That was great, can I use it? It is surprising just how many people either don't know or don't care. I see them all the time, it is scary. Almost as scary as the people who what a dog for nothing from a breeder, and they don't care about health guarantees.
I am fortunate to work in a pet boutique that doesn't sell animals. We are affiliated with several shelters and rescues this makes me proud. I have a foster kitty at my home.:) The shelters are filled to over flowing and the problem seems to be getting worse. Please spay and neuter and consider adopting a great dog or kitty from a shelter!
That is a good post but it should be somewhere to be seen by the customers that go to the Pet Shop to buy a pup. Most of it is probably impulse buying. I wish they would just make it illegal to sell puppies at Pet Stores.
I do think people are more aware now than ever of puppy mills and bad breeders. Thanks to Oprah and other's getting the word out. And the Obama's want to get a shelter dog--if it's hypoallergenic!
Did you write the poem yourself?? Kudos to you!
