Listen to Deborah Howard's Radio PSA

Dahli Brandt bought a sick puppy from Barkworks and she filed a complaint with the Companion Animal Protection Society. Thank you to Macerich and the Irvine Company for making the right decisions. Now if only the Petland chain in the U.S. would follow the decision of Petland Canada with 37 stores to go humane, which followed the decision of PJ's, another Canadian chain to go humane.

Publication/Event date: 2011-10-11

Publication name: Global Animal
Summary:
Global Animal just received news that shopping center developer Macerich is banning sales of live animals in more than 70 malls across the US. This new humane policy designed to break the puppy mill business chain is taking effect nationwide within 30 days. Macerich confirmed that they will not renew the leases of existing pet stores that sell animals and in their place, are opening humane stores offering adoptions of rescued pets.
Some of the high profile shopping malls include Los Angeles’ Westside Pavilion, which is opening a rescue store this month in association with the nonprofit Friends of LA Shelters, Scottsdale’s Fashion Square, Chesterfield Towne Center in Richmond, Virginia, and Santa Monica Place.
