Nightline Show on Puppymills

Hi everyone — set your TIVO’s for a show about puppymills tonight, Friday 27th, at 11:35 PM.  I can’t stress enough how much suffering is caused by these people.  As our board member Ivy’s email signature says,

“Puppy mills thrive on secrecy. The people who buy puppies from pet stores or the Internet have been duped into
believing that the high price they pay means that their puppy has been carefully bred, his parents loved and treated well. Nothing could be further from the truth.”

It is such a relief that this veil of secrecy is beginning to be pierced.

From a local rescuer to the Lancaster County puppymills, and part of tonight’s show:


ABC Correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi and investigators from Nightline travel the byways and back roads of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania – visiting numerous puppy mills and filming Main Line Animal Rescue’s volunteers as they rescue breeding dogs and puppies from Lancaster County’s notorious Amish commercial breeding facilities.

This promises to be a very special program.  If you are involved in rescue, advocate on behalf of the millions of puppy mill dogs interned in our nation’s commercial dog breeding facilities, or if you just simply love animals, you will not want to miss this.

Sharyn Alfonsi interviewed, on camera, an Amish breeder while touring his facility – a first for network television.  With approximately 500 dogs housed on his property, this commercial breeder speaks openly about an industry cloaked in secrecy and suspicion – the cruel factory farming of man’s best friend.

PLEASE tell your friends, your family, your coworkers – ABC Nightline investigates puppy mills – this Friday at 11:35 pm (Eastern Standard Time).  Please take the time to forward this to all the rescues, shelters, and legislators in your area.

It has been almost one year since Oprah’s puppy mill show aired.  That program received the highest viewer response of any Oprah Show in years.  Now we need to spread the word about this very special Nightline.  Only by educating as many people as we can, will we be able to help these animals.  And after you watch the program, please don’t hesitate to contact ABC and Nightline to thank them for casting such a strong light on the plight of our nation’s puppy mill dogs.
