You would be pleased to know that we are certainly not the only grassroots group protesting pet stores and educating the public about puppy mills. I was able to find 49 grassroots groups working against puppy millers in different ways!
Some groups not only protest, but conduct investigations, rescue, educated and others are lobbying and passing legislation.
On a regular basis, I am staying connected with the Puppy Mill Project (Illinois), Iowa Voters for Companion Animals, Ban Ohio Dog Auctions, Michiana Pet Shop Puppies (Indiana), the Companion Animal Protection Society and PetShopPuppies (Missouri), as well as, all the big national organization with anti-puppy mill campaigns.
This month Wisconsin Citizens Against Puppy Mills leaders came to town to learn about how we launch and hold pet store education campaigns.
