Puppy Mill Awareness of SE Michigan is a grassroots organization dedicated to ending commercial breeding "puppy mills" and protecting families from puppy peddlers, pet stores and bad breeders by lobbying for stronger laws, setting up information booths, completing research studies and launching pet store campaigns.

Don't be fooled by common claims made by pet stores when pushing their puppies. Despite what they may tell you, pet stores do sell puppy mill puppies. Michigan has approximately 50 puppy-selling pet stores. Go to "Shameful Pet Stores" to find out why they made the "Hall of Shame" list. 

Join us to form a Puppy Mill Awareness Human Chain at the entrance of the Twelve Oaks Mall on September 27 from 4-5:30. RSVP on Facebook or our Meetup Event.

One of the Largest Puppy Brokers Shuts Its Doors!

I love hearing news like this and needed to share it with those that are as impatient as I am for the commercial puppy industry to collapse. This is an excellent sign. Lambriar, Inc has shipped to both Pet Station (Dearborn Heights, Mi) and Greenwood (Warren) over the last few years. 

One of the Largest Puppy Brokers Shuts Its Doors!

Guest blog written by Cori Menkin, Senior Director of the ASPCA’s Puppy Mills Campaign.

Lambriar, Inc., one of the largest puppy brokers in the United States, has announced that it is closing its kennel doors for good. Puppy brokers like Lambriar are middlemen, buying dogs from puppy mills and distributing them to pet stores throughout the country. Brokers are an important cog in the wheel of the cruel and inhumane puppy mill industry. 

When asked why Lambriar is closing its doors, owner Roger Lambert told Kansas newspaper  The Belleville Telescope “When you couple the bad economy with increasing rules and regulations and increased pressure from animal rights activists, well, it just got too hard.” 

We have been working hard to shed light on the link between puppy mills and pet store puppies, and it seems to be working! As more and more people take our No Pet Store Puppies pledge not to buy anything in stores that sell puppies, the industry will continue to feel the ripple effects and be forced to make changes. 

If you haven’t taken the No Pet Store Puppies pledge yet, please do! And please be sure to share it with your friends so that one day, puppy mill cruelty will be a distant memory.
