Selling Puppies and Kitties

I’m shocked this is still a conversation that needs to be had. It should be so obvious that stores selling dogs and cats for profit should no longer exist, yet they still do. When we have shelters with millions of homeless animals nationwide, you’d think it’d be a no brainer to end this crises. 

It’s time to make a change. Stop supporting mills and start focusing on saving homeless animals and finding them their forever homes or we will be in this vicious cycle forever - dogs being bought who end up in a shelter. It’s the story that never ends!
