Washington D.C. – Today Animal Rescue Corps (ARC), an international animal protection organization whose mission includes bringing an end to animal suffering through direct and compassionate action, is launching a puppy mill awareness initiative called “Educate To End Puppy Mills” with the release of a public service announcement (PSA) featuring Grammy Award winner and animal advocate Sheryl Crow.  Three versions of the End Puppy Mills PSA have been distributed to 500 cable outlets and will begin airing this month.  The PSA is also available to view online at www.animalrescuecorps.org.

Therefore, puppy mill dogs suffer from a multitude of social, emotional, and physical conditions.
