In 1989, Deborah Howard walked into an Atlanta pet shop and was shocked by the conditions. The place was dirty, and there were lots of sick puppies, including a small yellow Labrador retriever who pressed against the small cage with an oozing cut on his leg.

Anyone who has ever seen a PETA advertising campaign – that’s the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals – knows that there has long been a link between show business and animal rights. Now, a local non-profit organization that has spent over 20 years standing up for animals has launched its own campaign, with the help of some very glamorous people: models, stylists, photographers and more from the fashion industry.
This is similar to legislation passed in 30 other cities across the country. CAPS has spearheaded three other similar ordinances in Southern California. Los Angeles was the latest, with 24 stores that will no longer be able to sell puppies from inhumane factory farms.
After our submission early last year of a two year investigation of San Diego Pet Stores, and their puppy mill suppliers, the committee has decided to move forward on this issue.
ALL ANIMAL ORGANIZATIONS DEVOTED TO PROTECTING ANIMALS, PLEASE ATTEND! THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT MEETING!
WHEN: Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at 2PM
Where: City Administration Building – Council Committee Room – 12th Floor
202 C Street
San Diego, CA
Please join this important effort!

HOLLEY, NY, February 1, 2013- The annual Hazzard County Squirrel Slam may be a fundraiser for the Holley Fire Department, but for animal lovers everywhere the event is a nightmare. Companion Animal Protection Society, a national non-profit dedicated to protecting companion animals of all species, is calling for a boycott of the event and a global campaign to stop it.
