Yesterday, we talked with Sarah Little, Manager of Admissions and Animal Healthcare at Wayside Waifs in Kansas City. She spoke about the medical issues often seen in puppy mill animals.
Today, we feature an interview with Kathy Basset, Wayside Waif's Canine Advocate. Kathy talks about the emotional trauma inflicted by puppy mills. The interview is four and a half minutes long - and we hope you find it as educational as we did:
