That's so sad! I won't be buying pets in the NEAR future, but I know I will someday be buying pets again. I will most likely be going to a pound though. I always feel bad for he animals in pounds because they don't have much love.

Try watching this video, very touching. Takes a few minutes to download, but it's touching and the song really fits in with the video.

yeah, pet shops are dodgy, but what will happen to the animals in the pet shop? I feel very sorry for them. Although not all pets come from these farms; alot of breeders, etc give/sell them to the pet shop. I've always heard it's better to buy your pet from a pound or shelter.

I know, it's terrible. Puppies in a mill. Nonsense. What kind of cruel-hearted person would put a bunch of poor, defenseless, helpless puppies in a place where they could very well die? It's not right!

I understand what you're saying. I know that this is also a hard topic for a lot of people. I am in NO WAY condoning what takes place but can we all please remember

(Oh I am shouting)

EVERY ANIMAL DESERVES A LOVING HOME!!!!!

Looking into the big brown eyes of your puppy and ask him if it is his fault that he was born in a puppy mill? Ask him if it is his fault that his mummy and daddy we horribly mistreatedl. What is he says? He is probably looking at you and saying 'No'.
Puppy/kitty mills are horrible but puppies cannot help how they were brounght into this world. If you can give a puppy, or any animal for that matter, a loving home DO IT! Regarless of where he came from. It isn't his fault.

^^ the problem is, when you buy a puppy from a puppy mill, the puppy mill gets your money, and they use it to breed even more miserable puppies! the only way to stop them is to put them out of buisiness.

thats horrid!

I work in a pet shop - we dont sell puppies or kittens - for licencing reasons (and the pet shop is TINY!!) But we do sell rabbits , guinea pigs , hamsters , mice , budgies , fish , tortoises(i love them two lil guys we nicknamed them Posh + Becks) etc .. and i couldnt imagine how anybody could treat animals disrespectfully!! we now have a law in the UK that we cannot sell to Under 16s any animal what-so-ever!(stops people tying them to fireworks {we have heard stories of this})

So yeah we treat our animals there with great care!!its sad that people can treat animals like this!!

Dx
(remember a Dog (or any other animal for that matter) is for life - not just for christmas)

[sorry to go on]

That's so true, animals brought up in cages have serious mental issues afterwards. If you want a family dog then you should buy it from a family. But I think it's fine to buy hamsterrs and fish.

I LOVE this thread! It explains my point of view. I don't really think people should buy purebreds at all. Almost every breed has major health problems. My dad and stepmom bought two mini-Daschunds, and while they are AMAZING dogs with great temperaments my dad had no idea what he was getting into when he bought the first one and got him from an overpopulated kennel. He has so many health problems with his back, and it's so bad that he can barely walk sometimes. They were more experienced and careful when they got their second one, and she's very healthy, but people should be very cautious when buying. Also, like you said, every time you buy that's one animal at a shelter that didn't get a chance.

No offense to anyone who has bought animals - my parents chose to, and I love my dogs. But I've worked at an animal shelter, and I really feel like adopting is best.

The computers have been on and off today and I did not check the links but I can guess what it is like.I think in Australia that the RSPCA would check up on pet shops.They look out for cruelty.I do not buy pet food with Tuna in it anymore because I saw on T.V. that dolphins were being caught in Tuna nets and killed.I could not find the PET section the other day ,really,I must have looked in all the wrong places.I wrote about my Alaskan Malamute under Native American Dancing.Nobody complained.It is a little bit funny I think.
Dont buy....

one other thing I thought of...maybe people should be carefull of all sellers.Some people try to smuggle birds and lizards from Australia.They often get sick because of the cramped and dangerous ways they are smuggled.Some people even try to smuggle eggs.
