Puppy mills have long been a scourge to the animal welfare community. Your organization can help put an end to them – by working with your local pet stores! Using our proven Puppy-Friendly Pet Stores model, your local pet stores can switch to offering puppies from your organization for adoption, saving lives, bringing positive media attention and gaining new business. Also learn about puppy mill investigations, seizures and prosecution.
