Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show
So you might have heard that the 137th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is happening next week – on February 11 and 12. This year, like last, the ASPCA will have a booth at the event. This time, the ASPCA will be featuring our campaign to fight puppy mills, still a huge problem across the country. We’ll have lots of information about the sad realities of the puppy mill industry, and an opportunity for you to test your knowledge about this troubling issue. Did you know that most pet store puppies come from puppy mills? Or that many dogs sold online are also from puppy mills?
Come visit our booth and you’ll have the chance to sign our No Pet Store Puppies Pledge to not buy anything in pet stores or on websites that sell puppies—no pet food, kitty litter or even toys . If you aren’t able to visit our booth next week, take the pledge and join the fight against puppy mills at nopetstorepuppies.com.
Are you thinking about adding a dog to your family?
Make adoption your first option! You can find your very own “best in show” among the ASPCA’s adoptable animals at the ASPCA Adoption Center or a local shelter in your area. Remember, mixed breed and older dogs make just as great companions as purebred puppies, and you get to save a life to boot!
You can find our booth at Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show from 8am to 6pm at The Piers (Pier 94) located at 711 12th Avenue, NYC 10019.
