Work to end puppy mills

When I talked to folks for my book about the first big decision relating to life with a dog — that is, bringing him or her home — I heard one thing loud and clear: Remember the homeless dogs, the shelter dogs, the dogs in rescues and foster homes. Folks who had purchased their dogs from pet stores told me that while they may have loved their store-bought pups, they regretted and would not repeat the choice. Joining the fraternity of dog people, they learned about the mass breeding operations that supply shops and vowed not to be a part of the problem again. Saturday, September 20, is Puppy Mill Awareness Day — an opportunity to learn more and support efforts to end this cruelty.

    Thank you for highlighting Puppy Mill Awareness Day. As a veterinarian, I support your goal of driving these places out of business. Keep up the good work!
