What is the insentive to import puppies from other countries?
Well, frankly, I think if the over-population problems in shelters went away, a lot of people would be out of work. No, not the minimum wage or volunteer shelter workers. No, the lawyers, and lobbyists and the whole HSUS structure from the very top all the way down. It is huge business. They NEED dogs in shelters, they NEED puppy mills, they NEED all those nasty photographs from puppy mills or Katrina and even dog-fighting to separate money from good-hearted individuals.
It makes sense for them to import puppies from outside the US. Nobody talks about it much. But full and over-flowing shelters help their agenda. It keeps them pulling in donations, which pays the bills and the salaries.
