Animal Planet Airs Special: PUPPY MILLS EXPOSED

Publication date: 2009-04-27
Publication name: Animal Planet
Headline: Animal Planet Airs Special: PUPPY MILLS EXPOSED
Summary:

Tonight [Monday April 27, 2009] at 10:00 pm (ET/PT), Animal Planet will take viewers into the world of puppy mills with "Puppy Mills: Exposed," a special episode of Animal Cops: Philadelphia. The one-hour segment features the President of Companion Animal Protection Society (CAPS), Deborah Howard, an expert in the field of puppy mills and pet shops, as she explains the national issue of pet shop and puppy mills for viewers.


The segment uses CAPS undercover video evidence taken in USDA licensed facilities, including the Hunte Corporation, the largest dog brokering facility in the country. The undercover puppy mill footage shot by CAPS investigators highlights the USDA's failure to enforce the Animal Welfare Act with respect to wholesale dog breeding and brokering operations.

 

In its release about the special, Animal planet stated that "like most people, the [customer] had no idea that virtually all pet store puppies come from large commercial breeding facilities - many of which can be considered puppy mills." CAPS knows this problem only too well, having received numerous complaints over the years from pet shop and internet customers who purchased sick and dying puppies.

Please check local listings for channels and show times. For more information on the Companion Animal Protection Society please visit www.caps-web.org.
