Black Saturday - Boycott Barkworks

Thanksgiving weekend join the APRL, BOYCOTT BARKWORKS PET STORES and dedicated animal welfare activists across Southern California as we protest Barkworks Pet Stores yet again for their role in supporting puppy mills and taking adoption chances away from shelter animals.

The weekend following Thanksgiving is a nightmare for puppy mill dogs! More puppies are sold at this time then any other time of the year which means the parents of these puppies, stuck in midwest mills, continue to suffer unimaginable abu
...
se all in the name of good ol' commerce.

And the Mission Viejo, Barkworks? This store is the WORST of the WORST!

At our MV protest last month we had several people tell us they had bought sickly dogs (and cats!) from this awful pet store chain that later died. The owners DO NOT CARE! THEY NEED TO BE STOPPED!

Since Los Angeles recently banned pet sales in pet stores we are concentrating our efforts on this store, the one that gets the most customer complaints.

Please come out and spend 2 hours of your day helping the pups and educating the mall customers. We will have fliers to hand out and posters to hold. Or better yet, make some home made posters that really get your message across! Please no profanity, but anything else goes.

Meet INSIDE the mall, in front of the Barkworks store, at 12PM! They are on the bottom floor close to the escalator.

PLEASE NOTE: FOLLOWING RULES IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR THIS EVENT. WE ARE BEING GRACIOUSLY SUPPORTED BY THE APRL AND THE ONLY WAY WE CAN GET IN THE MALL IS TO PROMISE NO ENGAGEMENT OF CUSTOMERS AND/OR BLOCKING STORE FRONTS. REST ASSURED BARKWORKS WILL BE TAPING US AND WE WILL BE TAPING THEM. NO MATTER HOW TEMPTED YOU ARE TO TALK OR YELL AT A CUSTOMER OR BARKWORKS MANAGER, IF YOU DO WE WILL HAVE TO ASK YOU TO LEAVE PEACEFULLY. WE HAVE TWO MORE PROTESTS PLANNED THRU THE HOLIDAYS AND NEED TO MAKE SURE THIS ONE COMES OFF WITHOUT A HITCH! WE WILL HAVE FLIERS TO HAND OUT TO PEOPLE ASK YOU WHY YOU ARE PROTESTING.
