How to help stop puppymills. http://www.prisonersofgreed.org/actions.html There are some great suggestions here. Not everyone has time to worry about puppymills, but for those that want to make a difference, here are some helpful ideas. Sometimes, all it takes is telling someone "don't buy from petstores" and educating them about puppymills. Not everyone wants to hear it, but if you can change one person's mind, you've done a good job.
I will definitely use this when I have the opportunity. I feel, and maybe I'm still a little young and I dream too big, that it's my life's calling to save the abandoned and mistreated pets in the world.
Ya know Frostygirl, I bet there is a local Bichon rescue group in your area you could totally help out if you have the time. You should check into it..you seem to really want to do something and that could be a good place to start.
I totally want to do something. I've gone through high school and will be starting community college soon and I didn't know until now what to do with my life. I figured something would come along that I liked to do, but not like this! I hope to eventually open a shelter that has a policy like the one for unwanted babies, You come in and drop off the dog, no questions asked and I'll take it in, give it vet care, training, grooming, and socialize it until it finds a family. And no deaths allowed! And I know I definitely want to volunteer at a shelter so I can get experienc ewith big dogs. I haev one I want to try out, but I don't know they'll accept me. I have owned big dogs, but I'm not sure that's enough to get me in.
