Summary:
A national pet store chain has announced it will phase out its sales of kittens and puppies.
"Our decision to end these sales was a tough one and was based on business fundamentals," said Robert Brissette, CEO of Petland.
In a media release, Brissette said more people are using online services to purchase animals, leading to a drop in sales at pet stores.
The Petland chain will continue to help families find pets through the company's Adopt-a-Pet program and its Petland Pets for Life Foundation, both of which aim to match homeless animals with good homes, said Petland officials.
