Our congratulations go out to LOTS of Los Angeles activists and organizations who worked together to convince another pet store to abandon support for puppy mills. Animals in the Los Angeles shelter system will now have an additional place to be seen and adopted in Santa Monica. The dogs who are currently in the store will be put up for adoption.Hey people, Apparently these protests work! Join one or start your own!
This was a group effort including Animal Advocates Alliance, the Companion Animal Protection Society, HSUS, Stray Cat Alliance, The Kris Kelly Foundation, Strangest Angels Rescue, In Defense of Animals, Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue, Much Love Animal Rescue, Social Compassion in Legislation, and Animal Acres.
Do whatever you can to get the word out to stop this evil practice. Check out what this person is doing to use the internet to educate the public on puppymills: http://www.squidoo.com/dontshopadopt
