I am the person who is trying to pass the ordinance in Hallandale beach to not only close the two shops we have, but to not allow any others to open.
You make an excellent point about "boutique shelters", but this is a separate issue. When people ask me how I can worry about pet shops when my city officials are incompetent, wasting our budgets, etc.--I say if that is YOUR fight than fight it. One issue is separate from another. While we are fighting to close down shops, someone else can be helping to bring awareness to shelter animals. One cause is not better than another, only different. The only way to get the government to stop issuing 3,000 puppy mill licenses a year is to work from the bottom up. We will bring national awareness that this business of exploiting and mistreating animals is unacceptable. A national movement has begun. We are going to help take the money out of this horrible business without the lobbyist's or Government's help. If they need to create false USDA jobs, they will need to do it somewhere else. Once people win this cause, they will help to win others. You start that movement and we will support it also.
I support any and all causes that help stop the killing and abuse of ALL animals.


I will be at Uncle Bill's Pet Centers on July 24 in Indianapolis, Indiana protesting with the PetShopPuppies.Org group. This small chain of stores sells puppies they get from Indiana puppy mills and it's our mission to put them out of business.
