Thanks for the important announcements Rocky. Mom checked my toy box and yep - we had one of those bad balls.
Dear Members and Friends,
I’m writing to let you know about late breaking news from our Campaigns Team. Over the weekend, Best Friends partnered with teams from local and national organizations to remove more than 1,000 puppies and adult dogs from a puppy mill near Parkersburg, West Virginia.
For these dogs, today marks the beginning of a whole new life.
No longer confined to tiny, wire-bottomed cages, they’ll soon be running free in backyards of their own.
No longer forced to breed, they’ll soon be spayed or neutered, so their bodies can relax, and their puppies will no longer take spots in homes that could have been filled with dogs from shelters.
No longer neglected, they’ll soon be well cared for and safe.
No longer ignored, they’ll soon be smothered with affection from new families.
You can read about their rescue on our website and as the days unfold we’ll introduce you to some of the four-legged characters in this redemption tale.
Stay tuned to the Best Friends Network to follow the dogs’ progress. The site will feature video, blogs, forums, and more. You’ll be able to meet many of the rescued dogs, and follow their stories as they move from a sad past to a bright future.
Your financial support made this rescue possible. Without you, these special dogs would have lived out their lives without love, without hope, without families. Instead, they will soon have all the TLC and human companionship they long for. 100% of your donation today will support the Puppies Aren’t Products campaign*, and fund programs that will save more dogs like the ones rescued in West Virginia.
Spread the Word
Puppy mills thrive on secrecy. The people who buy puppies from pet stores or the Internet have been duped into believing that the high price they pay means that their puppy has been carefully bred, his parents loved and treated well. Nothing could be further from the truth. Please forward this e-mail to friends and family and help us spread the word about puppy mills.
Thank you, as always, for caring about the animals, and for supporting the work of Best Friends.
