How Much is That Doggie in the Window?

Lauren, who said that rescuing her dog Jersey was “one of the easiest decisions I ever made,” moderated the evening’s talk, which included Georgina Bloomberg, Stephanie Mattera, Animal Care Center’s Risa Weinstock and other guests.


Kress, an Emmy award-winning journalist and “not an activist by trade”, admitted to buying a puppy mill dog before researching  “the first real expose on the topic.” She wrote it because “I had to know why our taxpayer dollars fund the system that legalizes these puppy mills.”


Goodwin, Senior Director of The HSUS Stop Puppy Mills campaign said, “Not many people would succumb to buying a puppy from a pet store, or over the Internet, if they knew the mother spent her entire life trapped in a tiny cage.”
