**UPDATE** This pledge ends tomorrow!
We lost our beloved dog last year and plan on getting a new family member soon-and it will be from the pound or a breeder.
Pet stores that care about puppies don’t sell them. That’s because the majority of pet stores that sell puppies carry dogs from cruel and inhumane puppy mills. Puppy mills are like dog-making factories with the mother dogs spending their entire lives in cramped cages or kennels with little or no personal attention or quality of life. When the mother and father dogs can no longer breed, they are discarded or killed. Consumers who purchase puppies from pet stores or over the Internet without seeing a breeder’s home firsthand are often unknowingly supporting this cruel industry.
This is a terrific cause to help protect puppies-I already took the pledge!
