Two puppy mill news items

KTLA news reporter Lu Parker went inside the cruel arena of puppy mills with this first report. Once again, we hear from a store operator, stating they never get dogs from puppy mills.

Oh yeah – and BP didn’t under-report the amount of oil gushing into the Gulf and before the recent mine explosion all the safety regulations were being met and before that the cow jumped over the moon. …. right.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

And the second item includes a video featuring “Twilight” star Rachelle Lefevre

Lefevre supports Best Friends Animal Society and speaks out about the horrors of puppy mills.

    i have a wee puppy mill survivor…there was a ‘mill bust’ in Mayfield, Ky on Dec 16, ’09…..may dogs were taken, i believe most, if not all were Chihuahuas. several of them were taken 2 a shelter not very far from me. i went in there 1 day 1 see them n 1 of them caught my eye. her name was Jane~that was my mum’s name although she was called Jeanie.
    i was allowed 2 cuddle this wee girl for about a half hour n i fell in love with her. i asked if i could take her home for the weekend n they told me 2 come back the next day. i brought her home for 3 days then when the time came 2 take her back I DID NOT WANT TO…………i scrounged up the $150. for her~paying in 3 installments, lol. she’s been with us for 3 months now n she fits in with my 4 other dogs n 7 cats. she weighs about 4-5lbs n all of my cats r bigger than she is.

    Yes, puppy mills are at or near the top of the list of problems that our local, state and federal governments need to address – in the area of animal welfare.

    I do not comprehend why in this great country the USA, this horrid abuse is allowed. There is the USDA that is NOT doing their job. Maybe we should investigate them also.

    I would LOVE to have another senior, puppy mill survivor (Miniature Pinscher)!!
    Lily spent NINE YEARS in a mill in Chicago before it was raided last year. She has been part of my family pack for almost 6 mos. now. Lives the life of a Queen!
