Fan or not, we’ve got to give credit to The Daily Show for tackling the serious issue of puppy mill reform in America, especially given the current debate over the passage of Proposition B in Missouri. Sure, the majority of Missourians voted in favor of tougher state regulations for puppy millsbut opposition to the new set of rules remains fierce, if not also a bit misinformed.
In last week’s Daily Show segment, correspondent Olivia Munn visits Missouri to see firsthand how residents are reacting to the passing of Prop B. Munn speaks with animal welfare leaders, even Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan, who throws his opinion in the ring. But the most startling interview is with Anita Andrews, Director of the Alliance for Truthan organization that heavily opposes the new puppy mill law.
“They’re expecting all the breeders to sit there and pay for exorbitant amounts of care that are not neededlike adequate food, adequate water, and adequate space,” explains Andrews.
With its well-known satiric flare, The Daily Show gets to the heart of the matterpuppy mill reform is needed and those who oppose it…well, we’ll just let you come to your own conclusions.

The holiday season is upon usbut for some, celebration does not come easy. With the devastating effects of the economic downturn, struggling families across our nation are forced to face one of the most difficult decisions of their lifeabandoning their beloved pet.
As millions continue to file for unemployment, many families find they can no longer afford the costs of pet care, while others become evicted from their homes and are unable locate pet-friendly housing. The unlucky ones are left to the streets, but even those in shelters face difficult odds. The harsh reality is, with shelter intake rates on the rise, countless numbers of companion animals face euthanasia in overcrowded sheltersbut we are here to help.
This past year, we were able to provide low cost medical care to more than 144,000 animals, assist in the adoption of over 63,000 homeless pets, and provide more than five million in grant funding to organizations in need. But we’re not done…

Get your motors running, animal lovers! This holiday season, Subaru is once again giving back with the Subaru Share the Love Event. That means you could be helping homeless pets while driving a brand new set of wheels. For every vehicle sold or leased between November 20 and January 3, Subaru will donate $250 to the owner’s charity of choice—one of which is the ASPCA!
It’s no surprise that Subaru owners love their dogs! For the 3rd year in a row, the ASPCA has been selected as one of five charities to participate in the dealership’s holiday year end sales event—raising more than $2.5 million in total donations.
To do our part, we have united Subaru dealers with local animal welfare agencies across the country to jointly host pet adopt-a-thons, collection drives, even holiday photos with Santa Claws. Last year, thanks to these special events, more than 350 animals found forever homes and $28,000 in donations were raised for local animal agencies!
Since there’s no limit to the amount that Subaru is willing to donate, car buyers can help the ASPCA receive upwards of a million dollars (or more!)—with all donations directly impacting our efforts to fight animal cruelty. So, even if you’re not thinking about getting a new car, tell a friend, tell a loved one—tell anyone shopping around that Subaru is worth checking out!
There has never been a better time, a better season or a better reason to buy a Subaru. Visit Subaru today for more information.
So, it’s been several weeks now of watching wacky pet crusader Joey Henry of HelpJoey.com use comedy to raise awareness of pet overpopulation. If you haven’t checked him out yet, Joey’s on a mission to stop cats and dogs from having sex! Sound a little weird? We know!
Sure we had our doubts that Joey’s “stop chasing tail” campaign would actually make a mark in our battle to end pet overpopulation, but people really seem be enjoying it. With a little help, his series of slapstick video escapades could spark a strong online movement to spread the spay/neuter message far and wide! Seeing the impact this lone pet-crusader has made so far, we decided to reach out and offer him our full support.
“I had just stopped two lust-driven labs from doing the sex, when I got the call from the ASPCA—I was so psyched and frankly, surprised, maybe I’m not as crazy as I thought,” says Joey. “Now with the ASPCA’s help, I’ll have the support I need to get a whole army of folks out there helping me stop the humping. With them in our corner, we'll be able to help so many cats and dogs.”
The ASPCA is excited to announce our new partnership with HelpJoey.com and are eager to offer the spay/neuter tools and resources needed to bring this creative campaign to a whole new level.
