There are 4,000,000 puppies bred in puppy mills each year!
I really tried to get my head around exactly what four million puppies would look like.
These 4 million puppies wind up in pet stores, with brokers, online and being bred over and over again. Here’s what I found:
-The population for Puerto Rico, Kentucky and Oregon combined was approximately 4 million in 2009
-The population of Manhattan, Staten Island and the Bronx is approximately 4 million (have you ever been in NYC w/all the people?)
-The amount of money Tiger Woods would make if he won the grand slam. This of course does not include sponsorships
-The amount of money Kobe Bryant spent on Vanessa’s 8-Carat Purple Diamond ring post Colorado romp
-The number of online shoppers per minute on Cyber Monday 2009
-The number of followers Ashton Kutcher has on twitter
-The number of snuggies sold since their invention (even before the leopard and zebra ones)
-The number of “junk, solicitation” phone calls made each day in the USA
-4 million pennies would be 9.2 tons or what 18,600 pounds!
-The amount of fans in the Big House (U of M) on any given game day times x 40
