The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and former bachelor star Lorenzo Borghese teamed up to show New Yorkers why buying a dog at the local pet shop is a bad move for both people and pups.

An investigator from the powerhouse animal protection organization and Borghese went undercover in 11 pet shops in the New York City area posing as “shoppers.” Their findings told the grim tale behind the cute facade.

HSUS reported that, “All 11 stores videotaped by HSUS investigators purchased their puppies from large-scale commercial breeding facilities, despite specific claims of ‘no puppy mills’ or misleading statements implying that their sources were small ‘private breeders.’ When HSUS investigators filmed some of these breeding facilities they found hundreds of dogs confined to small cages.”

The organization didn’t stop there. They also looked at the records of over 100 pet shops in New York state and found that more than 4,500 puppies were purchased from large scale breeding facilities in Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri and Oklahoma. And that was just during a four month period.
