Are Petland Franchisees Selling Puppies From Puppy Mills?

(This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy).

I really hope not. My daughter and I used to visit our local Petland franchise store to kind of check things out. We had heard rumors of Petland's alleged practice of buying their puppies from those nasty puppy mills. (In Ohio, some of these alleged puppy mills are located right in the heart of Amish country.) Nice.


A federal court in Arizona has just issued a ruling allowing a lawsuit to
proceed against Petland, Inc.
based on allegations that the retail
chain is routinely selling unhealthy puppy mill puppies to unsuspecting
consumers. Petland is the nation's largest chain of pet stores that
sells puppy mill dogs, according to The Humane Society website.
