Back to ASPCA
  • Two Legs
  • Four Paws
  • One Cause

My name’s Larry the Dog and I want to tell you about an exciting new adventure I’m em”bark”ing on. As you may know, I have a thing against puppy mills. Simply put, they stink! So, I’ve signed up with Team ASPCA to help spread awareness about this important canine issue, while raising funds to fight against all kinds of animal cruelty.

It’s not going to be easy. I’m a dog used to short walks around the block. But on October 28th, that’s all going to change. I will be joining hundreds of Team ASPCA participants from across the country in running the 2012 Rock ‘n’ Roll Los Angeles Halloween Half Marathon. Sure I get to work out with awesome professional trainers, and I’m super excited to meet new friends. But, most importantly, running for Team ASPCA will allow me to help puppy mill dogs!

The simple truth is most pet store puppies come from puppy mills. The more people who know about this connection and pledge not to buy ANYTHING (including toys, pet food, and kitty litter if cats are your thing) at pet stores that sell puppies, the better off dogs like me will be.

Will you please help me spread awareness about puppy mills and raise crucial funds for the ASPCA by supporting my run? Even a small donation will go a long way in helping the ASPCA fight to end animal cruelty, homelessness and neglect. Woof and thanks!
