Petstore protests are
more important than ever since Wisconsin's new commercial dog breeder/ seller
law went in to effect in June 2011. Don't make the mistake of thinking just
because that puppy may have come from a licenced Wisconsin breeding facility
that his parents have a good life.
Petstores frequently buy
dogs from brokers, who get them not only from WI breeders, but also from
out-of-state sources. We suspect that as WI commercial breeders opt to go out
of business rather than comply with the new laws, more and more out-of-state
puppies will find their way into Wisconsin pet stores.
are MORE than welcome to join the protests listed below! Please click on the
"contact" links for details. Remember, dress for the weather, as you
will be outside, and bring a sign or a poster if you can. If you can't make one
for some reason, don't let that stop you -- there may be extras on-site, and
your just being there is VERY important!
