Ohio Puppy Mill Bills (S.B. 173 and H.B. 223). Be sure to visit the “Legislation” page on www.BanOhioDogAuctions.com for the latest update regarding these proposed bills.

The Bark Heard Around the World. For many years, Puppymillrescue Inc. has taken in the abused, malnourished, old, young and sickly from the mills of Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania and many other states. Now they find they no longer have to leave their homes in upstate NY to transport dogs in need from the mills – they’re right in their own backyard and spreading rapidly.

To educate citizens about the horrific abuse taking place in those “beautiful white barns”, Puppymill Rescue Inc. invites animal advocates from across the country to participate in the “The Bark Heard Around the World” to be held at the Yates County Fairgrounds in Penn Yan, NY from 10AM – 4PM on Sat., May 17th, 2008.

Scrubbing Dogs to Save Lives. Continuing the momentum following last Friday’s Oprah segment on puppy mills, PetPals at Ohio Wesleyan University (OWU) will be holding a dog wash fundraiser on Sunday, April 13 from 11-2 PM EST at Bark Til Dark Dog Park (Delaware, OH) to help raise awareness of the relationship between OH dog auctions, puppy mills and homeless dogs awaiting adoption in our state’s local shelters and pounds. All proceeds from their dog wash, “Pet Lover’s Gift Basket” raffle, t-shirt (just $10!) and homemade bake sales will be donated to Companion Animal Protection Society – and Humane Society of Delaware County.

As an additional show of support, Columbus Top Dogs will be matching dollar-for-dollar (up to a maximum total of $500) for each organization. Area shelters and rescue groups will also be at the dog park showcasing companions available for adoption. To learn more about this event, please visit the “Events” page at www.BarkTilDarkDogPark.com or contact Event Chair Pooja Dutt at pet_pals@owu.edu.
