“Sometimes a dog will show up when a person needs one most.

Sometimes a person will show up when a dog needs one most.

Sometimes a dog and a person will find each other at just the right moment,

A moment when they need each other more than either could ever imagine.”


Michaela Munteon


I’ve been writing about the many horrors

Of America’s Puppy Mills for many years

But many people continue to purchase dogs

Little Billy’s story should bring them to tears


And his story is why we should adopt, not shop

Please share it with everyone, this Holiday Season

Tell them not to purchase a puppy, from a pet store

Tell them that dogs who suffer like Billy, are the reason



“It never gets any easier -- walking into a Puppy Mill filled with sick, starving dogs mired in their own filth. Never. It breaks my heart every time.

A few months ago, I rescued a little Chihuahua from a Puppy Mill in North Carolina. I'll never forget the first time that I saw him. His name is Billy.

He had been locked in his cage for so long that the door had rusted shut. It took me a full 20 minutes, but I finally managed to pry it open. What I found inside was heart-shattering.

Billy weighed almost nothing. Even if he had been given food, he was in too much pain to eat -- his jaw and teeth had rotted away. He had a terrible skin condition, and he was having trouble breathing, but when I picked him up, he began wagging his little tail and he soon covered me in kisses.

Used as a breeding dog and then tossed aside when he was past his prime, Billy had spent his entire life -- day after day, year after year -- just wasting away behind those bars. If we hadn’t gotten to him when we did, that cage would have been his tomb.

And yet, after all that, there he was nuzzling, cuddling, and affectionate. He knew I was one of the good guys. I got to be Billy’s hero.

I’ve rescued so many animals from unspeakable conditions with The Humane Society of the United States. Whenever it gets to be too much to bear, I remember the first time I laid eyes on little Billy, and how nothing could break his spirit.

Ed, there are so many dogs... cats… horses... farm animals... and wildlife who need a hero of their own. Thank you for everything you do for animals. Together, we have to continue to build a more humane society for us all.”


Adam Parascandola

Director of Animal Cruelty Response,

The Humane Society of the United States


America’s Animal Shelters Are All Now Overflowing,

With Dogs In Dire Need Of A Home For The Holidays;

We Have To Stop The Profitability Of These Puppy Mills,

For All The Dogs Like Little Billy, We Must Do This Today.


-Please Adopt, Don’t Shop, This Holiday Season-

God Bless You *Mr Ed*
all who are like You!!

Lady Vivian
Next time someone asks for your vote, anyone, this should be the first question on your lips, what are you doing for the poor creatures, when you make law, how are you going to vote, are you willing to put up a bill with your buddies to ask, it be passed into law, a law with teeth, that will protect all creature from the harm some would inflict on them. Bless you, a million times for what you are doing.

A worthy thank you for a man who doesn't give up. Thank you, Ed, for your continued work. And lest we forget, until we as a culture reform the meaning of "success," there will continue to be people like those with the puppy mills whose only concern is "success" as we the people have mercilessly defined it: PROFIT.

Like Annabel, instant tears it just horrifies me
and breaks my heart... I am not a spiteful or mean
soul or one who seeks harm to others, but in my
opinion the soul that locked this poor creature up
needs to be whipped, shot, caged up and starved!


Thank you for sharing this story that is so heart
breaking and continues to go on

Love and Light
