Puppy Mills must be stopped!
Lily, wearing tag #251, crouched, suffering in a small wire cage at the auction. Breeding dogs were being sold to the highest bidder. Lily looked straight into Theresa's eyes that day and asked for help. Theresa purchased Lily and promised to "shower her with love until the day she died". For the next 15 months Lily learned about being a dog. She learned about soft beds, belly rubs and rolling in the grass. But most importantly, Lily learned what love felt like. Despite surgeries and the best care possible, the 7 years of neglect at the puppy mill had taken it's toll on her body. On May 13, 2008 Lily passed away. Theresa vowed, in Lily's name, to take up the cause for the mill dogs and thus, National Mill Dog Rescue was born.
Please join in their efforts and tell everyone you know the story of Lily and the plight of mill dogs everywhere, as she continues to watch over them from the heavens.

They have the chance to win $250,000 and all it requires is ONE VOTE FROM YOU. No money necessary, just your vote, one time.

Such policies ought to include: an outright ban on advertising of breeds associated with dog fighting ; all giveaway dogs and puppies ('free to good home" pets); exotic reptiles such as venomous snakes,…
There are a lot of people fighting the war against backyard breeders and puppy mills, but a publication like this will just provide yet another platform for those breeders. There are enough animals in shelters who're looking for homes, and this will only damage their chances of finding the forever homes that they deserve. There are many disgusting people out there who will use this to obtain…
