    consumers: the people who buy the puppies
    Add to that list, registered breeders under suppliers.

    Therefore, each of these needs to be addressed in order to solve the problem.

    Basically, supply = demand. If there is no demand for puppies in pet shops then the BYB's and puppy mills won't be able to offload their pups at shops anymore. But of course then we have the problem of them trying to get rid of them else where. But at least the easy avenue of pet shops is cut off.

    Exactly how is that stopping the sale of animals in pet shops will increase dumping/no. of dogs in pounds/shelters?

    Oh and Anne, poor poor little Cookie - how heartbreaking!!!
    While I understand that people say you need to 'stop' the demand, you can't and you won't in my opinion. Meanwhile, while everyone races around trying to close down pet shops (or stop them selling animals) thousands of animals are being abused, held in deplorable conditions, bred from till their death and killed in our pounds becuase no-one is looking at the source.

    Therefore, in my view, you are far better off getting to the source of the problem and ensure that the animals are cared for and sold appropriately.

    Why don't we all go into pet shops and give prospective puppy buyers an info sheet on why not to buy from pet shops - you'd probably get kicked out though lol

    Educate the masses. Seriously how are people going to learn about puppy farms without actively researching it? You can't act on what you don't know exists!! It's soooo frustrating

    Why not just hand out flyers to the general public or take out ads in the paper to educate people about puppy farms?

    Instead of sending letters to pollies about pet shops, why aren't we sending letters to pollies about bybs and puppy farms?

    Plus there's ebay these days. Lol.

    My neighbour has two BC's. One came from a breeder back when they lived in Qld. The male he got off ebay last year for $50. The male is possibly the most beautiful BC I've ever set eeyes on, and temperament wise he's so brilliant they have offered to loan him to me on the weekends until my puppy arrives. Hubby is putting a gate up between the fences now as I type.

    Oops, off-topic again and rambling. Sorry. He's just sooooo gorgeous!
