Activists from Best Friends, Orange County People for Animals and Last Chance for Animals have stood outside pet stores in Los Angeles, Thousands Oaks and Mission Viejo "educating: shoppers and convincing them to adopt and not buy puppies. Now, the so-called "Puppy Store-Free Orange County" campaign is moving into Brea as well.

An OCPA email blast says the Barkworks store in Brea Mall can now expect activists outside.
Best Friends already has a regular presence at the Barkworks at the Westside Pavilion in LA and at The Shops of Mission Viejo, while Last Chance for Animals holds demonstrations at the Thousand Oaks Barkworks.

"
Best Friends, OCPA and others have been holding educational demonstrations at the Barkworks Store at The Shops of Mission Viejo Mall for only six weeks and have already had a significant impact!" states the email. "This means that we are educating the public and they are choosing not to shop, but to adopt."

OCPA also makes a pitch for volunteers to help in the Brea effort, which is broken up into different Saturday shifts sometime between noon and 5 p.m. Email
