To Ban selling Cats and Dogs in pet stores

      Denver, CO

THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE ADOPTING OR RESCUING HOMELESS DOGS/CATS!
Most pet stores get their puppies from puppy mills, which are not healthy and very wrong places. Not to mention puppies who need to run are stuck in a store for a big portion of their lives. Day and night they are living in a tiny cage indoors and rarely see sunlight when they are being sold. They say they get them from breeders, yet puppy mills can be considered "legit" breeders; but at the end of the day the cute puppies you are seeing can be inbred, and they in most cases come from very much abused parents. I'm not accusing any certain pet store, but I do believe it's wrong to keep dogs inside for a very long period of time. For an example, Siberian Huskies absolutely NEED play time and every time I've been in to one I see these huskies laying their depressed or running in circles; you can't keep a dog locked up like that. Not to mention they have a lot of hybrids which is a good sign of puppy mill trading because puppy mills DO NOT CARE and will breed any type of dog with another just to get puppies to make money. If you're looking for a dog, my suggestion is looking into Rescuing or adopting one from a shelter/rescue center, if that is not working out find a local breeder who knows what their doing and does not mind if you come visit and pick a puppy out.

      The puppy trade is creating horrible lives for parent dogs and cats...it is unable to be sufficiently monitored and the laws regarding what is "Humane" treatment are cruel and inadequate. I implore you to research this issue and I'm sure you will see the need to ban pet store sales of puppies and kittens.

      I saw two very skinny puppies with green snot coming out of their nose at the pet shop in the Aurora Mall. Please stop the sadness!

      Breeders, the only reliable source of dogs, do not sell to stores. All dogs, except those from rescue operations and shelters, come out of the barbaric conditions and treatment of puppy mills. The most reliable way to close puppy mills is to end the demand for puppies from retail stores. Only dogs and cats from rescue operations and shelters should be allowed to be sold in stores.
