I hope the city of Newport Beach/Corona Del Mar consider this ban. It's a win win, helping the O.C. shelter with so many wonderful adoptable dogs & cats and making a dent in the cruel puppy mill business.

If the 'pet buying' public knew the ugly truth behind where these puppies came from I'm willing to bet that even the hardest of hearts would not ever consider buying a puppy from a pet store. The 'buying public' that does purchase a puppy, well they just don't know about the physical suffering that the mothers dogs and their pups endure but also they themselves will suffer much heartache when they realize that their sweet little puppy will not ever experience optimal good health despite the best efforts of their pet-parents and vets.

Out of curiosity, who would take the time to vote, "I have no opinion'?

Let's see who takes time to vote ? People who care about things , people , animals. just takes a second and why not make a difference ?

I read in this paper a few weeks ago that a new puppy store opened in CdM. The 3 partners stated that their dogs only come from USDA approved breeders and that their puppies (selling for $1500 or so) are not from puppy mills. What a joke. Most puppy mill breeders ARE approved by the USDA, even the worst. We don't need to supply Orange County with more puppies when the demand is so low that OCAS is killing perfectly adoptable dogs every day. Why is the county allowing this? It's not logical and a waste of our taxes. We pay to house thousands of animals every month, provide them expensive veterinary care, and then kill most of them while 3 women try to sell $1500 puppies? This is insane.

What really gets me is that they said in the initial release about their store that they sell alot of "hybrid" dogs! Basic mutts!! so not only are they supporting puppy mills, but non standard "designer" dogs that just cause people to want to try to breed their own mixes... The sadder part???? there are people willing to spend $1,200 on a mutt!!!!

The true story of the breeding facilities where these puppies are born has been uncovered. The public will no longer tolerate animal abuse at any level. When puppy mills (aka USDA licensed breeders) keep dumping and killing spent dogs, while so many dogs/cats are killed at the shelter, it's time to do something. In this case, these women know full well what they are doing. They are in it for the money. If they loved animals, they would not be in the business of selling them. No responsible breeder would ever ship their dog hundreds, even thousands of miles away to a facility to buyers who they have never met.

I voted 26 times " i do not have an opinion" to make the point this survey is unreliable.

Just cause you can do something, Dan, doesn't mean you should do it.

This is ridiculous. With the amount of dogs that are killed in shelters each day in California.. Stores that sell puppies should be stopped.. Especially when they are selling puppies that come from puppy mills..

Well Dan your parents must be so proud. It's just like locks, any thief can break them, they only keep honest people honest.

Robincdm and Amy (Staff), people in town have routinely cited results of surveys on this site as justification for one action or another. My point is that these surveys are subject to misinterpretation, misuse and abuse and maybe Amy should include a brief note about the validity of her online surveys. This has nothing to do with the puppy shop issue or locks on your doors. One only needs to delete their cookies to revote. I raised similar concerns about a Corona del Mar Residents Association survey. There are forensic tools that can be used to verify the validity of each vote, but I haven’t heard that Amy or the CdMRA use them. I was the first person to complain about the puppy shop over code issues, so please do not drag me into this animal welfare debate!! I chose this survey because the respondent total is the highest I have seen to-date. Shame on you Robin for criticizing my parental upbringing and on Amy for not properly addressing my concern and posting a character questioning quip while on the road back from Vegas!!

With the thousands of animals being killed daily just because they were not wanted, why is breeding necessary? We have too many beautiful, loving animals in our shelters and rescue groups that can be adopted through pet stores - should not be killed.
