New ASPCA Video: Puppies Are Not Toys

New ASPCA Video: Puppies Are Not Toys via BabbleMost animal lovers know that many puppy mills are the sites of unspeakable acts against dogs. Still, many people who think about getting a dog immediately consider buying a puppy from a pet store rather than adopting one from a shelter. While they may mean well, they might not realize that puppies from pet stores are most likely the products of puppy mills and by patronizing the pet store, they are unknowingly and indirectly supporting puppy mill cruelty.

In addition, whenever any of us with dogs buy toys, holiday gifts or bones from pet stores that sell puppies, we are also financially helping support puppy mills.

The ASPCA is dedicated to changing that, and their new video campaign, entitled “No Pet Store Puppies”  aims to “educate the public about the connection between pet stores and puppy mills so that they always consider adoption as their first option.”

The goal of the video is to remind people that when shopping in pet stores for puppy gifts, they should not shop in pet stores that sell puppies.

Watch the video below and to learn more about this campaign, visit the ASPCA website. If you want to take the pledge to stand up against puppy mill cruelty, click here.
