Main Line Animal Rescue Making Headlines


Main Line Pet Shelters Go from Shabby to Chic

KING OF PRUSSIA, May 1, 2015 / Main Line Today / -- "At the crux of these guidelines is a knowledge of animal psychology and the effects of abuse. MLAR is at the forefront of the battle against puppy mills, even working with Oprah Winfrey on a segment for her old talk show. Puppy-mill dogs are flight risks 80-90 percent of the time, says Smith. That’s why fences are crucial."

NBC to Air "Best In Shelter With Jill Rappaport"

NEW YORK, Feb. 18, 2015 / PRNewswire / -- "Producing Best in Shelter with Jill Rappaport is one way we can draw attention to the important issue of homeless animals and raise awareness to help them find loving owners and permanent homes."

Consumers said to be biggest losers in USDA purge of puppy mill and other data

The United States Department of Agriculture surprised state officials, businesses and animal welfare organizations last week when it removed a database of inspection reports from its website. The records included reports and enforcement records for dog breeding facilities, research labs, zoos and circuses. The move prompted an outcry.

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.
