Federal Elected Officials - No more pet stores that sell puppies!!!

Many pet stores with cute puppies for sale will tell you that they don't get their puppies from puppy mills. They'll say their puppies are all from "USDA licensed breeders." - Most pet shop puppies come from puppy mills, and so do most dogs sold over the Internet. Pet shop puppies are separated from their mother at as young as six weeks of age. The health of the puppies is not always guaranteed - Please take the pledge to stop Puppy Steps and Furry Babies Pet Stores from selling puppies. One sick puppy purchased from the store is one puppy too many. Please help to stop the cycle of pet stores and puppy mills.

    1. Seems like people that give away free puppies don't like this petition

      Stacey Kranz
      Petition Organizer

      Every single person that has a "Free Puppies" ad on craigslist has reported me so that my Petition was removed. Seems fishy? That's because it is - remember a puppy mill does not have to have 400 dogs to be a puppy mill, they can be right in our back yards!

    3. Progress has been made but we all must continue

      Stacey Kranz
      Petition Organizer

      We are making progress, but we still have a long way to go to help save one of the most loyal and trustworthy companions most of us will ever know. Please continue to pass this petition on to everyone you know and everyone they know. I have heard so many sad stories about dogs that have been rescued from those deplorable conditions, many of them unable to survive - It's a shame in our "civilized" society that something as cruel as puppy mills is happening right in our back yards.

      We are up to 250 signatures, great work everyone!!! Please pass this along to all of your friends and family. We are the only voice for the female dogs, the mothers of the puppies sold in pet stores. The mothers spend their entire "breeding" life in a cage not much bigger than themselves. They never get to feel the touch, love and warmth of a human. The never experience a walk, playing catch, or running around. How sad. How very sad, that here in this day and age, we have allowed this to go on in our back yards. Please help today, your signature makes all the difference in the world.
