4 THINGS PET STORES DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW
Pet stores cause countless dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, reptiles, and other animals to endure extreme pain and suffering. Here are three reasons why you should NEVER buy an animal from a pet store:
1. Most animals sold in pet stores come from breeding mills.
Ever wonder where puppies, kittens, and other animals in pet stores come from? Most of them are born at breeding mills—places where animals are forced to give birth over and over again, only to have their babies taken away so that they can place them in pet stores. When females can't have any more babies, they are killed or sold.
2. Animals are treated poorly.
Most animals die before they reach the pet shop. In a recent discovery, it was discovered that over 75% die. They also get no proper animal care.
3. They get shown no mercy.
They get thrown away, frozen in freezers, or killed, when they become sick or weak.
