Group Description

Updated September 14, 2014

Yahoo group for local and national campaigns to end puppy and kitten sales at Petland stores, and thereby hasten the end of the puppy mills and kitten factories that supply Petland. We prefer that stores (and corporate Petland) stop selling companion animals and partner with rescues and shelters for adoptions. But if they refuse, we will close their stores through protests and public education.

Petland Going Down grew from Texans Exposing Petland, an organization founded in 2008 to end puppy and kitten sales in the five Dallas-Ft. Worth area Petland stores. The Lewisville store closed in April 2010, the Arlington store closed in April 2011, and the Plano store closed in May 2014. We will also close the Dallas and Frisco stores.

We are joined by numerous other local Petland campaigns around the US, so we can share successes and strategies, experiences and ideas. In this way, we can help one another take down Petland stores wherever they are. At least 80 Petland stores have closed in the US from January 2008-September 2014, so this campaign is shaking the foundation of the Petland empire.

We welcome action alerts, news updates, personal experiences, local protest reports, and all other information relevant for our campaign. We will generally not post topics unrelated to the Petland campaign, but posts related to similar campaigns are acceptable. To avoid problems and distractions, all posts are moderated. Please -- no spam, no flaming, no rudeness.

Our goal is nothing less than the end of puppy and kitten sales at every Petland store in America. The motto that drives us is: "The difference between winning and losing is quitting." We must persevere, never quit or compromise, and outlast the Petland corporate machine. It's happening all over the country, and we will win.

Welcome to the campaign. Now let's join hands and take out the Petland Death Star.
