Today we have a very important topic to talk about — Puppy Mills. We all know about them and it’s YOU that can make a difference by not supporting them and enlightening others about them. Today we have a spotlight interview with The Puppy Mill Project.
Their Mission is to educate the public and raise awareness about the cruelty of puppy mills and their direct connection to pet stores, internet sites, and newspaper ads that sell dogs. They want pet owners and consumers to know the difference between responsible and irresponsible breeding and have the information to make the best possible choice for their families.
