Bit of a philosophy question here…I have been wondering about pet stores. Particularly, the pet stores that mistreat animals. Imagine walking through a pet shop and seeing all of the puppies lined against the wall in small cages and wire floors. They all look either far too lethargic for any puppy…
You can report them to the police and your local ASPCA animal rescue. There is typically a 24 hour can call. Id call the aspca first. Depending on the state animal neglect can carry up to felony charge. Also the agency they are getting these places is probable a “puppy mill”. Law enforcement will look into the licensing and papers of all the animals and the ASPCA will make sure they have all seen a vet and are healthy. Here in Houston, Tx we had 4-5 huge animal breeding operations go down in the last year all because someone noticed something was wrong and stepped up to the plate. GOOD LUCK!
