If you have a blog like mine, you know that there will be a lot of spam comments. Most of them get filtered out by Wordpress, but every once in a while, I’ll find someone advertising something on my blog.

Today Molly came across some Facebook comments that drove her crazy. As some of you may know, she volunteers for an organization called Bailing Out Benji, who spreads awareness about puppy mills.

Imagine adding an adorable puppy into your family. Even after only a short time together, you quickly bond. But then, imagine finding out that your puppy doesn’t officially belong to you, but instead, you had been tricked into leasing them. This might sound outrageous, but the concept of pet leasing is a real thing, and it’s not okay. (Click title to read more!)

I am happy to announce that the USDA has finally made some changes to their requirements! Sadly, even puppy mill breeders can have a USDA license because the restrictions are not very detailed and they are rarely enforced. Hopefully, these new rules can change that and help save more dogs. (Click title to read more!)
