Join us for a peaceful demonstration to stop puppy mills! We have plenty of signs and brochures, we need you! Orland Park is considering humane legislation, let's show them our support! Please do not park in the strip mall, park on the side streets. Thank you!


Happiness is Pets (HIP) is a chain with five stores in the Chicago area with more than 25 years of selling puppy mill dogs. CAPS is currently sponsoring regular protests in two of their locations and working with a Chicago law firm on a consumer class action lawsuit. CAPS has received numerous complaints through our online complaint form from customers who purchased sick and dying puppies.

CAPS has investigated many of the breeders and brokers supplying puppies to HIP.
