For those who haven’t seen our photos yet, we have been working with Animal Charity Humane Society. We’ve been photographing their dogs in our studio to try to help them find homes. Professional photos really make a big difference. We get so excited every time we get an email from them telling us about another dog who got adopted that we photographed!
Here are the dogs who still need homes. Please contact Animal Charity at 330.788.1064 or visit their website: http://www.animalcharityofohio.org/ to see all of the animals available for adoption.
Now we’d like to talk about something very important to us. We want to give some information about puppies from pet stores. We want to explain why you should NEVER purchase a puppy from these stores. These stores get their puppies from puppy mills. If you are unfamiliar with puppy mills please use Google to get some information. We don’t want this post to be too depressing, so we won’t go into too much detail. Just know that these puppies come from dogs whose only purpose is to breed. They are not viewed as pets. They are used only for breeding and the puppies are sold to pet stores over and over again. They live in deplorable conditions. We know a few people who have gotten their dogs from pet stores and all of them have health issues because of improper breeding.
So no matter how cute the puppy, do NOT purchase a puppy from a pet store. This only causes more torture and mistreatment of animals as these puppies come from mills. If you buy a puppy from a pet store, you are supporting these actions and causing harm to more animals and keeping this terrible cycle going. Please do your research and adopt from a reputable rescue. Any breed your your heart desires is likely available and probably in a foster home waiting or soon being euthanized at a shelter. If you are insistent on getting a dog from a breeder, please make sure the breeder is reputable.
If you’re looking to add a furry friend to your family then please don’t shop, but adopt.
