Selling puppies in pet stores

Please stop pet stores from selling puppies!  Those puppies come from puppy mills, and everybody knows puppy mills are just in business to make money and not because of loving and caring about dogs. Breeding dogs in puppy mills live a horrible life, and by allowing pet stores to sell puppies, that is ensuring that the puppy mill business will prosper and animals will lose as always.
