According to the Humane Society, 500,000 dogs are kept in cruel conditions in dog breeding facilities across the nation. These places are typically full and unsafe. The recent ruling brings us one step closer to putting an end to puppy mills. CBS spoke with Karen Froehlich, an employee of the SPCA of Texas.

The local humane pet stores in Dallas don’t sell puppies. Instead, adopt out puppies in need of loving homes will benefit from this ordinance, the woman claimed.
