Adopt Don’t Shop. (Duh.)
Well over two thousand perfectly sweet, well-behaved, loving dogs in need of homes are put to death EVERY DAY in shelters across America. If you buy a puppy from a pet store, you are contributing to the murders – and also to the continued slavery and suffering of breeder dogs in puppy mills.
Most of the reasons people typically give for not wanting to adopt, and instead wanting to buy a “healthy”, “undamaged” puppy from a store, are baseless, misinformed, and off the mark.
