ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (KRQE) – A New Mexico animal shelter is trying to bring awareness about puppy mills in an unusual way.

They’ll be holding graveside services Thursday for more than a dozen puppies they say are victims.

Animal Village in Alamogordo says they’ve received four different litters of inbred dogs in just the last 35 days.

Around 13 of those puppies were born with birth defects and died.

The shelter says illegal breeders try to make big money on these puppies, in some cases thousands of dollars but keep the animals in awful conditions and use the other’s as breeding machines. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
