mills. I pledge to help end this cycle of cruelty by: Choosing not to buy my next pet from a pet store or Internet site. Refusing to buy supplies from any pet store or Internet site that sells puppies.
Should these puppy mills become illegal?
