Right now, the ASPCA is on the ground in Kentucky rescuing dozens of dogs from an overrun puppy mill. The dogs were discovered living in filthy conditions with little to no protection from extreme weather. Unfortunately, puppy mills like this are still legal across the country. And that’s just not right!
What can you do to help? Spread the word to all your friends that puppy mills are bad places. You can also enter to win one of our special ASPCA Puppy Mill Advocacy Kits! Simply visit our online form, and tell us why you think puppy mills are bad. You could win the following items:
ASPCA Puppy Mill Message Tote
ASPCA Puppy Mill Message Tee
10 ASPCA Orange Wristbands to share with your friends

Every year, the ASPCA creates a top-quality wall calendar that we give out to our friends and supporters. These calendars feature ASPCA team members and their adopted pets—and around the office, competition to make it into the calendar is pretty steep!
We're putting our 2014 calendar together right now, and staffers representing all 12 months of the year have been photographed with their furry friends. There's only one big decision left to make, and we’re leaving the answer up to you: Who should grace the calendar’s cover?
We've narrowed down the field to four contenders. Check out the photos that are in the running, read a little about the sweet, adopted subjects, and then cast your vote for our 2014 Cover Dog or Cat. The pet whose photo gets the most votes will have his or her face in homes all over America!
