Bye-Bye Furever: Another Puppy Mill Pet Store Closes In Rockford
Another puppy mill pet store in Rockford, Illinois officially closed their gates and residents couldn't be more thrilled to say bye-bye!
Usually, we would be sad to see a business shut down in town, but not when the company operates with inhumane breeding facilities. Remember Petland? When they shut down in Rockford, everyone was ecstatic. Now, it's Furry Babies' turn to go!
Furry Babies has been around for over a decade in Rockford, but it definitely could've gotten shut down sooner than later. It took this many years to get a puppy mill pet store out of business?
Facebook users had a lot to say about the store closing.
"Sadly the fastest strategy would have been everyone to boycott. It could have been shut in 30 days." - Pam R.
"Whooo hooo! The damage they did to pups as well as the scams they perpetrated on the elderly were disgusting." - Crystal F.
"And in case you don't know, there's a new law after 1-1-2024 that states you can no longer finance dogs or cats in Illinois. Let's hope their other locations also close" - Ida C.
Shoutout to Kathy and everyone else who has been doing the work to put an end to puppy mill pet stores. You're angels!
Now that Furry Babies is gone, what do you think will occupy that location at the mall?
