Puppy Mill Awareness Meetup (Southeast Michigan) Message Board › MAP: Updated Michigan Hall of Shame List
The Pet Vendor (Centerline, Mi)
Started Selling Puppies Last Week
We updated our Puppy Store Hall of Shame and Watch List below. Most puppy selling stores are located in southeast Michigan (27 out of 40). I grouped the Detroit area stores at the top.
BAD NEWS: We added four new puppy stores. They are not high volume box stores like Petland and The Family Puppy, but they have unfortunately added puppies to their list of merchandise.
1) K9 Cuisine N More (Shelby)
2) The Pet Vendor (Centerline)
3) Doggie Parlor (Eastpointe)
4) Krazie Kritters (Cheboygan)
GOOD NEWS: The good news is we have made progress with some of our WORST pet stores. Pet Station in Dearborn Heights is under new management and is only selling fish after the owner was arrested and convicted of animal cruelty. Greenwood Pets & Plants, in Warren was charged with animal neglect in June, arrested in October and pending court proceedings tomorrow. Lastly, Utica Pet Supply, owners recently retired after 13 years of puppy peddling and 6 months of protests. The store is under new management, puppies are still for sale and our campaign is still on.
