Puppy Mills = Puppy Cruelty

Finding Fido -- Stopping Puppy Mills!

In just three short months our Finding Fido program, one generously supported by donors like you, has educated tens of thousands of Canadians about the blight of puppy mills and has prevented impulse buying of dogs and puppies (many of which would have ended up being dumped at already overcrowded shelters).

Our social media presence has been gaining momentum.  However, since the success of this program depends on a critical mass of Canadians learning about puppy mills and making the decision to get their next dog through a humane society, SPCA, shelter, rescue or reputable breeder, WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP

If you haven't 'Liked' or "Friended' us on Facebook, please do and help us spread the word to as many people as possible.  Our continued success depends on this.  You can find us on FB at:

You can also see a great video produced by Fido, our 'Top Dog' Sponsor.  It was produced at Pawlooza where we kicked off the Finding Fido program.
