What Can You Do To Help Stop Puppy Mills?

Ruby’s Love Letter Legacy in Canada

Ruby's Love Letter Legacy
Ruby’s Love Letter Legacy is a National Letter Writing Campaign to STOP PUPPY MILLS in Canada! This campaign has been launched by Ontario author Mary Giuffre and her husband Paul Clark, who saved a puppy named Ruby from a Canadian Puppy Mill.

Puppy mills are inhumane breeding facilities where the focus is on profit rather than the well-being of the dogs.   There is very little concern for the health of the dogs breeding and the puppies they produce. The mothers and puppies are often neglected, left starving and sick, without medical care. We recommend considering adoption but if you buy a puppy, always research the breed and the breeder.

Ruby’s Story and photos Courtesy of Mary and Paul:

“On April 19, 2012 a tiny puppy mill survivor we named ‘Ruby’ changed our lives forever. Her health was seriously compromised by the horrible effects of six caged years and our time together passed much too quickly. Despite best efforts Ruby took her place among the Angels on March 10, 2014.

So Ruby’s life was not lived in vain, we have made a commitment to educate everyone we meet about the horror of puppy mills. We started with a kids’ book called ‘Angel in a Dog Suit’ to introduce families to these inhumane dog breeding farms, in the gentlest way possible.

OUR NEXT STEP is to continue to nudge our government officials through letter writing campaigns and not let up until there are NO MORE PUPPY MILLS in Canada!”

“A sweeter being than Ruby has not graced the planet and our plan is to let her example lead the way. ‘Ruby’s Love Letter Legacy’ will deliver a serious message in a peaceful way, so we believe February 14th is the perfect day to spread the word. Imagine a FLOOD of RED ENVELOPES reaching our government officials around Valentine’s Day every year! AND if we keep on top of what is coming up in each province, we can also do mail blasts to individual governments, when we know and issue needs addressing. ”
