Although Look Puppies in Henderson, Nevada was visited by Animal Control nearly 50 times since 2006, the business still continues to sell puppies. In fact, the pet shop touts itself as an adoption facility. The facility conditions are deplorable. Rusted cages stacked on top of each other, cockroaches crawling throughout the shop, and sick animals are some of the most common complaints.
While the city has shut down the shop a couple of times, the owners have historically addressed the complaints during their allotted five-day window and have been permitted to reopen. A local television station has been integral in the investigation, and most recently reported the latest temporary closure.
Despite four years of complaints, local officials continue to allow the business operate. The sick puppies are forced to live in overcrowded, filthy crates. These inhumane conditions should not be allowed to continue. It's time to shut down Look Puppies for good.

Since 2006, the City of Henderson's Animal Control has been called to the store nearly 50 times on a variety of complaints ranging from the cleanliness of the facility to the poor health of the animals. These repeated calls waste the city's resources and the taxpayers' dollars.
Look Puppies has been given many second chances. Instead of continuing to react to each individual complaint, shut down the business.
