Show Notes

On this week's episode we discuss the viral Gingerich puppy mill case and the effect it has had on young people learning about puppy mills for the first time on TikTok.  
Learn why typical internet "cancelling" tactics won't work on this puppy mill breeder and tune in as we discuss the advocacy actions that WILL work to hold horrible puppy mill breeders accountable for the laws they break.
As internet activism becomes the norm, we remind our listeners that there are people on the other end of your computer screen. 
Be kind, and help us create change with compassion and integrity in the forefront!

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.
