Deputy Paws and the Puppy Mill Cause
By Peggy Race
Illustrations by Mike Motz
Deputy Paws, like thousands of dogs in the United States, was born in a puppy mill.
He didn’t have any freedom to run and play like other dogs get.
He was stuck in a small cage and not looked after properly.
His health could have suffered as a result.
His life might have been shortened, just so someone who didn’t care about him could make money.
In this fully illustrated children’s book, Deputy Paws, we get an idea of what life is like for many dogs who are born in a puppy mill.
It follows his story, from a sad and unhappy pup, to one full of life in his new home where he is loved.
Deputy Paws isn’t just a fun read for young children. It also carries a message of hope for one young dog and an important lesson for us all, about the dangers of puppy mills and how to avoid buying dogs that are sold through them.
It is sure to become a favorite bedtime read for you and your child that is both entertaining and educational.
Deputy Paws and the Puppy Mill Cause is a book with a strong message, written and illustrated in a child friendly and engaging manner.
Read the book, plant your own seed and become a Deputy Paws Defender.

Judy has always had a strong passion for education and working with small children. At the age of 26, she owned and taught at a Montessori-based preschool.

Her desire is to educate people about veganism with a soft touch. Judy's light, humorous approach keeps kids laughing while they are learning how to prepare meals and develop teamwork skills. The goal behind this book and upcoming books is to actively involve children.
