According to an article in today's Lancaster Intelligencer Journal,Oprah became aware of Lancaster County puppymills becasue Bill Smith of Main Line Animal Rescue put up a $10000 billboard 4 blocks from her office requesting that she cover this topic on her show.

According to Oprah's staff member, Lisa Ling who participated in filming these operations: " I had no idea how horrific they are- it's really haunting- I felt like I was crying two days after I returned because it's a really, really scary sight"

"We went to a pet store, then traced the dog back to the mill it came from- that's the whole theme of the show- it will drive home a point people don't want to acknowledge"

" On the show, Winfrey shook her fists and said "This is just the beginning" Smith said "she loves animals, I think she's going to get invovlved in this issue"

(The show airs today, Friday April 4th at 4pm)
