Pink says to Boycott Pet Stores

I agree with Pink. A lot of these puppies are born in overcrowded puppy mills and are not cared for well at all. Most of the dogs become aggressive and are unable to be socialized enough to counteract their distrust of humans…which is sad, and usually results in them having to be put to sleep.

3 dogs that I have owned came from pet shops. I know how luring it is when you see those little doggie in the windows, but consider going to the ASPCA or the Animal Care and Control Centers. Believe it or not, they also have tiny toy dogs and puppies if you are looking for that, for a much more reasonable price. Not to mention…they need a home too.

If pet shops cant sell puppies, they won’t purchase them from puppy mills, who wont be able to support their inhumanities. Very simple. I know they need homes too, but the longer they stay, the cheaper the price goes, and if the shop cant earn a profit they won’t bother buying them.

It should probably be a law that only licensed breeders can sell puppies, anyone else should be considered to be selling live animals on the blackmarket. Like selling babies…either adopt at the right place or go to jail for buying it off the streets.

Our country needs to enforce shutting down puppy mills, and put hefty fines and jail time for anyone that participates in puppy mill activities. How animals are respected says a lot about a country.

Spain, how about you end the inhumane bull fights too?

  1. I agree that those who breed dogs should be licensed. Unfortunately, it is a tax free business to breed as many of our living, breathing canine friends for profit as we so chose….I choose not to do so.
    It should also be a stipulation for anyone wanting to apply for such a license to volunteer in a kill shelter for no less than 40hrs. It is a very humbling experience to look into a dogs eyes and know that they know.
    P.S. Cats too!!
    Thanks for caring.

    • Your idea for breeders to have to volunteer in a kill shelter first is a great idea! I always think that to even own pets like dogs and cats, there should be some sort of prerequisite. There are so many owners that act like they don’t know how to love and care for their pets.
