Beware Petland Petstore Selling "Puppy Mill" Pups!!

I've been notified that the Humane Society has been investigating Petland Incorporated for eight months. In their investigation they found that Petland stores are selling puppies, which are being bred at huge puppy mills in Missouri and the midwest!

Many consumers don't know they're buying and supporting puppy mills by buying their pets at petstores. Please if you are looking to adopt a new pet, look no further than your local pet shelter. There are many dogs and puppies available, and some are full breed dogs just waiting for a good home!

A list of Petland stores are here, and you can take action here to help stop Puppy Mills take the the pledge to Stop Puppy Mills here.

I 'm elated with the accomplishments here in my own state, with the passage of the Pennsylvania Puppy Mill Dog Bill H.B. 2525! Also with the ethical treatment of caged farm animals in California with the passage of Proposition 2.

Thanks to the Humane Society for all they do to protect innocent animals. We can all support and be the voice of these sweet creatures who can't speak for themselves. Beware that you may be purchasing a puppy mill pet!

Jo Janoski said...

Thankew! Appreciate the awards! Blush! Did you see about the gasoline leak today? That's right at the bottom of our hill. I'm surprised they didn't evacuate us. The wind was going the other way apparently. Whew!

Hi Maggie,

Thank you, glad you liked my photo!

Jo A. T.B. said...

Hi Jose,

Thank you, yes this is my place! I can't say I always like the snow, but it's quite beautiful to look at! :)

Jo A. T.B. said...

Thank you Dan, I love taking photos! You deserve the awards! The wood burner is running full force, the only heat which keeps our home warm!

Jo A. T.B. said...

Oh shucks Jo, you sure deserve all the awards. I know no one who's heart is more into writing than you, maybe Dan!

That was some gas leak, we have driven that way often. Yes you were lucky seems a lot of that area was evacuated! I get so scared of those gas leaks, and houses with gas blowing up! You never know what will occur next!

>>supporting puppy mills by buying their pets at petstores
Neither I knew! Thanks for letting me know.
I hope your action produce the expected results!!!

Ohayo Ochi,

You are up later tonight! Thanks the photo is one of my favorites of my winter pics. You know I went through so many templates, and I think I've finally found one to accommodate my text, and compliment my photos!

I know this won't make puppy mills go away, or solve the main problems. But we can bring attention to what is going on! I think Puppy mills need to be regulated everywhere, not just here in my state! I for one would like to see them completely go away!

Hi jo,

Looks like I'm late according to the time stamp, but it was actually 2PM in Japan. Can't say it loud, though...

I know! I once spent few hours to search templates! Too many, right!!!

You did educate me in many fields that I didn't know. Your action is important!!! Thank you!

Jo A. T.B. said...

Hi Ochi,

I heard on the news that Petland is denying the charges, so we'll have to wait and see if there's more news.

Hate to bring bad news about a business, but consumers have the right to know what is happening, and what they're buying!
