Don't Shop, ADOPT for Christmas! The Puppy Store Goes Humane!
Wow. The Puppy Store on Melrose in Los Angeles is pretty smart. Rather than face months of siege by animal welfare activists in front of their door, they went humane in four hours of protests. Two weekends are all it took, that and an investigation by the Companion Animal Protection Society.
As Gretchen Wyler used to say, "Cruelty can't stand the spotlight." We found out that the dogs were coming from puppy mills and confronted them with the truth. They will now mend their ways and comply with demands from the animal protection movement.
Bravo to the Puppy Store! Now we can all shop there.
Real men protest puppy mill fronts
I lifted my leg in protest at The Puppy Store on Melrose in Los Angeles for two weekends in a row and they decided to go humane. They knew they couldn't contnue to sell puppy mill dogs if we were going to keep coming like we did to many other stores like Posh Puppy in Beverly Hills. So far in L.A., there are six stores that went out of business and two which have decided to stop their mean puppy mill dealings.
Because of pressure from us pound dogs and our moms, the Puppy Store has promised to never sell puppy mill dogs again. I'm really happy about that because there are so many dogs suffering and lonely all year, not just Christmas, in cages all over the country. Those dogs are used as breeding machines to sell in pet shops and Internet dog websites everywhere.
So Mom and a bunch of our friends want to congratulate the Puppy Store for their really nice-guy decision and now I can go there to buy all my fancy clothes and food and neck jewelry!
We also want to thank the volunteers who came out with adoptable dogs from the Amanda Foundation , Strangest Angels Rescue , the Kris Kelly Foundation and Los Angeles Animal Services. There are so many people losing everything right now and they can't even keep their dogs, so the dogs end up like I did, on death row. So I'm asking you, begging you, please don't buy while my old cell mates at the pound die. Take the $2000 you would have spent on a dog or cat and give it to a family in need instead. Then come down to the shelter and take one of us home. That's the true Christmas spirit.
