Animal Advocates of Arizona (AAAZ) Message Board › Victory: Colorado Pet Store Closed; 22 Charges Filed!
When PETA was informed that Jessie's Pet Paradise, a Castle Rock, Colorado, pet store, was selling sick puppies, the organization worked closely with her to make closing the store a priority. PETA assisted her in organizing demonstrations, collecting signatures from people who had bought sick puppies from the store and publicizing her efforts.
After a demonstration against Jessie's Pet Paradise sparked the interest of the local media, a television station conducted an undercover investigation at the store and a U.S. Department of Agriculture inspector discovered a potentially deadly parvovirus outbreak and no appropriate isolation area for sick puppies.
The owner of Jessie's Pet Paradise was summoned to court, charged with 15 counts of knowingly selling sick animals and seven counts of failure to quarantine, and Jessie's Pet Paradise has been permanently closed!
