CITIPUPS HATES PUPPY MILLS!!!
The truth you need to know about the protesters in front of our store!!!

Hello, we here at Citipups have started this Web-site because in the last few years we have been bombarded and harassed by the so called "protesters" and it leaves us no choice but to defend ourselves.
We have been accused of selling puppy mill dogs, being a puppy mill and abusing our puppies, and of course anyone that knows us, knows that's not true.
We have welcomed these "protesters" into our stores time and time again, so they could see for themselves, that we only buy from reputable, licensed breeders, but of course, "career protesters" are just that, "career protesters" who go from cause to cause and have no intention of even understanding what they are protesting against.

The so called "protesters" claim that EVERY pet shop is a puppy mill, making clear to anyone that they don't understand the cause they are defending! Citipups does NOT support substandard breeding facilities and in fact partners with some of the best breeders in the country. The PROPAGANDA PICTURES the "protesters" show in front of our store are NOT from any of our facilities, they are pulled from the internet... THEY ARE MISLEADING YOU AND ARE LYING TO YOU. See for yourself... stop by one of our locations and check us out.


What is a 'Puppy Mill?" For the first time, industry trade organizations and animal welfare groups have agreed on the definition.

Citipups hosts adoptions

Citipups & Earth Angels have found homes for over 1000 rescued dogs and cats.

These activists do absolutely nothing to help any dogs who may be in need of help "now"!
Three to four times a week, Citipups Chelsea hosts "Earth Angels Canine Rescue organization" (rescuing dogs in New York for over 30 years)! Come by to help Emelinda by adopting, donating, volunteering or fostering... She and Citipups will love you for it!
These "protesters" even stand there, protesting as Earth Angels is getting rescues adopted right in front of them!!!
What do these "protesters" do to help find homes for rescues? They ask for your donations for what purpose? Think about it...  They preach the achievements of Humane Society of the United States; HSUS is NOT your local shelter... In fact, this WEALTHY national organization contributes less than two percent of its budget to animal shelters... And where do you think the rest of the money goes?

People, educate yourselves, go to   www.humanewatch.org   for the truth!

THE PROTESTERS ARE BEING SUED AS YOU READ THIS!!!

NOTE FROM CITIPUPS:

Let’s think about it! Would we sue the protesters if we really got our puppies from puppy mills?????

Any judge will obviously, order us to disclose our breeder records for the past 10 years or so! IT’S A NO-BRAINER PEOPLE !!! !!! !!! !!!

These activists and extremists
would have you believe that pet stores are the root of all evil. They claim that all breeders who sell to pet stores are “puppy mills” …therefore all pet stores should be closed down, starting with us.
Well, let's make something very clear:
We have been in business for over 24 years, we have proved to the 
community that we are honest, hard working people, and we are NOT going anywhere!
Their real agenda is to bring an end to pet ownership in this country! Can you imagine life without your best friend?

Well, these are the facts about pet stores in this country…

Read and learn the 10 REASONS this industry should be supported, not banned:
  1. PET STORES PROVIDE HEALTHY PUPPIES. A Cornell University study on the health of puppies from various sources demonstrates as a rule pet store puppies are as healthy as, or healthier than, those from any other source.
  2. PET STORES PROVIDE VETERINARY CARE.  Pet store puppies typically receive more veterinary care than dogs from other sources.  DVM/VPI Insurance Group, the largest provider of animal health insurance, reduced its premiums for pet store puppies and kittens by as much as 22% compared to those for animals from other sources.  Why?  Pet Store puppies receive far more veterinary attention during the first 12 weeks of age than any other puppies and, as a result, have fewer claims.PET STORES AND THEIR BREEDERS ARE REGULATED AT THE STATE AND FEDERAL LEVEL.
  3. PET STORES AND THEIR BREEDERS MUST COMPLY WITH FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL LAWS including animal care standards, veterinary treatment and housing requirements, among other regulations.
  4. PET STORES PROVIDE CONSUMER PROTECTION AND SATISFACTION. Pet stores are an accountable, traceable source for pets.  We provide warranties on the dogs we sell, backed up by specific legal requirements.  These laws do not necessarily apply to other sources of animals, so pet store customers enjoy greater protection.
  5. PET STORES HELP OWNERS FIND THE BEST BREED FOR THEIR LIFESTYLE.  Do you have allergies and require a non-shedding breed?  Does your lifestyle mean you need a small or large dog, an active or less active breed? Pet stores typically offer a wide choice of breeds that may not be available to you from shelters, rescues or private breeders.
  6. PET STORES ADDRESS DECLINING PET POPULATIONS.  The goal of these activists is to have all pet stores closed and for you to adopt from shelters only.  However, with mandatory spay & neuter laws, shelter populations will thankfully continue to shrink. If consumers are limited to a shelter-only population, where will pets come from in the future???
  7. PET STORES ARE NOT THE SOURCE OF UNWANTED PETS IN SHELTERS.  The National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy report found that 96% of relinquished pets came from somewhere other than a pet store, and 70% of the time the reasons owners relinquish a dog or cat to a shelter could have been prevented with consumer education.
  8. PET STORES ADD TO THE LOCAL ECONOMY. CITIPUPS and other reputable pet stores are established businesses in the community.  These legitimate businesses are self-sustaining and support the economy.
  9. PET STORE BANS CAN OPEN UNDERGROUND MARKETS.  Preventing responsible pet stores from selling pets opens the door to an underground unregulated market. Internet sellers and back-yard breeders will have a field day with innocent dog lovers.
  10. PET STORE BANS DO NOT ADDRESS ANIMAL WELFARE ISSUES.   Those who truly care about the welfare of animals work to raise standards of care and eliminate pet providers who don’t maintain acceptable standards.  Blanket pet sale bans do not advance the standards of care for pets. 

A NOTE TO THESE ACTIVISTS:
GO AFTER THE REAL PUPPY MILLS, BACK-YARD BREEDERS AND INTERNET RIP-OFF ARTISTS…
GO TO THE ROUGH AREAS OF BROOKLYN AND THE BRONX WHERE ABUSED PITBULLS ARE BEING BRED IN BASEMENTS AND 4 WEEK OLD UNWEANED PUPPIES ARE SOLD ON THE STREET FOR CASH…
THEY ARE THE PROBLEM, NOT US!
