On Saturday, November 14, the Companion Animal Protection Society and Animal Advocates Alliance celebrated the conversion of Aquarium & Pet Center, Santa Monica, CA to a humane pet store that offers animals for adoption. The puppy mill dogs still in the store were available for adoption on Saturday in order to make room for dogs from L.A. Animal Services, the county shelter system. See the Youtube video:
