Opportunity to SAVE Puppy Mill Dogs
We just got word that a mill is shutting down (hooray!) and
the dogs all need to be placed. We want to prevent them from being killed or sold to other millers. Several rescue groups are involved to try to save them. As you will see from the list (link is below), they are not all puppies but they ARE all small breed dogs from a puppy mill. Since SAP's kennel is full and funds are so tight, the only way we can help is to have people volunteer to either sponsor or foster one of these little guys until they are ready for adoption. Anyone who has worked with a puppy mill dog can tell you what a rewarding experience it is.
We also think our involvement would be a great tool to continue educating the public about puppy mills and pet stores. The media has taken an interest in our efforts and this would be a very effective way of demonstrating the suffering behind the cute puppies in the window, and the terrible contribution pet stores and puppy mills make to the overpopulation problem.
Please - if you have temporary room for a small breed dog and/or can help financially to sponsor one, let me know immediately. We have to know how many we can save ASAP. Please contact Dana or myself by Thursday morning. Even if we can only save a couple, it's still a couple of lives who suffered terribly every day and deserve to be shown what being a dog should really be about.

Thanks so much,
