Find out why our fight in Illinois is not over and what we (and you!) can do about it!

Americans are used to being on the lookout for a scam, but authorities are warning of a new kind of fraud. Puppy Kingpin shines a spotlight on Jolyn Noethe, a secretive businesswoman from Iowa who is accused of laundering puppies much like drug money. Investigative reporter Alex Schuman exposes the scheme and an underground part of the industry bringing us the pets we love.

From Neon Hum Media and Sony Music Entertainment. Smoke Screen: Puppy Kingpin is available June 16th.
