Please join us to stop puppy mills! Business is way way down at this location, let's keep it up! We have plenty of signs and brochures, we need you! Note: it's on Sunday this time. Also, he is opening up another location at Naperville Crossing, 95th & 59 in Naperville. We'll be planning a protest for his grand opening when we find out the date. Let's hope one of his other stores is closing. Thank you all for your continued support!

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.

Thanks to the CAPS team in Chicago, we continue to get media coverage and expose HIP as a puppy mill front (the company transports puppies from Iowa and Missouri mills and for the most part, HIP does its own brokering). The distemper outbreak linked to HIP, which received extensive media coverage, is yet another example of how businesses like these are not only inhumane but also detrimental to the community. CAPS has investigated many of the breeders and brokers supplying puppies to HIP.
