RESCUE MISSION: Deborah Howard is seeking local help in preventing cruelty to animals in pet shops and the so-called puppy mills that supply them.
Howard founded the Cohasset-based Companion Animal Protection Society in 1992, and has since taken her fight nationwide. Though the pet-store issue isn’t as big in Massachusetts (there are no pet shops in Boston, she said), there are chain pet stores in communities across the area, and she’d like to launch protests there.

Somebody has a sense of humor... Driving down the Post Road today this is what I saw, a shut down puppy mills double billboard (no less) from the Companion Animal Protection Society, just a hundred feet away from a real pet shop, Puppies of Westport. They must be thrilled, and so must Models Against Pet Shops and Puppy Mills.

Remember that doggy in the window? The one with the waggly tail? In some places, he would now be illegal -- no matter how much he costs.

Kiley Wirtz Jennings, a Dallas-based model, doesn’t get many days off. But a couple of years ago, she found herself with some rare spare time and spent it, as so many of us do, on Facebook.
Except that Jennings (whose first name is pronounced “Keel-ey”) found something that shook her up.

CAPS NY Director Barbara Dennihy took a booth for the second year in a row to educate consumers about pet shops and puppy mills.
There was lots of interest this year. The huge "Models Against Pet Shops and Puppy Mills" banner had people stopping by all day to ask about the campaign and our work.
Dennihy also spoke about New York State Senate Bill S3753 and how New Yorkers can help get it passed. Passage of this bill will allow local municipalities to regulate pet dealers in NY state communities.
Thank you Barbara for your hard work and dedication!
