Summary:
As many know, Companion Animal Protection Society (CAPS) of Chicago, protests the Puppy Parlor in Lisle on daily basis. The following is a short video of the backroom of Puppy Parlor with pictures taken from the Department of Agriculture. It's quite disturbing, but this is why the CAPS group is out at Ogden and Main in Lisle, on a daily basis to stop the abuse of the poor dogs and educate the public regarding puppy mills. Puppy Parlor was in the top 100 worst puppy mills in America by the Humane Society of the United States. Puppy Parlor was the only store in the country on the list. Please see the link below:
