Consumers Said to be Biggest Losers in USDA Purge of Puppy Mill Data

WASHINGTON, Feb. 10, 2017 / The Philadelphia Inquirer / -- “ 'It’s not just about dogs, it’s about consumer protection,' said the founder of Main Line Animal Rescue. He said FOIA requests can take years. The Chester County organization has relied on information from the USDA records in other states to pull dogs for adoption. If a kennel has a number of violations, MLAR will contact the kennel and offer to take dogs, Smith said."

Main Line Animal Rescue: We are a Voice for the Animals

CHESTER SPRINGS, November 27, 2016 / Chester County Pet / -- "With around 60 acres of land for doggy playtime, safe outdoor cat areas, optimal on-site veterinary care, and around 500 passionate volunteers, it would seem to be a place no pet would want to leave. However, Bill Smith, found of MLAR, knows that for the animals, adoption is the best result. 'No shelter, no matter how comfortable it is for the animals, is a substitute for a home.' "

Main Line Animal Rescue wrapped transit buses in DC to pressure the USDA to enforce the few laws protecting dogs in our nation's federally licensed puppy mills. 

Interesting to know, our buses were so successful, the men and women who approve advertising in DC have banned bus wraps specifically mentioning puppy mills. In exchange for advertisers' cooperation they are now allowing them to advertise alcohol and cigarettes. Apparently, they would rather people die of lung cancer than stop the wide-spread abuse in our nation's puppy mills.

Spreading the Word.
