Watch our exclusive undercover video to learn the dirty secret behind celebrity puppies.
Last summer, Paris Hilton brought home a new Chihuahua and Britney Spears a Yorkie -- both purchased from Pets of Bel Air, L.A.'s pet boutique to the stars.
At Pets of Bel Air, staff members perfume and coif their tiny puppies for sale, creating an illusion of perfection. That illusion fooled Paris, Britney, and many others -- showing that even the rich and famous believe what pet store clerks tell them about the puppies they sell.
Watch our exclusive undercover video exposing the dirty secret behind the puppies sold by Pets of Bel Air.
The HSUS's undercover investigation relealed that many of the puppies sold at Pets of Bel Air come from puppy mills in the Midwest including Arkansas, Kansas, and Oklahoma. At these large-scale factory farm operations, we found hundreds of breeding dogs living in barren wire cages where they are treated like production machines. Some had untreated injuries, were pacing frantically, and were housed in overcrowded cages that reeked of urine.
Each mother dog at these mills is sentenced to a miserable life in a cage so her puppies can be sold at pet stores across the country. In addition to the lifetime of neglect their parents will suffer, the puppies are also much more vulnerable to illnesses and disease due to the conditions in which they were born -- with many falling ill or dying within days or weeks of purchase.
As we celebrate compassion this holiday season, many people will unwittingly support this cruel and inhumane industry when they purchase a puppy from a pet store. Pets of Bel Air is just one of thousands of retail stores and Internet sites that sell puppy mill puppies -- and that's why we need your help.
After you watch our video exposing the truth about the puppies sold by Pets of Bel Air, please share it with your friends and sign our pledge to stop puppy mills. Animal shelters and breed rescue groups are the best sources for dogs -- not pet stores or Internet sites.
Yesterday, as a result of our investigation, local authorities shut down Pets of Bel Air for failing to secure the proper permits.
Thank you for all that you do for animals.

After looking for this for about ten (?!) years, my Google news search has paid off! Hope you like htis as much as I did back in 1997 at the Ann Arbor Film Festival.
“NY (prononcez “Nih”) est un essai passionnant qui nous parle sur le ton de l’ironie post-moderne de notre civilisation pour mieux en révèler, à travers le prisme déformant du surréalisme, les fractures et contradictions au détour d’une vertigineuse réflexion qui amène celui qui s’y abandonne au bord de l’angoissant abîme de la pensée absurdiste – pour finalement mieux l’y pousser”.
(12-06) 06:38 PST SAN LEANDRO -- (12-06) 09:28 PST SAN LEANDRO - A pedestrian who was struck and killed by an Amtrak train in San Leandro while apparently absorbed in a cell phone call has been identified as 16-year-old Daniel Segundo.
Segundo, a San Leandro resident, walked around a lowered crossing gate and onto the tracks before being hit at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday by a northbound Capitol Corridor train at the Alvarado Street crossing, about 8 miles south of the Oakland station, authorities said.
The circumstances of Segundo's death remain under investigation. None of the 20 passengers or crew aboard the train was injured.
Crew members aboard the Sacramento-bound train told authorities they saw Segundo talking on the cell phone before he was struck and that the warning lights and gates at the crossing were functioning properly.
I had a "duh" moment yesterday after I had cut my hands trying to open a Logitech optical mouse from its death-to-the-theives blister pack. My home scissors weren't up to cutting the thick plastic, and I had to use my hands after a while. THEN, my eyes fell upon the can opener (a standard rotary one) sitting innocently in the drawer. I used that to open the next blister pack, and man, was that a breeze!
