Education: Teach, Rally
We educate the dog-buying public,legislators, and the media about the conditions at unethical dog breeder operations and their connections to pet stores, Internet puppy sales and “parking lot” puppy sales.
We attend events, hold rallies and maintain a website, blog and an email newsletter.
Research: Playing Detective
We regularly order inspection reports from the Pet Animal CareFacilities Act (PACFA) program under the auspices of the Colorado Department of Agriculture. Currently, we are researching a number of pet store inspection reports and documenting any unresolved issues.
Policy: Hear Ye!
We support the efforts of animal welfare organizations that develop laws that will improve the health and welfare of puppymill dogs. We communicate to the public, stakeholders, legislators and the media to encourage the passing of these laws.
