*The following is from the Humane Society of the United States:*


Help us educate consumers about the puppy mill-pet store connection this

holiday season. Please attend this pre-holiday demonstration at Petland in

Fairfax, VA *we need your help to make this a successthe biggest and best



*THIS COMING* *SATURDAY*, *December 19th, 1-3pm*.

We know the holiday season is hectic and everyone has a to-do list a mile

long, but if you could donate just two hours of your time to spread the word

about puppy mills, this pre-holiday demonstration is the time to do it.

Also, please spread the word to friends, family and any local animal groups

you know we need a huge turn-out and this is a great opportunity to have

our message heard.

Annually, the highest percentage of puppies are purchased during the

holidays. Please come join us in asking Petland to stop selling puppies and

support shelter adoptions instead.

Get a *free* Stop Puppy Mills backpack (while supplies last) and coffee/hot

chocolate will be provided all you need to bring is your enthusiasm!



*Date:* Saturday, December 19, 2009

*Time:* 1pm to 3pm

*Location:* Outermost sidewalk of strip mall on Pickett Road, *near Petland,

9404 Main St. Fairfax, VA 22031** **(Pickett Shopping Center)

**Directions:* From the Beltway, get off at Exit 52, Route 236 in Annandale,

going WEST toward Fairfax. The first mall on the right (near sign for

Einstein Bagels) is Pickett Shopping Center. Turn right at the traffic light

onto Pickett Road. Well be on the public sidewalk at the next traffic

light, right side of the road, near the wine store. Please pass the strip

mall where Petland resides and park at the next mall over, on the left side

*Additional info: In spite of all the recent well-deserved bad publicity,

our local Fairfax Petland is still getting puppies from puppy mill brokers

Hunte Corp. and Perfect Puppies. *

* *

*Huntes August 5, 2008 inspection report showed NUMEROUS violations of the

USDAs extremely minimal space requirements. *

* *

*An inspection report for Perfect Puppies showed that in 2008, they obtained

approximately 516 puppies from hobby breeders, while in reality these

breeders had more than 3 breeding female dogs and were operating illegally,

without licenses or inspections. *

* *

*Petland gets puppies from PUPPY MILLS. So please come on out to the Fairfax

Petland this Saturday and encourage people to boycott Petland and adopt a

homeless animal instead. Thanks!*
