Anti-Puppy Mill Rallies

Wayne Pacelle, CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, had a blog post yesterday about the progress being made in trying to eliminate puppy mills.  You can see the blog post here, but one of the things I found most exciting is that rallies are being organized for THIS WEEKEND across the nation at Petland stores, where puppy mill puppies are still being sold.  Click here to find a rally in your area.  What better way to spend the day before Mother’s Day than advocating for the four-legged babies who can’t fend for themselves?
