"Friends of mine paid $75 to acquire a Jack Russell terrier (Tucker) from a puppy mill in Ohio. At first he seemed healthy, then fell violently ill several days later. As a friend to the family, I paid over $2,000 for his medical care, which included surgery and six blood transfusions. This care, plus all our prayers, helped make him the happy, sassy 3-year-old lad he is today. When I see him, he pounces on my lap and licks me effusively."
