We iz mad!!!!


America's largest chain of puppy-selling pet stores, Petland Inc., is also the nation's largest retail supporter of puppy mills. An eight-month investigation by The HSUS reveals that many Petland stores across the country are marketing puppy mill puppies to unsuspecting consumers.

Watch our video; then tell Petland to get out of the puppy-selling business.

We agree, we just heard about this today!!!

Mango said...

Thank you for that public service announcement. We don't go to those big box doggie stores. Even though it costs a little more, we only go to the locally owned store so we know what's going on behind the scenes.

Slobbers,

thanks for letting us know about that. our mom said that pet stores always sell puppy mill dogs. she shops in the little local independent stores - no puppies there, only good dog treats and toys.

woofs.

That is terrible. I hope all this puppymill thingy will stop. We have met lots of dog that are being thrown out by the breeders after they got old and no longer able to produce puppies and most of the time these dogs are already in very bad shape.

Hi, Rocky -

Mama and I (Hershey) also saw this on Dogster. This is really disgusting. We don't think that we have a store in Connecticut but Mama is really mad so she will go and sign.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

P.S. Bosco is getting really mad too.

Maybe more people will adopt a rescue now or at least find an ethical breeder.

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

That is terrible. I can't believe with all the puppies and kittens needing good home that a major Pet supply chain would sell puppy mill puppies. Thank you for letting us know about this.

Hey Rocky, I would like to know more about you, so I have tag you for the 8 Things Me-me. It's very easy to do, and I hope you will play along.

we are sure that Callie will grow into those ears just as Louie did..

The OP Pack said...

We have a few Petlands in our area but we were so furry delighted to see one furry close to us get closed down recently. We always try to educate people about not buying pups from THAT place. Thanks for your efforts to get the word out.

Mom only shops at local pet stores. The suffering of dogs, just so some human can have pretty things is so wrong.

We don't have that store here in Canada but we'll write anyway. Shame on them and shame on the people who run puppy mills. What a pathetic way to make money - on the backs of defenceless animals. Poop to them.

MONA AND THE MOMMY! said...

The Mommy was furious when she got a e-mail from the Humane Society about this. Thank God we don't got Petland's stores here in Houston cuase the Mommy would have thrown bricks through their windows if they was.

I hope you get some snow so you can send us a picture but I don't gonna have a snow picture either.

Love ya lots Mona & the Mommy too!!

Rocky,

My mom gets mad about puppy mills too! Leah bought me from a pet store (not Petland) and my mom is convinced I came from a bad puppy mill cause I was really sick for awile when I first came home.
