Puppy Town sells dogs from puppy mills - commercial breeding facilities that mass-produce puppies for resale through pet shops and brokers. USDA licensed facilities are puppy mills.
Puppy Town is linked to several breeders with multiple violations and one unlicensed online seller – which by law cannot sell to pets shops without a USDA license. The pet shop frequently buys from puppy mills from states like Iowa, Missouri and Georgia.
