Pet Shops Puppy Mills -- Consumers Get the Truth

Mary E Haight's curator insight, July 11, 2013 3:55 PM

ASPCA has put together a new tool for the public who have for years been lied to by pet shops everywhere as to where they get their puppies. As if a posse of knowledgable elderly ladies who have been breeding for show all their lives decided to hook up with pet shops to sell their puppies. Or the other smoke and mirrors boast that they get all their puppies from a "USDA approved and inspected facility". You pay your money, you get a license...someday an inspector might come is the fact of the matter.


This tool lets anyone look up the puppy mill that delivers to the local pet shop, and shows pictures of the inside of the facility so you know what conditions look like. A public shaming for the puppy mills, a good education for the public. Tweet or share this post and tell all your friends!

Dog people are all over town with their dogs, meeting other dogs on the street, in the dog park, at doggy daycare...if you know body language you can interrupt an escalating situation before a fight occurs, keep your dog away from trouble and keep yourself safe or at least safer from dog bites!
