happy dog


The Humane Society of the United States encourages adoption from a shelter or rescue group. However, we recognize that some people prefer to purchase a dog.

If you do choose to purchase a dog from a breeder, we want to make sure that you go to a responsible breeder instead of a puppy mill. Our guide will help you choose a responsible breeder. If you are in doubt as you make your decision, our network of responsible breeders can clarify issues for you.

Just fill out this form and a responsible breeder will answer your question as soon as possible. Please make certain that you enter your email address correctly.
