Nancy Halpern was quoted in The StarPhoenix article “Time for Questions About Dog Rescue.” Full text can be found in the December 12, 2014, issue, but a synopsis is below.

Many reputable small breeders have been squeezed by animal rights activist campaigns that target commercial dog breeding and create the perception that only sales from animal shelters and rescue groups are acceptable.

This can lead to “retail rescue” where the demand for dogs through rescue channels can result in animals being imported, sometimes from uncertain, unethical and commercial “puppy mills” explained Nancy Halpern.
