ARC Digs Up the Dirt on Minnesota Petland Stores
As part of our Minnesotans Exposing Petland Campaign, we recently poured through hundreds of Certificates of Veterinary Inspection (CVI) documents obtained through a Minnesota Data Practices Act request at the Minnesota Board of Animal Health.
We uncovered definitive evidence that contrary to Petland’s claims that they don’t buy from puppy mills, both the Shakopee and St. Paul Petland stores purchase puppies from large brokers and breeders (most recently, Heritage Puppies and David Horning in Iowa and Twin Lawn Kennel in Wisconsin). From Yorkies to Puggles to Shelties to Chihuahua’s, hundreds of animals were shipped from out of state to the Petland stores in Minnesota. The Humane Society of the United States calls Heritage “a huge puppy breeder-broker” and said that in a recent USDA inspection report, “the federal inspector noted 458 adult breeding dogs and 220 puppies on the property.”
The national Petland campaign is going strong and Minnesota is one of the most active groups. Let’s keep setting the standard for the rest of the country. Let Petland know you don’t support their inhumane business practices. Join our peaceful demonstrations at the Shakopee and St. Paul Petland stores. Find all the details on our website calendar and on the Minnesotans Exposing Petland Facebook page.
If you can’t make it, consider donating to help with Petland outreach. Just twenty $10 donors will pay for printing more Petland Brochures and six $25 donors will pay for more eye-catching signs. A huge thanks to the donors who helped us go to the Twin Cities Pet Expo with the Petland campaign!
