Not everyone can participate in Petland protests, but still want to educate the community about puppy mills, and why stores like Petland should be banned from selling puppies. We urge everyone to help by contacting Fox 2 news (KTVI) by phone at 314-213-7831 (news tips) or e-mail the news organization at KTVINews@tvstl.com. Not sure what to say? Below find some factual information. • Petland is a franchise that buys and sells puppies who are very often ill or suffer from serious chronic medical conditions. • Petland profits by selling puppies to consumers for outrageous prices to naïve customers. The cost of a puppy typically ranges from $2000 to $8000. For this reason, consumers use Petland credit cards with significantly high interest rates, increasing overall profits for Petland by thousands of dollars more than the cost of the dog itself. • Petland’s practices put local communities at risk of serious illnesses such as Campylobacter. The last documented outbreak (that I was able to find online) was in 2017. At least 39 people across several states became sick, including residents of Missouri. More than 20% required hospitalization. A Missouri Petland was involved. *HSUS, Bailing Out Benji, Harley's Dream , and dogsuncaged.com are resources which publish information supporting these statements.
