Arlington Heights pet store wants exemption from puppy mill ban »

Message from CAPS Illinois Director Ida McCarthy:

"If you want to see where Berning really gets his dogs, please visit our website, www.caps-web.org and look up Steve Kruse in Iowa. There are over 1000 dogs at this facility. He sold 4770 puppies last year. With this much volume, it’s quite obvious that these are factory farmed dogs. There is a class action lawsuit pending with this chain. Please don’t buy the lie.”

Message from CAPS Illinois Director Ida McCarthy:
'What better way to spend a gorgeous day outside? I can't say enough how many people are so receptive to us at this location! We met a man who spent $15,000 on vet bills for a dog he bought from HIP years ago. The dog has been dead many years, but he just finished paying the vet bills. Unbelievable and so sad. Thank you everyone who came out today. Not one dog was sold while we were there.”
