This show will be tough for a lot of people to take. I've been working rescue for almost 7 years now and I KNOW it will hard for ME to take. But this is something that's been swept under the rug for far too long in this country, and these exploited dogs could not ask for a better voice than that of Oprah Winfrey. While I may disagree with her on some things (politics in particular), let's face it...she's incredibly influential and has the power to make some desperately needed changes in the world of puppy milling and brokering.
People say to me all the time, "I don't know how you do it" and "I don't think I could do what you do." Thing is, when you know the truth, when you know the horrors that these animals endure at the hands of greedy people...how can I just sit here idle? What I hope people take away from this show is that you don't have to be on the front lines to help. Just be aware and talk to people...educate yourself and others on where exactly those cute little pet store puppies come from. Sometimes not being a part of the problem is the easiest way to be part of the solution.
Don't miss OPRAH on Friday 4/4. You'll never be the same.
