JT, filter to category General and find the article, PSA Overview

Only through awareness and information can consumers avoid being conned by deceitful pet stores and Internet sellers. CAPS provides valuable information and reliable documentation to local and national publications and news programs. We also raise awareness about companion animal abuse, particularly the plight of pet shops and puppy mill dogs, through our informative Public Service Announcements (PSAs) and literature.

CAPS in the Media

To raise awareness about the horrors of the pet shops and puppy mills, CAPS has generated stories with the following media: CNN, "Dateline," "20/20," "Hard Copy," Reader's Digest, Life, People, Detroit Free Press, The Philadelphia Inquirer (two front page articles) and numerous local television news stations and newspapers

CAPS worked for more than a year with Dateline to prepare "A Dog's Life," the in-depth report on pet shops and puppy mills that aired on April 26 and May 10 of 2000. This well-researched piece focused not only on Petland, the largest chain in the country, and the puppy mills that deal with Petland and other pet shops, but also on the American Kennel Club's and USDA's roles in this tragic problem. "A Dog's Life" won a Genesis award in the network newsmagazine category.
