Puppy Mill Walk On Mag Mile

Why not march for puppies? After all, they march for everything else these days. Dog lives do matter – not poking fun, just saying if pets are members of the family (and over 90 percent say they are), how do we allow puppy mills to exist – and even thrive? Puppy Mill Awareness Day is…

Pet Store Issue Heats Up in Arizona

State legislators in Arizona voted on Thursday (March 17) to prevent cities from banning pet stores from from selling animals they get from commercial breeders or puppy mills.

Puppy Mills: Let's At Least Try To Stop Them

Puppy mills certainly did exist 21 years ago when I authored my first national newspaper column, and also when I first hit the airwaves with a pet radio show shortly thereafter.
