Barkworks Sells Puppy Mill Pets: Lawsuit

Categories: Grrranimals

A pet store chain with two Orange County shops sold puppies supplied by a puppy mill, alleges a class-action lawsuit filed by a Los Angeles law firm.

The complaint alleges puppy breeds prone to illness and other health woes are being sold by Barkworks, which has stores in Brea and Mission Viejo.

Barkworks claims it gets pets from reputable professional breeders.

The suit was filed on behalf of five puppy owners who claim otherwise.

I Heart Puppies in Corona del Mar has been, well, dogged by similar puppy-mill allegations recently, leading to protests like the one shown below:



Sounds like Barkworks better brace for the same.

People want puppies their are no rescue puppies.why should I rescue someones rejected pet when they gave it away because of biting or bad behavior? What about all the cows you have to kill to save all these dogs? What about the pigs being killed? We have to take care of other dumb people's mistake of not getting your pet fixed. Yes I want to save the world too but when it comes to what pet you want back off, there is agruments that can go both ways. I had a bred cat and an orphan cat,the bought animal was the best pret in the world! The rescue cat bit me,my kids,my friends,was not such a good pet just no telling.

And the walls FINALLY come tumbling down on these sleazy puppy mill fronts! Thank God for activists bringing this barbaric form of animal breeding to the forefront. There will be a day in the not too distant future where puppy mills are a thing of the past! Bravo!

I second this. I'm planning on adopting one once we move into a house (we live in a townhouse at the moment and there is noooo room for a dog).

Jay, there is always room for a dog!  I live in a townhouse as well and our Yorkie mix is only 15 lbs and the sweetest little dog... and they adapt well to being indoors.
