Thank you, Pet Land for making me understand the workings of a corporate body without scruples. One has to experience first-hand the horror of greed gone wild. This is a photo of my dog’s back after disc surgery. Howard came from Pet Land- Pet Land buys dogs from Puppy Mills.
Petland sells puppies from Puppy Mills. A large majority, including my Howard, have genetic defects and life long health problems. Howard goes in for surgery tomorrow to remove a ruptured disc. He is only three years old. I’m sorry to say I did not know about Puppy Mills three years ago when I went into Petland to buy catnip and fell in love with Howard. I worry about Howard’s brothers and sisters. How are they doing, if they have the same problems and their owners can’t afford the $6,000 dollar operation? I certainly can’t afford it either, but I can’t imagine the alternative. Howard is my family now, and Howard is, at this moment, on the floor, trembling and crying in pain, even after a heavy dose of pain meds and muscle relaxants. I have never seen an animal or person in so much pain, except for my father on the eve of his death. My guilt is fathomless. The moment I adopted Howard, another Puppy Mill dog was put in his place. I was a part of the Assembly Line of Agony. Please don’t make the same mistake. Research Puppy Mills and encourage their demise.
