Puppy Town

CAPS now has a presence in Sarasota, Florida where CAPS President Deborah Howard attended New College of Florida. Puppy Town, which “offers over 50 different breeds to play with and choose from” has stores in Sarasota and Tampa. The stores obtain puppies from Missouri-based The Hunte Corporation, and breeders in the Midwest. A CAPS investigator worked undercover at Hunte for six months and investigated some of their breeders (links to both documentaries).   Puppy Town also obtains puppies from an unlicensed Internet breeder/seller in Georgia. Consumers who purchased sick Puppy Town puppies from this breeder have filed complaints. CAPS held a protest against Puppy Town in April 2012 and will hold another one soon.
