Demonstration to be held this Saturday, November 18, 2006 outside Pet's Unlimited Pet Stores


Advocates for Responsible Pet Ownership in the Halifax Regional
Municipality (ARPO) will be holding a peaceful demonstration at Pet's
Unlimited, Bayer's Lake Location on November 18th, 2006 from 12 to

This demonstration will be ongoing at the four (4) locations of Pet's
Unlimited in the HRM during the upcoming holiday season. We will be
handing out literature for the public's education about the vending of
puppy mill and back yard bred dogs as stock purchase, highlighting the
risks associated.

Yours in dogs and pets,

Annette Armitage

If you would like to become involved with this newly formed group and
are interested in ending the selling of live animals in pet stores -
or want to find out where the puppies actually come from that are sold
by the brokers - also known as pet stores - and alternatives that you
can choose instead of buying your next companion animal at a pet store
- email one of the contacts listed above!

    Dear Joan,

    Best of luck with the new group and your educational campaign.

    As always, if there's anything you want or need from, please don't hesitate to ask (or just take).

    For instance, after countless requests, we recently published a new article entitled, "Getting a Puppy?". Included are links to all the relevant information about ethically acquiring, and responsibly raising, a good canine citizen.

    You can find it at:

    (sorry I can't make the link active in your comments section)

    If possible, making a brochure similar to our "anti-BSL" ones would be a great hand out.

    Again, best of luck to you and everyone else!
