Over the past year, the subject of puppy mills -- and the story of a puppy mill rescue -- sparked passionate dialogue on Riverhead Patch.

We took a look on YouTube and found this video posted by the Kent Animal Shelter, when the organization joined in a nationwide effort to put an end to puppy mills.

Watch the video and let us know what you think can be done.

Two reasons why anti puppy mill campaigns are not successful; animal activists and indifferent public. The majority of the public just do not have enough motivation to support for this cause, but the bigger reason for failure is animal activists ideological pursuit of complete eradication of pet breeding. Few years ago, Angie's List dedicated the last page of their monthly magazine to how to be a better dog buyer. It encouraged adoption/rescue but for those who opt to purchase from breeders, it told people to always check the breeder facility, meaning avoid buying dogs from online and retail stores. However this does not sit well with many animal activists because the message include the buying option. Ideologically driven, these are folks who outspokenly against meat consumption yet also against the HSUS Meatless Monday program. What we need is take on what works, not what is felt right. We animal activists must stop indulging our emotions, set aside ideologic differences, and support the most feasible action for something, rather than nothing. The solution is launching a national campaign to promote rescue and check the breeder facility before buying. Now the hardest part; Having the leaders of animal rescues, vegans, animal action communities get on board. Their resistance will be more fierce than the indifferent public. That IS THE PROBLEM.
