Actress Demi Moore, who has more than 3.6 million Twitter followers, has been praised for her recent tweet about a campaign against the upkeep of puppy mills, according to On The Red Carpet.
Moore’s tweet reads, “Help spread the word about Puppy-Mills. Millions of dogs desperately need our help!”
A billboard in Los Angeles features Demi Moore, 48, and her husband, Ashton Kutcher, 33, telling their fans, via Twitter, to visit the website www.dogsinacage.com. This site shows the “horrors of factory farming man’s best friend.”
The couple often uses Twitter to promote humanitarian causes for their own charity, The Demi and Ashton Foundation.
A number of animal activist and rights groups have begged for an end to puppy mills–a place where dogs are bred and raised under inhumane circumstances before being sold.
The Pennsylvania Main Line Animal Rescue group is a sponsor of the “dogs in a cage” campaign. The advocate for their group is Carol Leifer, a comedian. She used her connections to reach out to Moore and Kutcher earlier in June.
The founder of the Main Line Animal Rescue, Bill Smith, made a statement about Moore’s supportive action. “The Tweet was met with elation throughout the animal welfare community, and Moore was praised for her commitment to the humane treatment of breeding dogs in factory farms. Demi Moore gives a voice to the voiceless and uses her celebrity to make the world a better place,” On The Red Carpet reports.
