What is a Puppy Mill?
A Puppy Mill is a subpar breeding facility that prioritizes financial gain over the welfare of its animals. Not only is it an environment of cruelty and inhumanity, but it often defies legal standards or government regulations.
We are Licensed by the USDA
Teacup PuppySpot proudly holds a USDA license (certification #23-D-1093) and mandates that every breeder within our network also holds a license, except in cases where they are exempt from USDA licensing requirements.
Evaluation, Verification, and Assessment of Breeders
Teacup PuppySpot employs a data-driven approach to assess and screen numerous breeders nationwide, curating an exclusive network of dedicated breeder partners devoted to canine welfare.
Our comprehensive breeder application involves:
- Scrutiny of ownership and operational records.
- On-site visits.
- Criminal background screenings.
- Facility inspections.
- Compliance assessments.
- Reviews of governmental and humanitarian databases.
- Thorough evaluations of their veterinary history.
This meticulous process ensures our commitment to partnering only with the most reputable and caring breeders.
Exclusive Breeder Screening Process
Apart from adhering to USDA regulations, Teacup PuppySpot enforces a comprehensive, exclusive screening protocol that all breeders must successfully navigate during onboarding and annually after that. This stringent process, formulated by our independent Scientific Advisory Board, surpasses national standards, ensuring the highest level of scrutiny and care in our breeder network.
