The holiday season is upon us, and on many wish lists across the country, one of the items may be a furry friend. To help the public make compassionate choices this shopping season, fitness expert, Jillian Michaels has teamed up with the Humane Society of the United States in their new billboard campaign that encourages consumers to adopt their next pet and avoid puppy mills.

Purchasing dogs from pet shops, “puppy stores,” and flea markets often keep puppy mills in business. Puppy mills have repeatedly been busted for being filthy and inhumane to dogs, putting them at risk for a variety of illnesses as well as flea infestations.

“When I first learned about puppy mills, I was horrified and I knew that I needed to do something,” said Michaels. “Dogs shouldn’t be constantly impregnated, confined and forced to live in their own excrement. I am grateful for the opportunity to help The Humane Society of the United States in its efforts to stop this in our country.”

Starting in December, the billboards will be seen in Florida (Tampa, Miami, West Palm Beach), West Virginia (Charleston, Huntington, Fairmont), and Texas (Houston, Dallas, Canton).

The HSUS encourages anyone looking to provide a forever home for a dog to adopt from a shelter or rescue group. To join Jillian Michaels and the HSUS in combating cruel puppy mills, visit humanesociety.org/puppymills.
