Motorists driving along Route 25 in Aquebogue Sunday afternoon beeped their car horns in support of a puppy-mill protest organized in front of the pet store Puppy Experience, where several animal rights advocates held signs and handed out pamphlets.
Barbara Dennihy of the Companion Animal Protection Society, a national animal rights organization based in Massachusetts, said her group has been protesting in front of Puppy Experience from 1 to 4 p.m. every weekend for the past few months because it believes the pet store sells puppies obtained from substandard dog-breeding facilities known as “puppy mills.”
