What a powerful trailer.
HBO will be airing a new documentary titled Madonna of the Mills, which sheds light on the cruel world of puppy mills in America.
Laura Flynn has rescued over 2,000 dogs from many puppy mills of Lancaster County, PA. In this doc, she exposes the "nasty secret" of America.
"All of those cute puppies that are sold in pet stores come from 'puppy mills.' Their mothers spend their entire lives in tiny, unsanitary cages, never walked, never petted, never doing anything but making puppies . When these dogs can no longer produce litters or money for their owners, they are put to death – stoned, shot, drowned or starved."
She is only allowed to take the dogs who are considered "useless" when they can no longer give birth to puppies.
Producer Kelly Colbert hopes that everyone can view this doc, "especially those still tempted to buy a puppy from a pet store despite the virtual inevitability that the pup was born of suffering, and the fact that buying a puppy mill puppy will condemn the breeding dogs to a lifetime of misery."
The documentary Madonna of the Mills will premiere on HBO2 on Wednesday, August 24. For more information about the film and the efforts behind it, including info on the dogs featured on the film, CLICK HERE.
It's a must-see for anyone with a heart.
