Buying from a pet shop perpetuates this inhumane,exploitative treatment as well as the tragedy of petoverpopulation, since as long as there is any demand,puppy mills will keep breeding and overbreeding forprofit.

Every pet shop will assure you, solemnly, that puppies are different. puppies don't come from puppy mills, but from wonderful local breeders. * Puppies can also be exposed to disease, infections and parasites at the pet shop/kennel.

Charm City Puppies wants to change the way you think about puppy stores! We are not your typical pet store. Our adorable puppies romp, play, and socialize in open baby cribs. Our boutique offers toys, treats, clothing and accessories you may not be able to find at most pet shops.Even if the standards were adequate, they're not enforced! Take a look at a done by the Inspector General on USDA's lax enforcement of the law regulating breeders (heads up, it's a little graphic!) and judge for yourself whether USDA licensing of puppy mills is enough to make you shop at stores that sell puppies. We don't think it is! In fact, you only have to be licensed by USDA as a commercial breeder if you are selling puppies to pet stores or brokers! So USDA licensure is actually a pretty good indicator that the breeders are, in fact, puppy mills! Small hobby breeders who sell their dogs directly to the public, including those who only sell their puppies online, do not have to be licensed or inspected by USDA.Responsible breeders specialize in one or two dog breeds, at most, and they have extensive knowledge of the dogs. They will help you decide whether the small breed dog, which you choose is right for you, based on your lifestyle and current situation. They thoroughly know their breed and can make recommendations based on temperament, grooming, and even health concerns.

In contrast, pet store personnel may know little about the breed. Their work is to sell breed books and provide information that may not be accurate. Most have little training or experience with the breeds at the store. Their goal is to sell their pet store puppies as quickly as possible to make room for more puppies to enter the shop.

An eight week old puppy is very cute, but if the puppy doesn’t sell right away, the harder it will be to sell. Pet Stores aren’t concerned whether the puppy is right for you. Rather they care whether you can pay the price of the dog.
Help us celebrate No Pet Store Puppies Day on July 21 by taking the pledge and refusing to shop in pet stores and on websites that sell puppies.Don’t support the industry.
Most pet shop puppies come from puppy mills, and so do most dogs sold over the Internet. Pet shop puppies are separated from their mother at as young as six weeks of age. The health of the puppies is not always guaranteed.Holiday shopping looms and pet stores are ready with a supply of puppies. Prices may seem a bit high, but plastic money is accepted at the check-out counter. The puppies are playful, have quick tongues that lavish kisses on happy faces, and are AKC registered.
