We support stores that don't support cruel puppy mills.
By offering puppies for adoption from nearby shelters or moving to a supplies-only model, stores can save the lives of animals in need of a loving home and save breeding dogs trapped in puppy mills. The humane model can also bring in new customers and attract positive media attention for the store. Many dog lovers prefer to buy supplies and get a puppy from a puppy-friendly pet store.
We've made finding a puppy-friendly pet store near you easier than ever! Simply search your two-letter state abbreviation or zip code.
Pet stores are part of the solution
We can guide your store through this process free of charge, assisting with information and often recommending reputable placement partners.
