Watch out! If you buy anything from pet stores that sell puppies, we’ll find you.
As part of the ASPCA “No Pet Store Puppies” campaign, we’re launching a national fleet of covert canine agents tasked with using advanced interrogation tactics to identify consumers supporting the cruel puppy mill industry. Most puppies sold in pet stores come from puppy mills, where they are kept in hostile conditions and do not receive proper veterinary care. The ASPCA’s interrogating canines will not roll over until this inhumane industry is eradicated.
“Our highly skilled fleet of puppy interrogators will be instrumental in identifying consumers backing the inhumane puppy mill industry with their purchases,” said Cori Menkin, Senior Director of the ASPCA’s Puppy Mills Campaign. “Our canine agents are ready to take this cause into their own paws, and it will be a dog day afternoon for anyone caught holding the wrong biscuit.”
We’ve already unleashed several of these undercover dog interrogators to tail pet owners who shop at pet stores that sell puppies. The campaign selected puppies that clearly have a bone to pick with the commercial breeding facilities that hold their canine comrades captive in such unsanitary, overcrowded conditions.
Confidential footage depicting one such interrogation session was leaked earlier this week and can be viewed below. Additional information can be found searching the hashtag #PuppySpies on Twitter.
