By giving a voice to the voiceless, Demi Moore has acquired the admiration of animal activists for raising awareness about puppy mills, by sending a message through her popular Twitter account.

The 48-year-old actress has 3.6 million followers on the social networking site, making her the perfect candidate to spread the word on the anti-puppy mill campaign.

A billboard in Los Angeles from, asked Moore and her husband Ashton Kutcher to tweet to their fans and spread the message about the campaign.

On June 2 Demi Moore took to her Twitter account and said: "Help spread the word about Puppy Mills-Millions of Dogs desperately need our help!" exactly as displayed on the billboard.

Animal rights groups have been fighting to have puppy mills banned for quite some time as they are facilities where dogs are bred and housed in what are said to be harmful and inhumane conditions until they are sold.

"The Tweet was met with elation throughout the animal welfare community and Miss Moore was praised for her commitment to the humane treatment of breeding dogs in factory farms," one of the campaign's sponsors, the Pennsylvania-based Main Line Animal Rescue, said in a recent statement.

No message supporting the cause was found on Kutcher’s Twitter account as of June 22, but the campaign directors insist that the famous pair use their power to help the dogs in need.
The website has a message directed to the celebrity couple as well, saying: “Ashton Kutcher & Demi Moore - please Tweet your followers and tell them about puppy mills. Ask them to visit this site or any web site explaining the horrors of factory farming man's best friend.”

It then listed the reasons they are asking the humanitarian couple for help saying that the couple is known to have five rescued dogs, are both on the Top Ten list of celebrities on Twitter and have huge followings, and lastly, they “seem like nice people with strong social consciences and obviously want to make the world a better place.”

Like Moore, other famous Twitter users should re-tweet this heart-wrenching message to also utilize their celebrity status to promote causes that benefit the greater good of the world.
