Fairfax, VA *we need your help to make this a successthe biggest and best<br><br>
*THIS COMING* *SATURDAY*, *December 19th, 1-3pm*.<br><br><br><br>
We know the holiday season is hectic and everyone has a to-do list a mile<br><br>
long, but if you could donate just two hours of your time to spread the word<br><br>
about puppy mills, this pre-holiday demonstration is the time to do it.<br><br>

you know we need a huge turn-out and this is a great opportunity to have<br><br>
our message heard.<br><br><br><br>
Annually, the highest percentage of puppies are purchased during the<br><br>
holidays. Please come join us in asking Petland to stop selling puppies and<br><br>
support shelter adoptions instead.<br><br>

(End of HSUS alert)<br><br><br><br>
* *<br><br><br><br>
*Additional info: In spite of all the recent well-deserved bad publicity,<br><br>
our local Fairfax Petland is still getting puppies from puppy mill brokers<br><br>
Hunte Corp. and Perfect Puppies. *<br><br><br><br>
* *<br><br><br><br>
*Huntes August 5, 2008 inspection report showed NUMEROUS violations of the<br><br>
USDAs extremely minimal space requirements. *<br><br><br><br>
* *<br><br><br><br>
*An inspection report for Perfect Puppies showed that in 2008, they obtained<br><br>
approximately 516 puppies from hobby breeders, while in reality these<br><br>
breeders had more than 3 breeding female dogs and were operating illegally,<br><br>
without licenses or inspections. *<br><br><br><br>
* *<br><br><br><br>
*Petland gets puppies from PUPPY MILLS. So please come on out to the Fairfax<br><br>
Petland this Saturday and encourage people to boycott Petland and adopt a<br><br>
homeless animal instead. Thanks!*<br></div>
