Paris Hilton Enrages Animal Rights Group

PARIS HILTON has been slammed by an animal rights group for her growing brood of dogs - accusing her of encouraging others to buy pets as accessories. Animal rights campaigners People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) believe Hilton's recent acquisition of Jimi Hendrix (a Chihuahua) and Cinderella (a Yorkie) from a pet store in Beverly Hills are setting bad examples for young fans to follow. And now PETA president Ingrid Newkirk has penned an open letter to the star, writing, "Perhaps you (Paris) and other vacuous stars need to tattoo 'Don't buy while pound pups die' on your foreheads to remind each other of that home truth." Hilton's latest purchases brings her total number of pets to a reported 25.

My problem is with Paris Hilton is not so much how many animals she has - are they all dogs by the way? or does she have small pets that live in colonies? Maybe some chickens or something? Anyway to get back to my concern: I am concerned that she bought these dogs from a pet store. It is a well known fact that many pet stores are outlets for puppy mills. And, even if they assure you that the dogs come from reputable breeders - why would a reputable breeder be selling through an outlet? The best strategy is NOT to buy dogs from pet stores or over the internet. If you are looking for a puppy, no matter where you live, I am sure there is a breeder close to you. Until people STOP buying this way puppy mills will survive. Log onto HSUS if you want to get the lowdown on puppy mills.
