Laura Flynn-Amato runs the rescue group No More Tears-

No More Tears Rescue's main goal is to save puppy mill dogs who can no longer breed for profit. We rescue and rehabilitate these unsocialized dogs and most have numerous medical issues that need attention. Finding their forever homes is not easy and consists of patience, love, and understanding. The end result is rewarding once the dogs learn to trust and give unconditional love for the very first time in their lives.

Here are some of the dogs that she has rescued-

    Thank you for raising the public's awareness of puppy mills so our society will eventually shut them down by refusing to buy from these sources. I enjoyed the call. It is so great the film was on HBO where so many people will see it. I am sure the film will make a big difference in the public's perception of where they get their dogs.
