We will be starting up a peaceful rally at a pet store that we had been rallying at for the last 6 years, Puppies N Stuff (PNS). Puppies N Stuff sells puppy mill puppies. Buying a puppy from a pet store supports puppy mills.
The owner of PNS decided that after she was exposed on October 14 on channel 4 news about selling sick puppies that she was ready to flip to a more humane model and sell only puppies from shelters and rescues. We have been monitoring this transition, working with the HSUS puppy mill campaign manager and a local rescue to keep the store supplied with rescues. At the end of July 2018, a video of inside PNS surfaced on FB and showed puppies in the store. Per HSUS manager, “based on the video, it looks like all the store is doing is selling puppies. There doesn’t seem to be much enrichment for the animals and I know the owner is not interested in selling kittens/cats for adoption.’
In addition, the 2 shelters that HSUS recommended for transporting rescues to PNS are not pleased with the store’s current setup of diversity. They only seem to be concentrating on the sale of puppies and not much else. In order to have a good customer base, it would be helpful to provide supplies that puppies would need going forward.
We are right in time with the high volume holiday buying season. We will start with our first rally on Saturday, November 24, 11 am -1 pm. With followup rallies every Saturday in December. Dress warm, wear layers, something to drink, hand/toe warmers, hats, gloves,and comfortable shoes too. We have signs! We just need your smile and commitment to be the animal’s voices!
