Two Saturdays each month, rain or shine, Ida McCarthy can be found with a group of people protesting outside a Lombard pet store.
They’re upset, she said, because the store, and eight others throughout DuPage County, sell puppies that were bred under inhumane conditions in puppy mills.
More than three years ago, McCarthy joined a group called the Companion Animal Protection Society, which campaigns for humane protection of companion animals in pet stores and puppy mills.
