I meant more of rescues offering money to byb's for dogs that are in deplorable conditions. One rescue brought in this maltese b*tch that was only 2 and had 3 litters already, she was in such dystocia (trouble giving birth) to these poorly bred over grown pups that the owner (and I use the term loosely) gave her a c-section himself...and...well...not to be too graphic, they paid to get the momma dog from him and the puppies just to save their lives.
But I truly do understand your point as well, by paying for them we're encouraging them, but there would need to be such a massive boycott to make a difference that it's just not feasible. And I have seen some great big box stores with wonderful healthy looking bettas, so it's workers not policy.
