Re: “Updated: Looking for a New Pet? Forgo the Puppy Mills at 'Adopt, Don't Shop'

Please adopt don’t shop. If you follow the puppy mill pipeline, you will see how often commercial pet stores source their dogs from puppy mills. Although they often misleadingly point to USDA licensing as a standard of care, the USDA itself regularly admits that its own standards are extremely problematic. You don’t even have to take my word for it, here it is in their own words: https://www.usda.gov/oig/webdocs/33002-4-SF.pdf (pp.5 & 10-13 especially).

As for the claim that commercial pet sales bans are somehow discriminatory against those who want particular dog breeds completely ignores the fact that there are rescue organizations that specialize in every single breed of dog under the sun. I strongly encourage people to do their own research, and I have no doubt they will come to the same conclusions. Here is a helpful link for those interested (http://bestfriends.org/resources/stop-puppy-mills-15-things-you-can-do).
