Humorous video and catchy tune with a serious message: break the cycle of puppy mills. If you buy a puppy online, chances are that puppy came from a puppy mill. Adopt from a local shelter or rescue group, or buy from a reputable breeder. Find out more at sfspca.org/nomills

This video is creepy because puppy mills are creepy. I think that's the point.
I think that person was just trying to be humorous... I won't say that I NEVER watched a reality show, but I agree that they make television something much worse than a boob tube.

Yeah, a "friend made you watch a reality T.V. show" because you are too smart, hip, and all around groovy to have watched one on your own. That's the statement of somebody who watches Bridezilla's and American Idol in secret. Poser.
I am not sure if those commenting have ever seen what goes on behind the scenes to rescue the amount of animals we do because of reckless self centered money making pigs, but start volunteering. I am from SF a nice bubble of a place where dogs are adopted out but I have since moved to Atlanta and its NON STOP TRANSPORT to get these dogs out because the BACK YARD BREEDERS keep BREEDING!! For every dog you buy, 10 are put down! Georgia alone put down over 80,000 dogs last year. GO VOLUNTEER!

Many shelters, including the SF SPCA list available animals on their websites, but they don't sell and ship. A responsible shelter, rescue or breeder will require that you come down to the facility and make the adoption. What this commercial is aiming to accomplish is to educate people that if buying a puppy online is similar to an e-commerce transaction, it is likely a puppy mill or puppy mill broker. Please visit sfspca.org for more information about how you can screen for mills

I've gotten dogs online...because my local shelter (and several local rescue groups) post their available animals, as well as the applications for them, online. I admire what you're trying to do with this, but I don't think that generalizing it to "finding dogs online is bad and wrong!" is helpful. Also, interesting interpretation of the word "humorous". I'd go with "creepy", personally.

YEA! Surprised the heck outta me the first time I saw the commercial on tv but I've seen it a dozen times now and I'm SO glad you're getting the word out. Thank you so much for putting that together !!
kinda creepy, but still a great message!
We have gotten two dogs online - both from Tri Valley Animal Rescue.
The shelter dog is the way to go!
