BFTB NETWoof News September 19, 2016

Bentley: “Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News for the week of September 19, 2016. This is where we fetch the good news for you. Today’s reports center on some really important events that are taking place this week. We would love for you to share these with your friends or on your blogs. Pierre, what is up first?”
BFTB NETWoof News top story about Puppy Mills
Pierre: Let’s start with today. It is Puppy Mill Awareness Day. Most of you have heard about puppy mills but they are still being operated all over the country. Dogs are used solely for breeding purposes. They are kept in wire cages, never get to see the vet, live in filthy cages, and when they can no longer have babies every six months, they are killed. I know, it gives me the chills too. Those cute puppies in the pet stores or at the flea markets are usually puppy mill pups. Please do your part by never buying a puppy from a backyard puppy mill breeder. The folks behind Puppy Mill Day do a fabulous job in rescuing and rehabilitating puppy mill dogs. You can also learn about this year’s 1-800-PetMeds 2016 Change A Pet’s Life winner Regina, an English Bulldog. Her story is one of hope and change that you will enjoy.”
BFTB NETWoof News with Pauley Perrette for #RememberMeThursday
Bentley: “In our opinion, puppy mills should be outlawed as a clear form of animal abuse. This week also celebrates Remember Me Thursday. We participate each year in remembering Miss Gitty, a rescue cat that left big paw prints on my Mom’s heart. She lived to be 20+ years old and is the last cat in our family. Please join us this Thursday, September 22nd as we get the entire world talking about pet adoption. You can follow #RememberTheRescue and connect with animal advocates and celebrities. There are some famous people lending their voice as Celebrity Human Luminaries that might see your story. Share the Remember Me Thursday video to honor those animals that couldn’t wait for their forever homes. Light a candle in their honor and share some of the local pets in shelters around your area. It takes all of us to shine the light on pet adoption. Did I mention that you can win $2,000 for your favorite rescue?”
BFTB NETWoof News announces winners of Dr Harvey's Oracle
Pierre: “It always makes me proud to take part in sharing an adoptable pet’s story. Those have been some serious stories but we feel it is important to get our amazing audience involved in making a difference. Speaking of amazing people, we have our winners of Dr. Harvey’s 3 lb. bags of Oracle. Our amazing winners are Joy S., Janet K., and Amelia A. Their dogs are going to fall in love with Dr. Harvey’s. We know because we are ambassadors for the company. Next, we have our lovely and talented Weather Lab, Paisley.”
Paisley: “Thanks, boys. We welcome fall in this Thursday too so it is certainly an exciting week. We are ready for some cooler temperatures but here on the bayou, it will still be at least another month. When the weather begins to change, it usually means rain and this week is no exception. There will be scattered storms across the Great Plains, in the northern states, and Florida. The west coast will be sunny and the southwest will also postpone any thought of cooler temperatures. That about covers our forecast; Bentley. Of course, we always urge everyone to tune into their local weather stations in the event of inclement weather.”

Bentley: “Good job, Paisley. This week is going to be a lot of fun on the Bayou so we hope that y'all stop by each day. We hope that your week is terrific and remind you to grab yourself some happy.”

  5. That's a very good cause! Thanks for telling us about it.

  6. Great news ! Puppy mills are an awful business, we wish they are banned. Purrs

  7. Thank you for telling everyone about Puppy Mill Awareness Day and sharing Regina's story! Hopefully as more and more people talk about puppy mills, people will learn the sad truth and will choose not to support them by buying puppy mill dogs!

  8. We despise puppy mills! We hope that one day they will all be banned!

  11. Pawesome blog post!! Thanks for sharing this message. I believe puppy mills should all be abolished & more animal cruelty charges made. We need stricter laws but more importantly much more enforcement of these laws!!

  12. Yes we do need stricter laws for puppy mills.

  15. Puppy mills are a scourge. Thank you for the reminder about the awareness day.

  16. Having adopted a puppy mill dog just last week, we are doing our best to spread the word about the abject horribleness of these operations. Paws crossed more progress can be made so pets like Regina and Elsa won't have to suffer years of abuse before finding their safe loving 'furever' homes. ღ

  17. Thanks, didn't know there was a puppy mill awareness day.


I'd love to hear from you! Bark back!
