Double coverage

is a good idea in this case. And the cited article makes an additional point (beyond the ironic juxtaposition of "be nice to puppies/be cruel to humans") of the strange concerted PR.

Even if the DAG had competent PR people, marketing can't polish the turd of his administration's actions.

Marketing technique adapted for image management

The "make 'em say aww" approach in product marketing is hugely successful, and it appears McCrory's team is trying to use the rescue dog/puppy mill issue to repair the DAG's dwindling approval ratings. The sad part is, it will probably work, to a certain extent.
