One of the Largest Puppy Brokers Shuts Its Doors!

Guest blog written by Cori Menkin, Senior Director of the ASPCA's Puppy Mills Campaign.

Lambriar, Inc., one of the largest puppy brokers in the United States, has announced that it is closing its kennel doors for good. Puppy brokers like Lambriar are middlemen, buying dogs from puppy mills and distributing them to pet stores throughout the country. Brokers are an important cog in the wheel of the cruel and inhumane puppy mill industry.

When asked why Lambriar is closing its doors, owner Roger Lambert told Kansas newspaper  The Belleville Telescope “When you couple the bad economy with increasing rules and regulations and increased pressure from animal rights activists, well, it just got too hard.”

We have been working hard to shed light on the link between puppy mills and pet store puppies, and it seems to be working! As more and more people take our No Pet Store Puppies pledge not to buy anything in stores that sell puppies, the industry will continue to feel the ripple effects and be forced to make changes.

If you haven’t taken the No Pet Store Puppies pledge yet, please do! And please be sure to share it with your friends so that one day, puppy mill cruelty will be a distant memory.

Join me in pledging to not buy puppies from pet stores. Puppies are not products and their parents are not breeding machines to be kept in squalor for profit. We will never buy puppies from pet stores.

Katie

agreed! Also pledging not to buy from online sites that retail puppies (may say pure breed/AKC/CKC/ or mix breeds) and ship or agree to meet you. Obtain puppies from reputable breeders. Between 3-4 million puppies, kittens, dogs & cats are put to death annually in the United States!

This is wonderful news and after reading the article i can see that all of the sharing and signing that i do everyday is making a difference.I take the pledge to never buy from pet stores that sell animals....I hope this is the beginning of the end of puppy farms and animals having to spend their lives as locked up neglected abused breeding machines for profit!!!!!!!

I pledge not to buy anything from stores that sell puppies. There is just one thing, I feel terrible for the puppies sitting in their cages and worry who is purchasing them.
