Boycott Perfect Puppy

 “I got a puppy 3 days ago. She was vomiting, lethargic and couldn't hold her head up. Eventually her little body couldn't take anymore. She died."     Rhode Island just got it's first puppy mill, a breeding rescue in the basement of a pet store! Perfect Puppy created a 'rental real estate' company and was approved for a permit to begin breeding and rescuing in the basement of their pet shop! Perfect Puppy imports sick pups from puppy mills and re-sells them to innocent families. Some have died, many may not survive and others are suffering. Dogs in the community have encountered these puppies and have become ill and/or died. They died from diseases such as parvo, infectious pneumonia and kennel cough. People continue to speak out and Perfect Puppy continues to threaten, intimidate and harass. It begins with emails & comments, escalating to visits at work & legal action. Why Should You Care:  Perfect Puppy’s website says "All puppies come vaccinated, have been vetted, and we guarantee their health for two full years"... yet these 'Perfect' puppies aren't even surviving a week... Customer complaints show a pattern of neglect, sickness, pain, suffering and unethical business practices. The factual evidence will hold Perfect Puppy accountable for the harm they cause. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has”    Why Should You Support This Movement?: It's time to end the abusive commercial sale of dogs & cats. It's time to hold Perfect Puppy accountable. This is not about me- I’ve never even purchased a puppy from this store. They target me because I've refused to be bullied into silence. This is about our community and our tolerance for cruelty. People are speaking out and they deserve to be heard. These animals deserve to be spoken for.  Despite mounting evidence and an overwhelming number of formal complaints, State officials have taken no action.  “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor” - Desmond Tutu    Perfect Puppy's Threats, Intimidation, Harassment Threats to enter my workplace   Threats to speak with my supervisors, in an attempt to have me fired Going to my spouse’s workplace, showing their picture, threatening staff  Repeated threatening comments on the Boycott Facebook page.  Comments on my business page  Threats to have me investigated/arrested-"Let’s see who gets investigated now"  Threatening emails  Publicly and repeatedly calling me a “lezbo”.  Screaming from his truck in the road: "Maybe you need a c**k, you f****** lesbian" Perhaps, most threatening, he made sure I was aware that he knew exactly where I live and exactly where I work    Customer Truths: "My sister bought a dog there that did not even last 24 hours” ·  “A friend bought 2 puppies and they both died within 2 weeks” ·  “My friend purchased 3 German Shepherds. All had parvo, died within a week” ·  "We bought our dog from Perfect Puppy. She had multiple skin infections."  ·  “We got sold a very sick puppy! Severe pneumonia, she is not getting better!” ·  "Our puppy was very sick- blind, pneumonia, multiple digestive infections.” ·  “I got a puppy from Perfect Puppy. In the ICU for a week, costing at least $3-4K." ·  "The vet said her face was literally rotting off." ·  “I purchased a VERY sick puppy with the deadly Parvovirus!! Our vet bills cost thousands." "My puppy was hospitalized for a week and Perfect Puppy did NOTHING to help!!!” · "My dog was extremely ill. Pneumonia, giardia, worms, EVERYTHING wrong! We were at the vet 2x a week for months! He might not have made it!”    ~~~~~~~~ Break the Puppy Mill Trade in Rhode Island! ~~~~~~~~ Please share this petition with your friends and family. No puppy deserves to suffer and no family deserves this pain. It takes under a minute to sign this petition, take action and show that you care. Please, help us make a difference. *The Perfect Puppy is currently located in Scituate and West Warwick.
