Pet Stores with Rescued Dogs for Adoption

As awareness of the connection between puppy mills and puppies sold for profit continues to grow, pet stores across the country are changing the way they do business. Instead of selling puppies who come from inhumane puppy mills, and supporting their cruel breeding practices, many stores are now partnering with local shelters and rescue groups to offer homeless pets for adoption. By offering services such as grooming and doggie daycare, and selling pet-related products, stores that have switched to this more humane model continue to be profitable.

While there are many fine product-only pet supply stores, Best Friends recognizes the businesses listed on this page for their efforts to help homeless pets by hosting mobile adoption events in their stores, or adopting out animals themselves. When you shop at these stores, please let them know that you are supporting their businesses because you appreciate their efforts to help homeless pets.

Do you know of a store that hosts dog adoptions instead of selling puppies from commercial breeders? Let us know, so we can add them to the list. Email puppymillinitiatives@bestfriends.org

Both PetCo and PetSmart stores host dog and cat adoptions.
