Successful Puppy Mill Protest!

About 25 of us were in front of Puppy Town in Sarasota on Tuesday to show support against puppy mills. It was a hot day out but we received lots of love from many drivers passing by. It was wonderful to meet so many other advocates that speak out against this inhumane practice and we can’t wait for the next protest! To see pictures of this event, please visit SarasotaDog.com and click on “Event Photos” at the top of the page.

Below is the information included in the flyers we were passing out to drivers from the Humane Society of the United States:

Why You Shouldn’t Buy a Puppy From a Pet Store:

  • Many pet stores that sell puppies are propping up puppy mills, mass breeding facilities where dogs are crammed into filthy, barren cages with minimal exercise, vet care or human contact.
  • Breeding dogs at puppy mills spend their entire lives in cages without human companionship. When their fertility wanes, they’re destroyed or discarded.
  • Many pet stores mislead customers about the source of their dogs. Pet stores boast that they deal only with USDA licensed breeders. Yet licensing requirements are minimal and many breeders remain licensed despite repeated violations of even these basic standards.
  • Dogs of all shapes and sizes, including purebreds, are available for adoption at shelters and rescue groups.
