Moo-ving people toward compassionate living
From Pamela Bertsch - 26 Nov 2004
Dear Frank and Mary:
You're welcome! The only thing I can think of to add to your website would be pictures of puppy mills. At the SPCA of Texas we rescue so many dogs from puppy mills! Last summer we rescued over 350 just in one mill! The dogs were covered in feces and some had been 4 or 5 to a small cage all their lives. Some for 10 years! I found out it's not against the law, at least here in Texas, for dogs to live their lives in cages as long as they can stand up and turn around and they're not standing on chicken wire. Is that sick??? I'm going to try to get the Texas Humane Legislation Network to start a campaign against that law.
There really needs to be an outcry for the puppy mill dogs of this country as well. We can only rescue them when the situations are outrageous. As long as they're healthy and not breaking any laws the puppy mills and all the unhappy dogs stay put according to law.
The dogs the SPCA of Texas rescued this past summer were so happy after their baths and smelled so much better. Some of the poor dogs paws were so coated that you couldn't even tell where their paws were! We had to soak them until we could cut the feces away from their pads. After we did that they went to their beds and shuffled their paws like, "I have feet!" It was so cute! Their spirits lifted in about three days once they knew they were in a save environment. --- I think most people think puppy mills have been outlawed years ago. FYI --- The show 20/20 has been at our SPCA for quite some time now. They plan to do a story about all the money being made by the puppy mills and about our rescues. It will be a great show and will bring many Americans into awareness of this gross atrocity.
I will continue reading your web site. I feel I've just scratched the surface as there is so much to read. You're truly a blessing!

Thank you very much for your reply.
If you can get us some photos and descriptions of any of these puppy mills and/or rescues, they would go a long way helping us present the case against puppy mills. The before and after shots of the dogs you described in your letter would also make a great article.
We look forward to hearing from you again.
In the Love of the Lord,
Frank and Mary
