100,000 Take Action Against Puppy Mills—Want to Join Them?

Monday, May 21, 2012 - 1:30pm

YES! We are super-happy to report that as of today, more than 100,000 people have signed our "No Pet Store Puppies" pledge! The pledge aims to reduce the demand for puppy mill puppies by asking consumers to not buy any items at a store that sells puppies. "Huh?" you ask?

You see, the logic is simple: Most pet store puppies come from puppy mills. Even if you know better than to buy a puppy from a pet store, by purchasing any item from a store that sells puppies, you are still supporting the puppy mill industry. So please, don’t buy anything! No kibble, no kitty litter, no toys—no nothing!

And while you’re at it, visit and take the pledge. It’s not that we don’t trust your new humane shopping plans, but adding your name to our pledge list will go a long way in proving to the industry that we mean business. As they say…it takes an army!

Don't forget to spread the word to friends and family on Facebook and Twitter! It's time we put an end to puppy mills.

don't buy from breeders of mills, we don't need to overpopulated any more, and this pets suffer tremendously, instead adopt from the local shelter, that is what i have done, never believe in pet stores that sell dogs or cats, and nevertheless mills or breeders they only profit for their own good, never caring for the welfare of the animal.


Don't shop in the stores that sell puppies because they support puppy mills!! If we all stay away, they will have to close!!
