On April 30, 2014, CAPS held a cocktail party at the Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center to celebrate the launch of our “Models Against Pet Shops and Puppy Mills” ad campaign in all of the MBTA commuter trains and at 20 stations in Boston. Even though I had to share the spotlight with ALL of my bratty brothers (Spencer, Wylie, and Oliver), that didn’t stop me from being CAPS’ fabulous spokesmodel. I had so much fun! Hopefully, Mother will be organizing more cocktail parties in the near future.

It’s Easter weekend and Los Angeles rabbit rescuers are at war with senior management of LA Animal Services for not responding to what the rescuers are calling a “horrific, large scale case of rabbit abuse.” Time is running out for sixty-five sick and dying rabbits and one frustrated local rescue group is accusing LA’s top animal control official of “stonewalling and inaction.”

CAPS HOLDING MEET AND GREET: If you want to meet and take photos with radio hosts Loren Owens and Wally Brine from WROR-FM, TV newscaster Susan Wornick, and Boston Herald columnist and radio host Jaclyn Cashman — not to mention one very cute basset hound — check out the Cohasset-based Companion Animal Protection Society’s April 30 event. The society’s MBTA ad campaign launch party is being held that day at the Seaport Hotel & World Trade Center in Boston, from 5:30 to 8 p.m., with advance tickets priced at $25, or $30 at the door.
The national ad campaign is designed to educate the public about puppy mills and the risks associated with buying dogs at pet shops supplied by those facilities. The ads, featuring professional models and rescue dogs, appear on MBTA commuter trains and at 20 train stations.
At the launch party, attendees can take pictures not just with human hosts but also with CAPS “spokesdog” Beatrice, a basset hound puppy-mill survivor and canine star of the ad campaign. The party will also feature free drinks and appetizers, gift bags, a silent auction, and a raffle.
The organization was founded by Deborah Howard of Hull, who owns Beatrice and other rescued animals. For information and tickets, visit www.caps-web.org.
