WINNER OF THE CONTEST IS: PAULA KIDNEY! THANKS TO ALL WHO ENTERED
My first Cocker Spaniel was a puppy mill rescue dog. I had no idea at the time (1993) what a puppy mill was, but over the years I have been educated into knowing. The IFAW released a report recently revealed online puppy mills, the horrors of how dogs and puppies are treated, and what we, as pet parents, can do to stop them. A pet holiday may not be a happy one for many dogs and cats.
In conjunction with the ASPCA, a video has been launched called Puppies are Not Toys, and Fidose of Reality is sharing this below.
In addition, the ASPCA is aiming to reduce the high percentage of potential puppy shoppers by encouraging people not to shop for gifts at stores that sell puppies. As an alternative, shoppers may consider giving gifts that make a difference in the lives of animals in need, such as those from the ASPCA online store.
Fidose of Reality celebrates helping pets in need and we’d like to give away an ASPCA holiday gift pack. For one week only, you can enter to win by posting the name of an animal that has touched your life, past or present, in the comments below. We’ll draw one name at random and the ASPCA will send you a goodie pack containing:
ASPCA Orange Tote
Gift Card to Paperless Post
ASPCA Orange Wristband
How to enter? Tell us the name of an animal that has touched your life, past or present, in the comments below Contest starts right now and ends on December 20, 2012.
