Oh Dog! It’s Sunday, so that means it’s time for a visit with Dear DeDe. That’s me!!!!
Do you hate puppy mills? I sure do. I can’t believe that the people of this country still allow those hell-holes to exist. Does that describe your feelings?
Then how about doing something about it?
The Humane Society of the United States is sponsoring a ‘Why Puppy Mills Stink” video contest! I know some of you are into making your own videos, so here’s a chance to show the rest of us your stuff!
If your video is chosen, it will be broadcast on TV in your state! Are you game? Then go to the HSUS website for all the details!
But ya better do it soon, because the deadline for submitting your video is May 6th.
Just think…. one day soon I could be watching TV and see your video educating people on why puppy mills are bad.
When that happens, can I have your pawtograph?
Have a great week everybody!

Wouldn’t it be cool if one of our friends made a video?!?!?!
How terrible those puppy mills are!!! They are one of the reasons that innocent animals end up suffering….
We think that is a great idea to make a “Puppy Mills Stink video” and to share it with lots of people to let them know how terrible it is!
Have a great weekend, Dear DeDe! 🙂
AND they also get attention to their skills, so EVERYBODY wins!
I hate puppy farms! They stink! If I could just exercise my ice wolf fangs on the unmentionables who are behind these dens of horror….Not very experienced with video but for this purpose will give it a go 🙂
Awesome! I can’t wait to see it!
good luck to you! I hope this menace stops!
It will stop when we convince people to stop buying dogs from these horrific places.
Horrendous that these things happen in the 21st century.
Oh but it does! There are some not so very far from where we live.
We despise puppy mills and the “people” running them make us sick–the only reason being to profit at the expense of the poor innocent animals. Thank you for this post DeDe. xo Berner Girls
Let’s get our video-making friends to make videos to submit! YAY!!!
Puppy Mills should be done away with, as well as those Shopping Mall Pet Stores as we have heard so many horrible stories about them. They do not take care of the animals and just want to make a buck. I was adopted from the APL after my dog mom was poisoned with anti-freeze after giving birth to me and my six siblings, but the APL took the best care of me & we survived. They are nothing like these puppy mills! We are helping raise money for the APL and have only 14 days left for donations, if anyone would like to donate to the APL and help us raise money for a GOOD cause, here is the link: http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/themesnthings/2012-doggy-dollars-kitty-kash Maybe we all need to write to congress to get these mills shut down already!
YAY! Thanks Nikita! I hope they generate lots of donations!
Oh neat, I didn’t know that there was a contest! That should give puppy mills a kick in the teeth!
Yeah! I hope they get LOTS of entries!
Wow! All the awful things I fond out about doing Nellie’s visiting! No wonder she gets so crabby sometimes. Puppy mills is awful!
Thanks for bringing them up, now I’m off to write some nasty letters!
Oh Kozmo, this is a GOOD thing! This contest will get people involved and interested! YAY!!!
Puppy mills suck!!! Thanks DeDe for sharing this wonderful info– this sounds like it will be an awesome nationwide PSA!
I think it’s a GREAT idea! I can’t wait to see some of the winning videos.
Ahhh! It worked! Great public announcement for awareness! Happy Earth Day!
I think it’ll be a real hit!
Good work DeDe. We’ll see if we can get the humans to work the video camera. Thanks for talking about this important issue.

Oh Dog! I hope they do! I’d love to see your video!
I hope some people come up with some very good videos for this.
Oh I bet there will be Bongo!
That sounds like a FUN contest…and a great cause. Do you think they’d take a cat seriously?
; ) Katie
Oh Dog! I thought of you when I first heard of the contest! The Real Housecats oughtta make an appearance!
can’t wait to see those videos. My peeps just learning so we won’t send in one this time. paw pats Savannah
We won’t either, but I so hope others do!
yup! I am sure other anipals will rise to the call! luv your posts!
Mom can’t make a video. She just has a dumb phone right now and her camera is a big ol DSLR with no video but I hope lots are submitted, Rumpy.
It’s gonna be so exciting to see all the entries isn’t it?
i don’t like puppy mills!! i wish they would be shut down!
Me too, but the truth is that is long as there’s a demand, there will be puppy mills. Hopefully through public outreach like this we can convince people to STOP buying from these horrible places!
We adopted our Pointer friend from the Humane Society in Missoula Montan. She had been part of a puppy mill for about 6 years and the owners then just turned her in to the Humane Society. She has done very well with us for over 5 years now but it took several of those years for her to figure out what really being a dog was all about and what it is like to have a friend.
That’s very sad…..
I hope it was a great and fun day.. I love you all, nia
Way to go DeDe. You are a fantastic ambassador for dogs!
Ai jus’ cnt B’leeev w’at a pawsum ideer tihs is!
Reblogged this on delia1979.
Puppy mills are truly horrible–and I am very pleased to say that I know of none near enough to me to video!
The video is a psa to teach people to not buy puppy mill dogs!
Your blog is the go-to place for information on how to fight for animal rights!
