“After 24 years, the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show has changed sponsors from Pedigree to Purina because the club doesn’t like Pedigree’s very effective “Adopt a Shelter Dog” ad series.” this is the start of a well written ariticle about the decision of the Westminster Dog Show to drop Pedigree because of it’s support of dog rescue and shelter dogs. Wow, we have to say we are not very impressed by this decision.
Westminster Kennel Club is sanctioned by the American Kennel Club and the AKC is very supportive of puppy mills. Every dog that is bred in a puppy mill is registered with the AKC and they get registration fee. They make big bucks from the puppy mills. They evidently don’t care that these are the same dogs dying every day in the shelters.
I don’t know about you but I will not be watching the Westminster Show this year and telling everyone I know why! —Elizabeth
