    The Definition of a Puppy Mill

    A Puppy Mill is a substandard breeding establishment that places profit above the welfare of its animals. A Puppy Mill is not only inhumane and cruel, but also typically operated without any governmental oversight.

    PuppySpot Guarantees Its Breeders Are NOT Puppy Mills

    Buy confidently from PuppySpot knowing:

    • USDA Licensed - Not only is PuppySpot licensed by the USDA (cert. # 58-B-0618), but we require every one of our breeders to be either licensed, or exempt from licensing by the USDA.

    • Proprietary Screening - Above and beyond USDA requirements, PuppySpot mandates a comprehensive, proprietary screening process that all breeders must pass. For that very reason, we accept fewer than 15% of all potential breeder applicants.

    • Regular Check-ins - PuppySpot stays in regular contact with our breeders, monitoring the health of every single puppy throughout the process, culminating with a comprehensive nose-to-tail medical examination by a licensed veterinarian prior to the puppy traveling. We work diligently with the goal of placing healthy puppies into happy homes. To that end, PuppySpot offers a health guarantee with every single puppy we place. We also stay in touch with our customers after the puppy arrives home to make sure the transition goes well.
