Stars including GINNIFER GOODWIN and MYA are spearheading a new canine charity campaign to stop pet stores selling puppies.
The ladies attended the Stop Puppy Mills Humane Society benefit on Tuesday night (22Sep09) and are speaking out about the practice of selling pups kept in inhumane conditions.
Goodwin is urging Americans to get their puppies from rescue centres.
She tells RadarOnline.com, “There are 10,000 of these places in the United States, selling millions of these dogs every year to customers who are unwittingly buying these pets online and from pet stores.
“The dogs, they’re stacked in crates and they don’t have access to sunlight or running water or veterinary care or love, and, really, if you’re gonna adopt a furry friend into your family, the only answer is truly adopting and going to your local shelter.”
