Dear Senator,

Puppies sold in pet stores overwhelmingly come from puppy mills. This not only causes enormous suffering for dogs and puppies but also often causes financial hardship and heartbreak for pet store customers. At a time when so many families are struggling, they should not be preyed upon by pet stores with misleading sales tactics, sick puppies sales, and financing with shockingly high-interest rates hidden in the small print just because they want to add a new pet to their family.

Most successful pet stores in Texas--both large chains and small shops--profit from selling products and in-demand services, not from puppy sales. Pet stores currently selling puppies can transition to a more humane business model and remain profitable.
