Arizona's Puppy Mill Pipeline
Show Notes

Arizona has all the the hallmarks of a typical puppy mill pipeline state: one large puppy mill peddler with big money to fight humane laws, lots of smaller dealers trucking in puppy mill puppies under the radar, lack of enforcement, and a community in need of educational efforts.  There's a lot of work to be done in Arizona, but we're never going to stop fighting and we need YOUR help!  
Tune in this week to learn all about Arizona's puppy mill pipeline and find out what you can do to stop it!
