Pet stores that care about puppies don't sell them (unless the store is a re-homing shelter for rescued dogs). That's because the majority of pet stores that sell puppies carry dogs from cruel and inhumane puppy mills.
Puppy mills are like dog-making factories with the mother dogs spend their entire lives in cramped cages or kennels with little or no personal attention or quality of life. When the mother and father dogs can no longer breed, they are discarded or killed using barbaric means. Consumers who purchase puppies from pet stores or over the Internet without seeing a breeder's home firsthand are often unknowingly supporting this cruel industry.
Help stop this cycle of cruelty by:
1. Choosing not to buy your next pet from a pet store or Internet site.
2. Refusing to buy supplies from any pet store or Internet site that sells puppies.
3. Always considering adoption of rescued animals from animal shelters first.
