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.
