Toledo Says No to The Family Puppy
If you have been following our facebook site, you have already learned that The Family Puppy is opening their sixth store in Toledo at the Westfield Franklin Park mall. Yes, this is bad news.
But the good news is The Ohio Coalition of Dog Advocates sprang into action immediately and are working hard to block the opening and educate the public. The store likely did not expect such a huge response. There are over 100 people attending a protest this Saturday with full media cover expected!

It is unclear as to why the store choose to go out-of-state, but we know there are plenty of large breeders in Ohio to service the store (less travel time) and maybe Michigan malls are not renewing leases after years of protesting. We have held over 150 protests! Michigan is a very unfriendly place for puppy stores, not only with protests but local animal control offices are now starting regular inspections.
