We are so proud of PJ’s Pets! The nationwide Canadian chain has joined the new generation of responsible pet stores by deliberately ending their sell of puppies.
This week PJ's announced their stores will facilitate adoptions of pets in need of homes instead of selling puppies most likely from puppy mills.
Costumers might still be able find their next pet at the store. The chain is allowing rescue organizations to set up tables to hand out leaflets, show photos of the dogs and take adoption applications. Some stores will also have kennels with shelter dogs available for adoption. How great is that??
Michael O’Sullivan, the CEO of the Humane Society of Canada couldn't me more pleased with the company's decision. He said:
“I think it puts the responsibility where it belongs and it’s wonderful for the animals,”
Their new policy goes into effect Semptember 1, 2011.
