Animal Planet’s Petland

An investigative special exploring the connections between puppy mills and pet stores airs on Animal Planet.

On Monday, Animal Planet Investigates: Petland, the second installment in the network's new series of investigative programming, exposed the cruel connections between puppy mills and pet stores. In 2008, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) released a series of investigations into national pet store chain Petland, which was suspected of buying animals from puppy mills. The one-hour special follows an animal cruelty investigator from HSUS as he goes undercover to reveal how animals are mistreated at dozens of puppy mills suspected of working with Petland. Routine animal welfare abuses at puppy mills include animals confined to cages, malnutrition, sickness, and death.
