PLEASE... NO PUPPIES FOR CHRISTMAS!
Please read the info in this email I received about puppies for Christmas... and pass it on, as they suggest!
"Three days ago, The Humane Society of the United States revealed in a shocking undercover investigation that puppies sold by California’s upscale Pets of Bel Air boutique came from puppy mills.
Our investigation showed that anyone, even the rich and famous, could be duped into believing what pet store clerks say about the puppies they sell. The holiday puppy-buying season is in high gear, so please click here to make an emergency donation to support our fight to stop puppy mills and educate consumers.
The HSUS’s undercover investigation revealed that many of the puppies sold at Pets of Bel Air come from puppy mills in Arkansas, Kansas, and Oklahoma. What our investigators found when they visited five of these large-scale breeding operations was appalling -- puppies living in filthy, overcrowded cages reeking of urine, with little to no food or water, and in many cases exposed to the elements. Some of the puppies suffered from untreated physical injuries.
We are committed to putting puppy mills out of business, but we can’t do it without your help. Please make a gift today to help ensure that our campaign to stop puppy mills has the resources it needs throughout 2008 and beyond to:
Assist local agencies with investigations of puppy mill cases
Rescue and shelter dogs from the cruelty of puppy mills
Fight for stronger laws to protect dogs and cats from unscrupulous breeders
Push for better enforcement of existing laws
Convince consumers to stop supporting puppy mills
With hundreds of retail and Internet sites selling puppy mill puppies, our challenge is formidable, particularly at this time of year. But with your support, we will put an end to this cruel and inhumane industry -- and work to protect animals from other kinds of cruelty, too.
Thank you for your commitment to stopping puppy mills and for all that you do for animals."
