COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH)– Nine of 100 problematic puppy mills as categorized by the Humane Society of the United States are in Ohio.
HSUS has released their annual “Horrible Hundred” report, and Ohio only has less locations on the list than Missouri, which has 30.
“The 2020 Horrible Hundred is a list of problem puppy breeders and sellers in the United States, published annually to warn consumers about common problems at puppy mills” HSUS says.
Documented problems include sick, underweight or injured dogs; unsanitary conditions that spread disease; inadequate food or water; and a lack or proper shelter from the heat and cold.HSUS “The Horrible Hundred 2020”
