Demonstrations work. Not only do the educate the public about the horrors of intensive breeding facilities for companion animals, otherwise known as puppy and kitten mills, but they allow consumers to make informed choices about what kind of business they want to support. The recent closing of this Petland franchise in California
The average person disagrees with the way dogs and cats are treated in mills. Letting the public know that a simple choice like where to buy pet food or find a new furry family member can help put an end to the suffering in mills goes a long way toward making puppy and kitten mills history.
Each time a Petland closes, the remaining franchises who are still being targeted with protests feels an intensity in our message. It proves that we're making a difference and that their customers agree with us that doing business with mills isn't okay. We know it's really cold, and we know it's a busy time of year - but now is not the time to let up on these demos.
Join us at the Petland in Shakopee on Sunday December 20th from 11am-12pm to discourage people from buying a Christmas puppy from Petland and to continue our education campaign about Petland's support of puppy and kitten mills.
