Companion Animal Protection Society protests pet shop in Lisle, Illinois for selling puppy mill dogs.

LISLE, IL, February 2, 2013 – Local pet shop Puppy Parlor advertises on their website huge store-wide sales but they exclude puppies. They find other ways to entice buyers with already low prices on dogs. The problem: selling pets from puppy mills might be a cost cutting move, but it comes with a high collateral price.

They all dealt with animal cruelty and they all died in the 129th General Assembly over the past twelve months!
