Puppies Are Not for Sale

Paws Up!

To PJ’s Pets and Pets Unlimited for announcing they will no longer sell puppies at any of their stores.

According to a news report, “As of September 1st, [PJ’s Pets and Pets Unlimited] focus will be to support pet adoption services in an effort to find homes for thousands of pets in local SPCA’s, Humane Societies, rescue groups and shelters across the country.

“Each store will have a dedicated area for adoption organizations to hand out brochures/pamphlets, handle adoption applications, and show photos of adoptable pets. Stores that can accommodate it will have kennel space reserved for shelter pets. The company is reaching out to a long list of groups that it hopes will take advantage of and benefit from this program.”

Too many puppies sold in pet stores are the product of puppy mills; so stores that refuse to sell puppies are saying to the mill owners, we do not want to sell the products of misery, degradation, and despair.

Take Action:  Canadian residents, thank PJ’s Pets and Pets Unlimited for making this move. To the rest of our readers, please contact pet stores in your communities if they are selling puppies and urge them to stop supporting the horror of puppy mills and help support the dogs of their community by working with humane societies and rescue groups.
