Watch the Webinar Now: Stop Puppy Mills: Advocating for Change
Description: Do you know how to tell if a dog or puppy has come from a puppy mill? As part of National Puppy Mill Action Week, learn about the lives of animals in puppy mills, the most common problems inherent in these mass breeding facilities, and what can be done to address them.
Participants will be given tools to report suspected puppy mills, and learn how to educate their communities about this form of animal cruelty. The webinar introduces many of the topics covered more comprehensively in the HSU self-paced online course, Stop Puppy Mills: Advocating for Change.
