Just Say No to Puppy Mills This Holiday Season
We like to joke around a lot at The Fluffington Post, but we’re all kinds of serious when it comes to treating animals well. That’s why we’re happy to join the ASPCA in calling for an end to puppy mills.
If you’re planning to add a puppy to your family this holiday season, please consider adoption instead of purchasing one through a pet store. And if you’re planning to buy gifts for the pets already in your life, please try not to purchase anything from pet stores that sell puppies from puppy mills.
Americans plan to spend more than $2.5 billion on pets this holiday season, according to recently released poll. Unfortunately, more than half of pet shoppers say they would consider shopping at a store that also sells puppies — meaning a big chunk of that $2.5 billion could directly or indirectly support the puppy mill industry.
When you’re out shopping for your pets this month, make sure you’re shopping at stores that don’t use puppy mills. And please like or reblog this post to help us spread this important message.
