Save the dogs sign now

I received this from a friend the other day in e-mail and wanted to start a petition to stop these people from profitting off of the innocent pups that will be used for this breeding mill. Please sign this petition and show them how disgusted you are with them and their so called new business that they want to start up. Thank you.

Dear Staff & Network Members,

Seems like our Furburbia mall adoption centers are going to have some
unexpected competition. A group of IKEA and Gap executives have decided to
open a chain of stores in malls where they can sell puppies like they've
been selling jeans and furniture.

Woof & Co. has already opened two stores in Boston malls, and plans to add
six more there this year before "going national." They say they're hoping to
carve out a niche in the "upscale market."

The company gets its puppies from Hunte Corp., a Missouri-based broker for
puppy mills. They say their breeders don't keep their dogs in the kind of
tiny cages and appalling conditions for which most puppy mills are known.
But when we called them for an interview to ask more about this, they never
returned our calls.

"We're a lifestyle store," says one of the executives in a press release.
But what kind of "lifestyle" are they selling when millions of homeless dogs
and cats are still being killed in shelters every year? The real lifestyle
stores are mall adoption centers like Furburbia and other businesses that
welcome rescue groups with adoptable animals, and where people can adopt not
just a new pet but a new way of life -- saving animals, rather than adding
to the numbers of the homeless and unwanted.

There are several animal welfare groups already coordinating efforts to
persuade Woof to re-think its plans. We'll let you know, through the Best
Friends Network office, how you can join in. It would be very good if we can
stop this effort in its tracks.

    Why open a pet store, when there are so many wonderful animals at shelters. What will happen when they decide they do not want their upscale pet. where will they go? to the shelters. We are overloaded as is. Please Please do not sell dogs. Go to a rescue
