Super Bowl Ad Pulled After Animal Welfare Advocates Rally

29 January 2015

US - A pro-puppy mill advert by GoDaddy scheduled to air during the Super Bowl was pulled after animal welfare advocates across the US rallied against it.

“Peddling puppies online is no laughing matter, as most of them come from abusive puppy mills where dogs languish in filthy, cramped cages,” said Wayne Pacelle, President and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States.

“Adopting a homeless dog from an animal shelter or rescue group is the best play you can call.”
