Nightline investigation on puppy mills tonight - 3/27/09

This just came through my e-mail lists.
Quote:
Well friends, once again, the cat is out of the bag - or should we say the dog out of the hutch! This Friday night, March 27, ABC's Nightline will be investigating puppy mills!

ABC Correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi and investigators from Nightline travel the byways and back roads of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania -visiting numerous puppy mills and filming Main Line Animal Rescue's volunteers as they rescue breeding dogs and puppies from Lancaster County's notorious Amish commercial breeding facilities.

This promises to be a very special program. If you are involved in rescue, advocate on behalf of the millions of puppy mill dogs interned in our nation's commercial dog breeding facilities, or if you just simply love animals, you will not want to miss this.

Sharyn Alfonsi interviewed, on camera, an Amish breeder while touring his facility - a first for network television. With approximately 500 dogs housed on his property, this commercial breeder speaks openly about an industry cloaked in secrecy and suspicion - the cruel factory farming of man's best friend.

PLEASE tell your friends, your family, your coworkers - ABC Nightline investigates puppy mills - this Friday at 11:35 pm (Eastern Standard Time). Please take the time to forward this to all the rescues, shelters, and legislators in your area.

It has been almost one year since Oprah's puppy mill show aired. That program received the highest viewer response of any Oprah Show in years. Now we need to spread the word about this very special Nightline. Only by educating as many people as we can, will we be able to help these animals. And after you watch the program, please don't hesitate to contact ABC and Nightline to thank them for casting such a strong light on the plight of our nation's puppy mill dogs.

Main Line Animal Rescue

Friday's airing of Nightline's investigation of puppy mills is subject to breaking news. If for any reason it is not shown, it will air the beginning of next week. Please check listings for your time zone.
Bold emphasis mine.

With all the legislation they're trying to pass I'm worried that this will add fuel to the fire and cross over to good breeders. We seem to be paying the price for idiots like this.

Thank you so much for this. The key to eradicate this disgusting problem is to expose it to as many people as we possible can. I'll be sure to tune in! Thx

I'll be sure to watch this, too.

something like 350 dogs rescued this wk from a mill here in Arkansas. 29 of those dogs are at the shelter I volenteer at. I haven't been by, and kind of don't want to

Jan, unfortunately, it's a double-edged sword. Oprah's show last year came during the midst of our fight against AB1634 and helped to educate a lot of people about puppy mills. Now maybe this one can do the same.
