I recently recieved an e-mail from Dogster to "take the pledge" to not buy pet store dogs, that they were born in puppy mills. My question is, don't they deserve love and affection too? It is not their fault where or how they were born, and if they aren't sold they'll be put down. I understand that shelter dogs and rescue dogs need love, and they need to be saved but don't pet store dogs deserve it too? In a pet store, the dogs are kept in tiny cages, they aren't taken outside, and they recieve very little love. In a shelter or humane society they are kept in large cages, they are let outside, they are taken for walks, and the people working with them give them extra love and attention because of their situations; where as some pet store dogs will NEVER feel that amount of attention because they will be put down. I am not saying that pet stores are the way to go for everyone, all I'm saying is that before you take a pledge to "say no" really think about what your saying no to.
