puppy mill dogI mentioned this the other day and just wanted to take a moment to remind everyone that Oprah is doing a segment on puppy mills. It’s long overdue that this horror is highlighted by a big name and that’s what Oprah is. She’ll be dedicating the show to the memory of her dearly departed cocker, Sophie, that recently passed away from kidney failure.

Says Winfrey, “Our show today is for anybody anywhere who loves a dog, has ever loved a dog, or just cares about their basic right to humane treatment. I’m dedicating this hour to my little Sophie, who you may have heard died last month.”

Here’s a note from Wayne Pacelle of the HSUS

I invite you to watch an extraordinary hour of television tomorrow (Friday, April 4): “The Oprah Winfrey Show” is scheduled to air a special episode highlighting the cruel realities of puppy mills.

Millions of “Oprah” show viewers will be shocked when they learn of the underhanded tactics and deplorable practices used to mass produce purebred puppies and designer dogs, as seen in an investigative report by Lisa Ling. Animal lovers nationwide will also see what impact these “factories” have on pet overpopulation.

I’ll be a guest on the show, sharing the expertise of The HSUS and our campaigns to stop puppy mills and end pet overpopulation.

So, find out when and where the show is in your area, watch it, record it but don’t miss it!! Tell friends, family, associates, everyone!  The more people who learn about puppy mills, exactly what they are, the more chance there is of chance, something desperately needed for these innocent and defenseless dogs.
