“The March Puppy Mill Protest will be held on Saturday from 10 am to noon at the west entrance to the Tucson Mall. (For regular participants, take note that this protest will be located to the north of where the protest is usually held, at the Oracle and Auto Mall entrance near Sears.) Park as far away from businesses as possible and please consider wearing a hat, and bring water. Signs will be available!
Tucson Mall is home to one of the state’s largest pet store enterprises — Animal Kingdom — in partnership with Puppies ‘n Love. These stores purchase and sell puppies, the majority of whom are driven here in vans from commercial breeding facilities in the Midwest to be sold for thousands of dollars. How to end the puppy mill trade? Don’t buy from pet stores is a great start.
“If you buy a puppy from a pet store, this is what you’re paying for and nothing else: a dog raised in puppy-mill evil.” (John Goodwin, director of The Humane Society of the United States – Puppy Mills Campaign)
