Oprah, is there anything she can't do?

On today's Pre-Oscar show, Oprah tacked on a short segment of these adorable yorkie puppies, who are desperately in need of homes. Along with 90 others, these sweet youngsters were rescued from a puppy mill by the Humane Society of Missouri, who described the conditions of the mill as some of the most horrific they had ever seen. This should say a lot. Living in urine and feces soaked 2x2 cages, some of the rescued pups were found with fur so matted that it had actually bound their limbs. For some particularly unlucky souls, the matte cut blood flow to the bones, permanently disabling them. This honestly pushes the limits of my comprehension.

If you are able to adopt a puppy, or care about animal welfare, I strongly encourage you to visit Oprah's website to learn more.

Thank you, Oprah, for once again brining much needed attention to animals, and for using your public forum so responsibly.
