Puppy Mills on Oprah

We don't usually watch TV but for those who haven't yet heard, this Friday's hour-long Oprah show - April 4th - is scheduled to be devoted to puppy mills, and related topics, such as adoptions, euthanasia, and spay and neuter. Check your local TV listings for the time and channel.

Yes, Oprah Winfrey will do a tear-jerker, so have a box of tissues handy.

If you are interested in reading more on this subject, we refer you to the April 2 post on Wayne Pacelle's blog, A Humane Nation.

Since Oprah Winfrey is so popular and viewed by millions, perhaps this subject will get enough exposure to prompt more people to incite legislation to stop or at least stunt the proliferation and horrors of puppy mills.

  4. Puppy mills are evil. That's good that Oprah can bring it up and front to the public eye. Hopefully that will make people think twice from buying pets at those shady places. Hopefully she will tell her viewers to adopt from shelters!

  7. I heard about that show and we are going to try and record it on Tivo. I think it will be very hard to watch, but it is an important topic for people to be aware of.

  13. I'm so glad Oprah is bringing exposure to this issue. I was at a dog park meeting last night, and a woman who recently moved here from Chicago said that Oprah used to go to their dog park every day and was famous for picking up errant poop--whether it was from her dog or not. It's heartening to see celebrities get real.

  16. We watched it with Mom and we all thought she did a great job. We believe this will help tremendously. The general public needs to be educated. It's a much needed strategy in order to win the battle.
