Stop the deaths of millions of companion animals - YOU can make this change!

    1. Petition by

      Amy Vachon

      Plainsboro, NJ

Every year, over 5 million companion animals in the U.S. are euthanized (humanely and inhumanly) simply because they were bred without a home to go to. One animal bought from a store is one animal killed at a shelter. We can make a difference!

Across Canada there is a movement to try to restrict sales from puppy mills.  Such a simple concept!  Tell your law makers to a law preventing the sale of bred animals in Pet Shops!  Only sell animals from local shelters, rescues, and owner surrenders (no fees acepted).

Let us join together to reach out to our local, state, and federal legislators to help make this same change across the U.S.

Sign this petition and reach out to your local legislators to let them know this is a change you want to see.

      It should illegal to run Puppy farms/mills and I totally agree with this Petition that there should be a ban on Pet shops selling Dogs and Cats.There are more than enough innocent dogs and cats in shelters that need loving homes. In addition any breeder, should not be able to sell puppies and kittens. This is one of the best practical Petitions I have read in a long time that with Government support not just in the USA but other countries has the potential to save millions of Animals from being killed. Well done Amy, please sign this Petition.

      These breeding facilities are inhumane hell holes. They fill no need. Animals are housed in unbearable conditions and severely inbred, which causes untold pain, agony and suffering for the animals and their humans. In addition to the pain and problems that are directly attributable to this horrible practice is the secondary consequence of perfectly healthy and deserving animals go without a forever home or are put down. Please, put an end to "puppy mills".
