A documentary crew was the latest to pay attention to the Puppies of Westport store. And as usual, the attention is for their involvement in the puppy mill business.
More than 20 protesters turned out to fill the roadside in front of the store. Members of the Westport Coalition Against Puppy Mills were interviewed at length.
Also interviewed were local residents who purchased pet store puppies and found out after the fact. They incurred giant vet bills and experienced a multitude of problems in dealing with the store.
Thanks to all who turned out. And thanks for the MANY honks of support from motorists!
Thanks also to The Norwalk Hour newspaper for it's coverage.
Meanwhile, we continue to receive reports of people buying sick puppies from this store and others like it. Everything from parasites and lung infections to serious eye conditions.
Here's the press release on the documentary too!
