After two years of weekly protests, the Petland store in Austin closed its doors in July 2010. In December 2010, the Austin City Council passed an ordinance prohibiting the sale of puppies and kittens in stores.
There is a group in Austin called Protest Petland -- they were successful in getting the store closed.  They are now protesting the Georgetown, TX Petland store.

I meant to add that Jerry and Pumpkin were both abandoned at catteries when their humans died, or just stopped paying their boarding fees.  They became MY sweethearts on July 3 this year.

Some pet stores do let rescue groups bring dogs, cats, rabbits in for adoptions.  (Kittens and puppies, too.) You just have to check them out first.  Stores advertising AKC registered puppies, are selling ones bred in puppy mills under horrible conditions...and there are kitten mills, too.

 

I do some volunteer work for a little local newspaper that is dedicated to closing down disreputable breeders, hoarders, stores that sell puppy mill offspring, and trying to make Los Angeles a "No Kill" city.  It's kinda difficult when so many people are too stupid to spay/neuter their pets.  (Or  "gangsta" boys think it's macho to have an intact pit bull.)

Rescuing is also good...all my cats were abandoned by someone else. Actually I haven't gotten a kitten in years b/c there are so many adult cats in need of a home.

Sk8eycat -- that is good advise.  We all should adopt an animal instead of breeding or buying the animal at the pet store.

That sounds hilarious.  Hope you took a picture.  : )

I had a cat who one day sat for hours and hours with a checker on his head...

Sk8eycat, I will have to check on that Cats in Sinks website and Maru's videos.  Yes, Prog Rock Girl, http://www.stuffonmycat.com is still around -- I just checked it out -- thanks for the tip. : )
