Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

Plan Ahead For Your Pets’ Care… Like Oprah

According to a close friend of Oprah’s, like Leona Helmsley, whose dog Trouble inherited $12 million, billionaire Oprah is planning on bequeathing her dogs and menagerie of other animals a sum that could easily serve as hefty lottery winnings.

When Oprah passes on, her pets are going to get $30 million for their care. A sum almost impossible for a handful of animals and their care-takers to go through, unless they have a team of experts at their disposal daily.

The $30 million Oprah is said to be leaving her pets is, however, a bargain compared to the $250 million her boyfriend of 21 years, Stedman Graham, supposedly received as a “keep quiet or else” severance package.

Not that any of us can leave our furry and feathered friends $30 million, making plans for their care in case we go first is something we should all do!!

In tribute to her Cocker Spaniel who died last March, Oprah said, “Sophie gave me 13 years of pure unconditional love. She was the true love in my life. In fact, she’s been one of the greatest reasons for me to be a kinder, more gentler person”

Petland Supports Puppy Mills


Maybe you saw Oprah’s show on puppy mills earlier this year, and wondered how this cruelty can persist and who’s responsible.

Today, The Humane Society of the United States released the results of a shocking investigation showing that pet store chain Petland Incorporated is the nation’s largest retail supporter of puppy mills. The cruelty must end – watch our video and take action today.
Our national, eight-month investigation shows that Petland stores in multiple states are marketing dogs from cruel puppy mills to unsuspecting dog buyers. The investigation into Petland stores in Florida, Indiana, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, and other states revealed that many of the puppies sold at these stores came from massive commercial breeders in Missouri and other states in the Midwest where hundreds of breeding dogs are packed into filthy, crowded cages.
Most of the puppies bred at puppy mills are eventually sold over the Internet or through pet stores, including many Petlands in the U.S. The unseen victims are the mother dogs who are forced to live their entire lives behind bars – without exercise, without socialization, without ever being part of a family or even seeing the outside of their cages. 
We are committed to stopping puppy mill cruelty, but we can’t do it without your help. The holiday puppy-buying season is in high gear, so please watch our video and then tell Petland to stop selling puppies.  
Then contact your nearest Petland franchise to tell them to get out of the puppy-selling business.  

Thank you for your commitment to stopping puppy mills and for all that you do for animals.
