Arizona Pet Store / Puppy Mill Connection

We don’t buy from puppy mills.”

“All of our puppies come from small, local breeders.”

“We visit every breeder we buy from.”

 

We have all heard these sentences come from the mouths of pet store owners and their employees. They paint this beautiful picture of puppies running by a pond and parents frolicking in the fresh, green grass… Sadly, 99% of the time that is a bold faced lie. The pet store owners know it, the employees might know it- but the customer is completely in the dark.

This is why we are here.

Arizona doesn’t have many puppy mills that we know of… This is due to the fact that Arizona has no regulations or standards of care regarding commercial breeders. You read that right. Arizona has no state licensing,  no standards of care and no enforcing agency. The one thing that Arizona did right was to require pet stores  to name the breeder supplying each puppy that they have for sale. That made our research a lot easier. 

Bailing Out Benji is a small nonprofit that started in Ames, Iowa and now has volunteer teams all over the country who are dedicated to raising awareness about the puppy mill industry, this includes Arizona.

So what is the truth? With the pet stores claiming they don’t buy from breeders with any “direct” violations and posting clean inspections on their websites, it looks like they are being very open. What is the public supposed to believe when the nice store owner and employees paint such a believable and beautiful picture? Again… This is why we are here.

Volunteers from Bailing Out Benji devote their free time to researching puppy mills to create puppy mill maps for the worst states, as well as raise awareness about notorious pet stores and breeding operations with huge violations. This includes obtaining CVI data (Certificates of Veterinary Inspections) and making those reports public. 

To make this easier, we will be breaking our article down by each pet store and connecting them to the various puppy mills they use.

This research is extremely costly, please consider making a donation to help us continue exposing the puppy mill industry. Every dollar helps us!

There you have it. Some of the most popular pet stores in Arizona connecting them to some large scale puppy mills across the Midwest. Please, if there is a pet store selling puppies near you RUN don’t walk away! Our favorite thing to say is “Puppies in the Store, Walk out the Door” because pet store puppies ARE puppy mill puppies. Don’t buy the lies. No matter what the pet store tries to sell you.
