Where did all the puppies go?
On Feb 23rd, Illinois pet stores can no longer work with licensed and inspected professional breeders. Only 4% of dogs sold in the USA are sold through pet stores. Pet stores are the only source of puppies in IL that are licensed, regulated, & required to provide a warranty with every puppy. For this reason, we work with licensed & regulated breeders of the highest standards only.
Despite this, animal rights groups have convinced legislators that requiring pet stores to only source puppies from nonprofit rescues and shelters will close puppy mills. We contend that puppy mills exist in the unlicensed and unregulated world of dog breeders almost exclusively and do not cross paths with our pet store. Meanwhile, there are no restrictions on shelters or rescues that purchase dogs direct from breeders or from dog auctions. There are no restrictions on puppy mills, unlicensed or licensed breeders, that sell direct to the public. This misguided legislation will have no impact whatsoever on the targeted puppy mills yet will have significant impact to our valued employees.
Please reach out to your local House Representative or State Senator and tell them you support House Bill 4643 to protect pets, protect pet stores, and protect your right to choose where your next pet comes from.

Our pups’ desire for mental stimulation is just as strong as it is for physical stimulation. For many dog owners, our 9:00 — 5:00 job prevents us from spending forty-plus hours a week with our pup. Over the course of one year, that’s over 2,000 hours. Imagine being home alone with no one to talk to or interact with for that long? That is not even taking into consideration the hundreds of other hours we are away from home for other responsibilities. A solution that millions of American dog owners found to help keep their fur-legged friends happy is doggy …Read More
Dogs with an allergy have an immune system that overreacts and produces antibodies to substances that it would normally tolerate.
