Pet stores sell dogs from puppy mills. Do not support abuse and cruelty. No reputable breeder would ever put their dogs in a store to be sold to anyone with a visa card. The pet stores are lying when they say they use private breeders and they get away with all the lies. We put down over 4 million companion animals every year in our country. Support adoption and rescue!  Visit www.caps-web.org for more information on puppy mills and pet shops.

      Puppy mills disgust me. As a rescue volunteer and foster family for dogs, the WORST cases of abuse are from Puppy Mills. If NO ONE buys the puppies then the mills go out of business! It's pretty simple.

      Adoption saves lives. Pet stores selling puppies and kittens make it all too easy to "buy" that cute little furball without knowing the time and commitment required. The employees know little if anything about the different breeds and their traits and needs. A reputable breeder will. AND a reputable breeder will expect anyone who is interested to come and go a few times before taking the puppy or kitten home. That way you can spend time with the animal as well as take a step back to see if you really are making the right choice.

      Please! There are way too many lonely, unwanted animals out there. People need to realize that there are more than enough pets at their local shelters and rescues.

      For every cute puppy in pet store, the parents are back at the puppy mill living in nightmarish conditions that no living creature should have to endure. For every puppy sold, more have to be born to the parent dogs. There are many reported sick puppies that have been bought from pet stores, leaving the owner with the bills and heart break. Please don't shop for your next friend, adopt! Be part of the solution!
