Scarlett O'Hara was adopted by Bridgett Rowley after she was rescued from a puppy mill in NC. Scarlett lived with more than 100 other dogs in a small area. These animals were barely fed, lived in their own waste and received little to no veterinary care.
Bridgett began researching puppy mills after she brought Scarlett home. She discovered that North Carolina and other States did not have puppy mill legislation in place to protect these animals. The owners of Scarlett's puppy mill only received probation.
Bridgett started a grassroots movement to create awareness around the lack of puppy mill legislation. She is the liaison between the constituents and politicians. Bridgett and the committee at Canines & Couture disseminate information about the Puppy Mill bill and it's current status. North Carolina currently does not have laws in place that enforce Puppy Mills. Canines & Couture is committed to working hard to help create awareness around the puppy mill problem and the importance of animal adoption.
