Dog lovers, get your virtual pens out and sign the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS)'s petition to put an end to the abusive puppy mill industry. (It's the industry that's abusive, by the way, not the puppies. The puppies are non-abusive.) The petition is part of the HSUS's third annual National Puppy Mill Action Week, which runs from November 30-December 6. You can go here to sign the petition, which takes less than a minute to complete.
And please consider adopting or rescuing your next dog from a local animal shelter or rescue group rather than buying one from a pet store. If we all do that, we'll send the puppy mills into well-deserved obsolescence.
