One more step closer to putting puppy mills out of business forever

There was some really wonderful news today cited on the Best Friends Animal Society homepage.

In a huge endorsement by the public, an upscale mall in Beverly Hills, CA announced that it will not be renewing the lease of Pet Love,a pet store that buys their dogs from puppy mills.

” Pet Love is to pet stores what FAO Schwarz is to toy stores, says Julie Castle, director of Best Friends Community Programs and Services.

Interesting to note that Best Friends was not trying to shut the store down, but to educate the owners that there was a more humane and responsible model to use. Apparently, the owners refused to listen, but the public did and expressed their indignation.

This is a great Christmas present for the animals.
