Dear Friend,

Do you know about puppy mills? If you don’t — and even if you do — then you’ve got to watch this undercover video:

Puppy mills are large scale operations that force breeder dogs to produce litter after litter to support consumer demand for puppies. Puppies sold in pet stores or through Internet sites come from places filled with suffering, disease, malnutrition, and loneliness. Even the puppies themselves are often prone to a variety of diseases. Some die within days or weeks of purchase.

The Humane Society of the United States is working to stop puppy mills and they need your help.

Please watch this short video that exposes the cruelty of puppy mills. Then, you can take action by pledging to stop supporting the retailers that perpetuate cruel breeding practices.

    (Boston, MA) – April 04, 2008 – Deborah Howard President of the Greater Boston area’s Companion Animal Protection Society applauds Oprah Winfrey on her plans to dedicate an entire show to investigating the abuses at puppy mills today, April 04, 2008. The show is dedicated to her cocker spaniel, Sophie, who died last month from kidney failure.

    Deborah Howard, President of The Companion Animal Protection Society had the following comment: “It’s wonderful to see a media powerhouse like Oprah getting behind a cause that The Companion Animal Protection Society has been dedicated to for over sixteen years. We truly hope that this is only the first of an ongoing series.”

    The Companion Animal Protection Society is the only national nonprofit dedicated exclusively to the protection of companion Animals and the top investigative force of puppy mills in the United States.

    Today’s show features special correspondent Lisa Ling investigating puppy mills, which Ling calls “horrific” and “haunting.” Winfrey says the show is “for anybody anywhere who loves a dog, has ever loved a dog, or just cares about their basic right to humane treatment.”
