Dear friends, please take a moment to look at THIS. If you happen to be from Missouri, or know someone who his, please forward the links.
Puppy mills are horrible. Dogs are forced to have several litters a year, they are often kept in cages, aren't allowed to run or even be outside. They aren't given adequate vetrinary care, and are overall treated just horribly.
Get involved. Missiouians, vote on Prop B. If you aren't, check into your state's rules on puppy mills. If they don't have any, write your congressmen and take a stand on this.
**tugtugtug** That's me, tugging at your heartstrings. Did it work? Are you voting? Are you writing?
