Our Mission & Goals

No more puppy mills!  NPMP's mission is to end commercial puppy-breeding (puppy mills) and the inhumane treatment of dogs used as breeding stock.

Our mission will be accomplished by:

  • Empowering independent, grassroots animal welfare organizations and advocates across the nation. By connecting, informing, inspiring and sharing¬†promising practices, intellectual capital and expertise, we can enable each to make a distinctive impact in their respective communities and states.
  • Raising public awareness and educating consumers about puppy mill cruelty and the consequences of buying puppies from pet stores, websites and classified ads.
  • Advocating for the end of commercial puppy breeding by uniting and mobilizing our members and their many supporters as a powerful national voice.
  • Working collaboratively with other animal welfare organizations working on ending puppy mill cruelty.

Over the next three years, our goals are to:

  • Build a strong national coalition with members representing every state, empower members to make a distinctive impact in their respective states and, collectively, make an impact at the national level.
  • Make the cause accessible to more people and help them better understand its connection to them, so informed consumers no longer buy puppy mill puppies nor support businesses that do.
  • Reach beyond our core group of true believers to mobilize millions of animal lovers as a powerful national voice, so puppies are no longer bred commercially or regulated as agriculture.
