Exclamation [News] TV alert: ABC's 'Nightline' investigates puppy mills - Friday night

Orlando Sentinel - TV alert: ABC's 'Nightline' investigates puppy mills

TV alert: ABC's 'Nightline' investigates puppy mills
posted by Karen Saunders on Mar 26, 2009 5:41:25 PM

From the mailbox:

Well friends, once again, the cat is out of the bag -- or should we say the dog out of the hutch! This Friday night (March 27), ABC's Nightline will investigate puppy mills. ABC correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi and investigators from Nightline travel the byways and back roads of Lancaster County, Pa., visiting numerous puppy mills and filming Main Line Animal Rescue's volunteers as they rescue breeding dogs and puppies from Lancaster County's notorious Amish commercial breeding facilities. This promises to be a very special program.

If you are involved in rescue, advocate on behalf of the millions of puppy mill dogs interned in our nation's commercial dog breeding facilities, or if you just simply love animals, you will not want to miss this. Sharyn Alfonsi interviewed, on camera, an Amish breeder while touring his facility -- a first for network television. With approximately 500 dogs housed on his property, this commercial breeder speaks openly about an industry cloaked in secrecy and suspicion -- the cruel factory farming of man's best friend.

PLEASE tell your friends, your family, your co-workers to watch Nightline at 11:35 p.m. (ET) Friday. Please take the time to forward this to all the rescues, shelters and legislators in your area. It has been almost a year since Oprah Winfrey's puppy mill show aired. That program received the highest viewer response of any Oprah show in years. Now we need to spread the word about this very special Nightline. Only by educating as many people as we can, will we be able to help these animals. And after you watch the program, please don't hesitate to contact ABC and Nightline to thank them for casting such a strong light on the plight of our nation's puppy mill dogs.

Bill Smith, Main Line Animal Rescue

Note: Friday's airing of Nightline's investigation of puppy mills is subject to breaking news. If for any reason it is not shown, it will air the beginning of next week. Please check listings for your area.

FYI: for whoever might be interested. Nightline tonight is also doing an interesting panel discussion on whether Satan exists

I have no problem with cross posting - but I just watched Nightline & they promo-ed a different topic for tomorrow night I'm going to try and do some more searching. I had checked their website before I even posted this tonight - and I couldn't find anything about Friday's show.

I follow them on Twitter - so maybe I'll just Twitter Nightline!

Everything that says it on tonight does not link back to the Nightline website - no one has responded to me on Twitter. I even tried to see if it is really 20/20 that is doing the report, but I can't find it there anywhere. I hope it is not an Internet hoax. But I do know sometimes they plan to air something, then it gets pushed back a few days because of bigger, pressing news

I just found this online

LancasterOnline.com:News:County kennels focus of 'Nightline' piece


Intelligencer Journal
Published: Mar 27, 2009
01:12 EST


By SUSAN E. LINDT, Staff Writer

Word has it Lancaster County is about to get a lot of national exposure but not the good kind.

ABC's "Nightline" plans to air footage shot inside some of Lancaster County's commercial breeding kennels on a segment about the industry.

Bill Smith, founder of Chester County's Main Line Animal Rescue, confirmed in an e-mail Wednesday that ABC News correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi and a crew filmed commercial breeding kennels in Lancaster and Berks counties over recent weeks for a segment expected to air tonight at 11:35 during "Nightline."

Smith said the segment has been bumped from recent "Nightline" episodes for more timely news, and it could be bumped again and then be aired next week.

It was just a year ago when Smith's persistence landed Lancaster County's commercial breeding industry on an even bigger teary-eyed platform Oprah Winfrey's daily television talk show, which is watched weekly by an estimated 49 million Americans and by viewers in 117 countries from Saudi Arabia to Zimbabwe.

After that show aired, People magazine published a feature article focusing on the industry.

But the "Nightline" segment has something even Oprah and People didn't an on-camera interview with an Amish breeder operating one of the largest categories of kennels allowed by state law.

"(Alfonsi) interviewed, on camera, an Amish breeder while touring his facility a first for network television," Smith wrote in his e-mail. "With approximately 500 dogs housed on his property, this commercial breeder speaks openly about an industry cloaked in secrecy and suspicion the cruel factory farming of man's best friend."

The "Nightline" segment won't have the tear-jerking personal tributes Winfrey included to her own dogs that had county residents reaching for Kleenex last year. But Smith's mother, Helen Smith, who volunteers at MLAR, said it will educate an entirely different population about the county's commercial dog-breeding industry.

Helen Smith said she hasn't seen the segment but that her son used his connections to gain the film crew to several area kennels. The last time Bill Smith did that, every Winfrey fan with a Fido seemed sicced on Lancaster's thriving breeding industry.

"We're curious to see what 'Nightline' comes up with," she said. "We gave them everything they asked for and then some."

If "Nightline" isn't your speed, Animal Planet will air "Puppy Mills: Exposed," a special edition of "Animal Cops: Philadelphia" at 10 p.m. April 27. That show features footage from the well-publicized July 17 raid on Limestone Kennel in Chester County.

Helen Smith said more publicity is likely in the works.
"Ever since the 'Oprah!' show and the article in People magazine, all kinds of groups contact us for interviews," she said.

Dear MassFed Club Delegates, Alternates, Secretaries,

***Please cross-post to your breed, club and dog show lists***
The American Kennel Club would like to correct some misinformation that is
circulating within the fancy. We would appreciate your assistance in spreading
the word about the facts on this issue.

The AKC is aware that NIGHTLINE, which airs on ABC, is pursuing a story on
canine health, including breeding. The AKC welcomes all constructive dialogue
about the sport and on ways to improve the health of dogs. However, all
indications are that the story will not be a fair and balanced look at the issues.
With the guidance of our advisors, the AKC declined to participate but
instead provided NIGHTLINE with an official statement:

The American Kennel Club is the nations leading not-for-profit
organization devoted to canine health, breeding and responsible dog ownership. The AKC
s breeding policies and high ethical standards have made us the most widely
respected registry in the world. Each year, the AKC performs approximately
5,000 kennel and breeder inspections to ensure the proper care and conditions of
dogs and has led the charge in regards to advancing canine health, including
founding the AKC Canine Health Foundation in 1995. Since that time, $22
million has been given to more than 500 research projects at 74 vet schools and
research institutes worldwide to improve the health of all dogs.
It has also come to our attention that some individual AKC constituents have
been approached for interviews or may be approached at dog shows. In this
event we recommend politely declining the interview and referring their
requests to the AKCs Communications dept at _communications@akc.org_
(mailto:communications@akc.org) or 212-696-8343.

You may also direct those interested in this topic to _www.akcdoghealth.com_
(American Kennel Club - AKC Canine Health Resource Center) for pertinent information.
