Through Best Friends' puppy mill initiatives, we are working to convince pet stores to offer pets for adoption instead of selling mill-bred pets, educate consumers about puppy mills, and create and lobby for humane legislation. Together, we're making an impact and saving lives. Join us and help bring about a time when every dog can feel safe, happy and loved.
It may seem like an easy and practical way to buy a dog: You visit a pet store or website, find the perfect puppy, and within minutes you’ve got your new best friend. But just because it’s easy doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. That’s because most puppies for sale in pet stores and online are born and raised in factory-like, inhumane settings called puppy mills, where people see animals as a cash commodity rather than the way you do — as a valued animal deserving of a home that fosters health and well-being.

Welcome to Your Best Friend Pet Supply where your best friend is our best friend. We opened our cat and dog friendly store in December, 2009. Our mission is to meet your best friend’s needs with friendly help and reasonable prices.Puppy mills turn back the clock on , as well as the work Best Friends and our partner organizations are doing to ensure that all homeless pets find a forever home. It is estimated that there are about 10,000 puppy mills in operation in the U.S. today, and the more dogs bought from pet stores with puppies, the less homes there are to adopt from shelters.At Your Best Friend Pet Supply, your best friend is always welcome. We want your best friend to come into our store, run the aisles, sample the smells, and enjoy a treat. Your best friend is treated with love and respect, and is never considered a shoplifter.A common misperception is that the only way to welcome a purebred puppy into your home is by purchasing from a dog breeder or pet store. Best Friends urges people looking for a particular breed to adopt from an organization that rescues and finds homes for specific purebreds.Best Friends understands and recognizes that there are responsible puppy breeders who adhere to high standards of care for their animals. However, many commercial dog breeders who are breeding dogs to sell wholesale to pet stores and distributors follow only the minimum required USDA standards of care, which do nothing to protect dogs and to promote responsible, quality breeding.Best Friends members Alan Braslow and his wife Elaine have been deeply involved in animal rescue activities in New Jersey for years. And because they’re so familiar with Best Friends’ work, when a new pet store opened in his hometown, Alan had a hunch where those puppies came from — puppy mills.
