A group of about 140 protesters spent two hours this afternoon in front of the I Heart Puppy Shop in Corona del Mar, a business they claim supports puppy mills because its dogs don’t come solely from animal shelters.
“We do not want to put them out of business,” protester Carole Davis told the crowd. “The day they go humane, we will no longer be protesting — we will be shopping!”
