It is actually not legal, it's soliciting. But people often get away with it, unless of course someone tells walmart they're doing that. I've never seen it at my walmart but I know people that have at other walmarts.
I would never buy from a pet store. Unless of course- PETco and petsmart take in shelter animals, I'm fine with that. I'd never support LPS's scummy business- all those pups are either back yard bred or from puppy mills and I'm not going to support that crap. No reputable breeder would ever put their pups in a pet store- reputables don't breed for money. They breed to make quality dogs to be examples of the breed.
Sorry i still continue about dogs. I am 100% agree with you. But it really hurts. I am petrified to go to the pet stores to see betta in low water and those dogs. They look right in your eyes. It is so heartbreaking. I just get physically sick and depressed. If i could help those dogs ...
I adopted the dog from the kill shelter. She was 2.5 years old. Appeared really nice , cleaver, love children dog.
Vary sad to see all those animals get abused. Don't understand people :(
