Welcome new member!

We know each of you are working hard in your own communities to put a stop to puppy mills. The challenges faced may vary by state. And members use various tactics in pursuit of their mission.

Please tell us a little bit more about your key challenges, core activities and your reason for joining NPMP. Individual survey responses will not be shared publicly. A summary of all surveys received will be shared on the members-only website.

The more we know about our members, the better we can shape the direction of our coalition.

Thank you,

Betty Stebbins, Executive Director NPMP
