It turns out that a kiddie beauty pageant company, Heavenly Angels and Dreamland Divas has decided to give out puppies as the prizes to the winners of a competition in Pennsylvania next weekend.
Other than this being a crazy idea, Pennsylvania law states that giving away live animals as prizes is illegal!
Also, puppies need a lot of attention and care, and some of those winners may not be able to care for these puppies. Dogs that are given out to people who never really wanted them are often turned over to shelters, or worse abandoned and end up homeless.
Maybe this kiddie pageant coordinator should pick a different prize? What do U think?
