help the pups!

remember that puppy mill that was raided in kennewick earlier this year? those puppies are now looking for new homes! from the seattle humane society, here are three ways you can help the pups:

1) Adopt a dog this weekend to make room for a dog rescued from the puppy mill!

2) Donate to help the Seattle Humane Society save even more orphaned and needy animals' lives and give them the safe shelter they deserve. You can select "Puppy Mill Rescue" if you would like to restrict your gift to help the dogs.

3) Become a Seattle Humane Society volunteer foster home. Contact dogfoster@seattlehumane.org to get started!
