Petland Protest in St. Paul

"Minnesota is among the top producers of puppies and kittens in the United States.

Due to no State licensing of the dog and cat breeding industry, it is difficult to report the total number of breeders in Minnesota. It is fair to say, however, that there are primarily two types of breeders: Reputable breeders and inhumane breeders.

Inhumane dog and cat breeders in Minnesota, through ignorance or greed, create serious harm and suffering to animals in the pursuit of profit.

Minnesota has no state laws to regulate the dog and cat breeding industry." For more info visit the AnimalFolksMN website.

Come and help us send a message to Petland that selling puppies and kittens from mills is inhumane and cruel. Supporting rescues by promoting adoption is the best option! The demo is peaceful and legal and everyone is welcome.

Small Dog Rescue, The Animal Rights Coalition, the Coalition for Animal Rights Education, and In Defense of Animals is sponsoring a peaceful, legal protest of the St. Paul Petland store. Please consider attending (weather is supposed to be nice!). The last protest, of a Petland Store in Shakopee was very well-organized, and we received a lot of support from folks driving / walking by!
