ABC's Nightline Puppy Mill Special Tonight

 |  Mar 27th 2009  |   2 Contributions


I just got word from Anna Nirva, founder of Sunbear Squad, that Nightline is having a very special show tonight. Most of you recognize Anna as the person who brings us our tip of the week, but she also dedicates all her free time to help save animals lives'.

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.

If you're going to around tonight this is definitely worth watching, or DVR it if you can. We need to make sure the word keeps getting out about the horror of puppy mills, more laws are put into place, and that the breeders won't be able to hide their dirty little secrets behind closed doors anymore.

Take a look at Nightline's site to find out more information about tonight's show, and to watch a short video preview clip.
