Record Number of Pet Stores Against Puppy Mills

The Humane Society of the United States announces that more than 2,000 pet stores are anti-puppy mills.

The Humane Society of the United States reveals that the number of pet stores that do not support puppy mills has reached more than 2,000 retailers—an all-time high. The HSUS determined this number through the number of pet stores that participate in their Puppy Friendly Pet Stores program. The animal-welfare organization applauds nationwide pet stores’ efforts in becoming more humanely run, announcing that these businesses are “being leaders in the humane economy.” Reporting that two to four million puppy-mill canines are sold in the United States each year, the HSUS stands active in helping pet stores become adoption-only.
