Puppy Mill Awareness Meetup (Southeast Michigan) Message Board › Put and End to Puppy Mills - House Party for HSLF
We had a private party this weekend joining the 100 parties across the country to raise funds and learn how to put an end to puppy mills. We watched a short video, joined the conference call and ended up raising $347. Thank you everyone that donated!
Animal advocates heard from two of the most ardent opponents of puppy mills, Congressmen Farr and Gerlach. Throughout their careers, Reps. Farr and Gerlach have been leaders of animal protection legislation in Congress, particularly the issue of stopping puppy mill cruelty. They are currently preparing to reintroduce the Puppy Uniform Protection and Safety (PUPS) Act in the 111th Congress, which would provide basic animal care standards for large-scale production facilities that sell puppies over the Internet and directly to the public, who currently escape any federal oversight. It would also require that all dogs at puppy mills get out of their cages for exercise at least 60 minutes a day.
