Oprah: Adopt A Ferret Too

April is Adopt A Ferret Month. There are 39 ferret shelters participating.

"We will be featuring different shelters through out the month on our website so that you can meet the people who have dedicated their lives to making a difference to this little guys. It really takes a special person to work in pet rescue."

"Oprah Winfrey plans to dedicate a show investigating abuses at puppy mills to her cocker spaniel, Sophie, who died last month from kidney failure.

"Sophie gave me 13 years of unconditional love. She was a true love in my life," Winfrey says on the broadcast scheduled to air Friday. (Advance remarks from the show were released Tuesday by Harpo Productions.)

The show features special correspondent Lisa Ling investigating puppy mills, which Ling calls "horrific" and "haunting."

Winfrey says the show is "for anybody anywhere who loves a dog, has ever loved a dog, or just cares about their basic right to humane treatment."

I hope everyone saw the special on puppy mills that Oprah Winfrey did. It was great. If we stop buying from pet shops, then the puppy mills could lose a lot of business and shut down. Ferrets are really cute animals. Never had one, but my one dog reminds me of a ferret because she acts like one.
