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…  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.

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.

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 learn more about the puppy mills in your location, you can also go to our interactive website and search engine

NOTE:

-Before an animal is transported out of state, a veterinarian, accredited by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), must examine the animal for signs of “infectious, contagious or communicable disease” and, if no disease is found, sign the certificate for approval to transport.

To mj this easier, we will be breaking our research down alphabetically by each pet store and connecting them to the various facilities they use. All of this information has come from the Department of Agriculture and the USDA.

All of the breeders listed as associated with the pet stores sold puppies or kittens to them in the years 2018 and 2019. 

For any questions regarding the information presented below, please visit us on Facebook or contact us through the form below.

There you have it. Some of the most popular pet stores in Florida and proof from the Florida Department of Agriculture and the USDA connecting them to some of the most notorious puppy mills in the United States. 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.
