AVOID PET STORES
Are you looking to get a puppy? Be sure to skip pet stores, and visit a shelter or a rescue instead. Here's why:
You’ll want to ensure that you are not getting your next pet from a puppy mill. Despite what the pet store may tell you, most pet stores sell puppy-mill puppies. Nearly all puppies sold at a pet store come from a puppy mill (both licensed and unlicensed mills).
Avoid the temptation to rescue a puppy mill dog by buying them. If you purchase a puppy-mill pup, it opens up space for another puppy mill-dog to take its place. You will be financially supporting the puppy-mill industry and continuing the vicious cycle of every dog being replaced by another puppy-mill dog.
