STOP PUPPY MILLS UPDATE

November 24, 2008

***************************************

Dear Pet Lovers and Advocates of Fair Treatment,

Thank you so much for taking the time to ask Petland to stop selling puppies. Since our investigation into Petland Incorporated broke on Thursday, tens of thousands of advocates like you have contacted Petland and urged the chain to stop selling puppies. Thank you for speaking out! Our investigation of this puppy-selling chain revealed that Petland is the nation’s largest retail supporter of puppy mills. 

You may have received an “undeliverable” or other error message in your email inbox indicating that your message to Petland’s corporate headquarters was not delivered. We anticipated the possibility that Petland would stop accepting emails from its customers and other advocates, so we made sure that your emails were carbon copied to our Stop Puppy Mills campaign here at The HSUS.

Despite the “undeliverable” or error message you may have received, your message will not be lost; we will make sure your email gets to Petland’s corporate offices.

In the meantime, if you live near a Petland and haven’t done so already, I encourage you to call or visit your local store to tell them you are concerned about puppy mills. Click here to find the address and phone number of your local Petland store:

Finally, please take a moment to call Petland’s coporate headquarters at 740-775-2464 or toll-free at 800-221-5935 and ask them to stop selling puppies.

Thank you again for your concern — and action — to help stop puppy mill cruelty. We pledge to keep the pressure on Petland until the company does the right thing for animals. With your continued help, we’re confident we will succeed.

Sincerely,

Wayne Pacelle

President & CEO, The Humane Society of the United States

P.S. I also encourage you to tell your friends and family members who shop at Petland how they can get involved:

Petland Supports Puppy Mills

 

Maybe you saw Oprah’s show on puppy mills earlier this year, and wondered how this cruelty can persist and who’s responsible.

 
Today, The Humane Society of the United States released the results of a shocking investigation showing that pet store chain Petland Incorporated is the nation’s largest retail supporter of puppy mills. The cruelty must end – watch our video and take action today.
 
Our national, eight-month investigation shows that Petland stores in multiple states are marketing dogs from cruel puppy mills to unsuspecting dog buyers. The investigation into Petland stores in Florida, Indiana, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, and other states revealed that many of the puppies sold at these stores came from massive commercial breeders in Missouri and other states in the Midwest where hundreds of breeding dogs are packed into filthy, crowded cages.
 
Most of the puppies bred at puppy mills are eventually sold over the Internet or through pet stores, including many Petlands in the U.S. The unseen victims are the mother dogs who are forced to live their entire lives behind bars – without exercise, without socialization, without ever being part of a family or even seeing the outside of their cages. 
 
We are committed to stopping puppy mill cruelty, but we can’t do it without your help. The holiday puppy-buying season is in high gear, so please watch our video and then tell Petland to stop selling puppies.  
Then contact your nearest Petland franchise to tell them to get out of the puppy-selling business.  

Thank you for your commitment to stopping puppy mills and for all that you do for animals.

Sincerely,

Wayne Pacelle
President & CEO
The Humane Society of the United States
