WTJM-TV Investigative Reports on Puppy Mills


Today's TMJ-4 in Milwaukee

WTMJ-4, an NBC affiliate in Milwaukee, has been helping us try to expose the conditions at these direct seller "puppy farms" for many years. These conditions were first reported by Milwaukee's WTMJ-4 news anchor Mike Jacobs in a November 23, 1999 broadcast titled, "Inside a Puppy Farm", the transcript and video of which they have graciously allowed us to use on our website since its inception.

Recently, with their April multi-part exposé on Wisconsin puppy mills, they and their viewers have brought our cause to the attention of our legislators once again!
