Puppy FYI

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."

Since finding out that we purchased Chloe from a puppy mill back in June (click HERE to read about Chloe's story), I have been following many stories that pop up in the news regarding other mills. Today, I read on the Humane Society's website that Petland pet store is "nation's largest retail supporter of puppy mills." Click HERE to learn more about this story and find out what you can do to take action. The main thing is to stop shopping there so that we don't support this cruelty!

An update about the woman who sold us Chloe:
(From Channel 5 news, Aug 08)
"A grand jury charges a woman accused of running the largest puppy mill in Tennessee history. An indictment against Patricia Adkisson includes 24 counts of aggravated animal cruelty, which is a felony. She's also charged with more than a dozen other misdemeanors."

That makes me sooo sad. I wish I had lots of land to take in lots of puppies. At least you saved your baby from these horrible things.

Wow! Thanks for the information. I am so glad to know that justice was served!
