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.
