The Wisconsin Puppy Mill Project will continue to
encourage our members and the general public NOT to shop at PETLAND Stores or
any other pet shop that sells live animals.
We do not support the opening of new PETLAND or any
other pet shop that sells live animals in Wisconsin.
PETLAND and other pet stores sell puppies from mass
breeding facilities. We do not support the mass breeding of puppies.
Pet Stores sell other species to anyone who walks
into the store with the money. We do not believe that this leads to a
happy and healthy relationship between pets and people. Too many of these
animals are purchased on a whim and when the fun wears off, these animals are
abandoned to our shelters. Shelters end up cleaning up the mess and
taking on the responsibility for the care of these animals while the pet
peddlers and distributors cash in.
The Wisconsin Puppy Mill Project will fully cooperate
with any action directed at educating the public about responsible pet
ownership and the industry behind the cute puppies in the glass
cages at pet stores.
We support the boycott of Petland Stores.

protests near you.
We will continue our efforts to encourage people to
ADOPT rather than buy pets at pet shops like PETLAND.
We will devote time and resources to gaining community
awareness of the pet milling industry.
We will continue to tell the pubic that over 8 MILLION
homeless pets put to death every year due to lack of homes. Until pet SELLERS
take responsibility for the lives they create, sell and make a profit from, we
will continue to ask people to support pet supply stores that are part of the
solution rather than part of the problem.
recommend that pet stores like PETLAND use available space to operate
legitimate ADOPTION CENTERS for local shelters/resuces in their stores. By
doing so, they can be heroes for pets and pet owners alike. Adoption Centers
help to save lives rather than contributing to the cycle of homeless pets and
the waste of life created by the pet seller trade.
