There are hundreds of thousands of dogs suffering in
commercial kennels across this country. They are kept in small cages for
their entire lives. They are bred every time they come into season from
six months on - twice a year every year, year after year after year. They
freeze in the winter with no heat and swelter in the summer. These dogs
never know a loving touch. Never have a single toy. Never have a soft bed
or a treat.
Commercial kennels breed dogs to sell to pet stores. If
every person in this country stopped buying dogs in pet stores, the
commercial kennels would go out of business and the puppymills would end.
Please tell everyone you know about the connection between pet stores and
Help Spread the Word
Hearts United for Animals has just created an educational
CD about commercial kennels. On the CD you will find a twenty minute movie
and information about how to help the dogs in the kennels. We hope that
people will show the movie at presentations to educate the public about
commercial kennels. Or you can set the movie up to play on a laptop
computer and put it at an adoption fair or at a business - let it play
over and over. It will attract a crowd. You could show it at a boy/girl
scout meeting, a school class, a social club, rescue meetings, shelter
functions or church groups. It's great for kids to learn about commercial
kennels and educate their friends - a powerful show and tell. Or give one
to someone who is not informed about puppymills.
Host a Presentation
The CDs require Quick Time to play so only play on
computers not tvs. (This is not a high production value movie from
Hollywood!) You can play it on any computer - we would recommend a large
screen monitor. Or you can use a digital projector and project it on a
screen. Quick Time is on the CD or you can download it for free from the
www.apple.com website. For a limited time, we are giving these CDs away at
no charge. You have to pay a packing and shipping charge of 3 dollars.
They are limited to one per customer. To order go to our store - http://www.nexternal.com/tss.
Click on Prisoners of Greed. You don't have to order anything else from
the store. Of course if you see something you like, we would appreciate
any order to help offset the cost of creating and donating these CDs.
Discount coupons for dog lovers are available.
