ASPCA Gift Pack
Join WebVet and the ASPCA in the fight against puppy mills!

ASPCA's No Pet Store Puppies campaign aims to educate the public about the link between pet store puppies and cruel puppy mills and encourage animal lovers to pledge not to shop at pet stores (or on websites) if they sell puppies.

WebVet: Puppy Mill Problem Isn't Going Away

Join over 100,000 others who have already made the pledge by posting an "I pledged badge" on your social networks! Click here to get the badge.

One random winner will receive a fabulous ASPCA gift pack that includes an ASPCA medium T-shirt, Cute dog mug, ASPCA wristband, ASPCA magnet, orange tote and ASPCA calendar.

Some additional information about the No Pet Store Puppies campaign and about puppy mills:
  • The ASPCA estimates that there are thousands of pet stores in the U.S. that sell puppies. The ASPCA ultimately seeks to convince pet stores to limit their business to pet supplies and encourages them to partner with their local shelters to offer adoptable pets in their stores.
  • Operators of puppy mills breed dogs in unsanitary, overcrowded and often cruel conditions where profit is given priority over the well-being of the dogs.
  • According to a poll conducted by Lake Research Partners and commissioned by the ASPCA, 78 percent of consumers are unaware that most puppies sold in pet stores come from large-scale commercial breeding operations commonly known as puppy mills.
  • The poll also reveals that nearly 80 percent of consumers would not purchase a puppy if they knew it came from a puppy mill.
