Since I just adopted Piper, this is near and dear to my heart. PLEASE take 2 seconds to help STOP PUPPY MILLS!
Pet stores that care about puppies don’t sell them. 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 spending 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. 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 simply by choosing to adopt your next pet from a shelter or rescue, or by only purchasing a dog from a responsible breeder who will show you where your puppy was born and raised. And that’s not all—you can do even more by refusing to buy pet supplies from any store or website that sells puppies. Where you spend your dollars makes a difference. Make a statement when you shop!

This is very near and dear to my heart as well. Until about five years ago, the Walmart parking lot in Bentonville was like a puppy fair every weekend. The city council put a stop to that, as “breeders” from who knows where were coming in from as far as three, four hours away to sell puppies on impulse. Now they’re gone and have to find somewhere else to go. I was so upset a few weeks ago when I saw someone selling beagles from the back of a truck on the highway. To get my dog from a Humane Society two hours away, I had to fill out an application, which included sending photographs of my house, the exterior and the neighborhood, listing three references and having them call our landlord. That is the way every animal should be introduced into a home – not bought off the street, in a store or in the parking lot from who knows where and TO who knows where. Thanks Lori!
