~~~~~~~~~CALL TO ACTION~~~~~~~~~
“I got a puppy 3 days ago. She was vomiting, lethargic and couldn't hold her head up. Eventually her little body couldn't take anymore. She died" (further information below)
Perfect Puppy imports sick pups from puppy mills and re-sells them to innocent families. Puppies have died from diseases such as parvo, infectious pneumonia and kennel cough. When people spoke out, Perfect Puppy threatened, intimidated and harassed them.
It began with emails & comments, escalating to visits at work & legal action. Customers were fearful of retaliation, so I shared their experiences on Boycott Perfect Puppy's FB page & Petition. Perfect Puppy demanded I remove everything, stop raising awareness and publicly apologize. I refused and they sued me.
Why This is So Important:
Customer complaints show a pattern of neglect, sickness, pain, suffering and unethical business practices. The factual evidence, along with witness testimony, will hold Perfect Puppy accountable for their actions. It will also hold State officials accountable for their lack of action!
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has”
Why Should I Join You?:
- This is an opportunity for our community to prove the truth in a court of law and hold this pet store accountable for their actions.
- There were people before me, who were threatened for speaking out...and they stopped.
- I believe Perfect Puppy plans to set an example..."If you speak out against us, this is what will happen to you". Unacceptable.
- This is not personal for me; I never purchased a puppy from this store.
- Animals and people deserve a voice... and both remain fearful of Perfect Puppy.
- I am telling the truth. I did not lie and Perfect Puppy knows that.
- State officials have taken no action, despite mounting evidence & formal complaints.
- “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor” - Desmond Tutu
- “My sister bought a dog there that did not even last 24 hours”
- “A friend bought 2 puppies and they both died within 2 weeks”
- “My friend purchased 3 German Shepherds. All had parvo, died within a week”
- "We bought our dog from Perfect Puppy. She had multiple skin infections."
- “We got sold a very sick puppy! Severe pneumonia, she is not getting better!”
- "Our puppy was very sick- blind, pnumonia, multiple digestive infections.”
- "I got a puppy from Perfect Puppy. In the ICU for a week, costing at least $3-4K."
- "The vet said her face was literally rotting off."
- “I purchased a VERY sick puppy with the deadly Parvovirus!! Our vet bills cost thousands. My puppy was hospitalized for a week and Perfect Puppy did NOTHING to help!!!”
- "My dog was extremely ill. Pneumonia, giardia, worms, EVERYTHING wrong! We were at the vet 2x a week for months! He might not have made it!”
Perfect Puppy's Threats, Intimidation, Harassment:
- Threats to enter my workplace
- Threats to speak with my supervisors, in an attempt to have me fired
- Physically going inside my spouse’s workplace, showing their picture and threatening staff
- Repeated threatening comments on the Boycott Facebook page.
- Comments on my business page
- Threats to have me investigated and/or arrested by the AG, DEM & State Vet... "Let’s see who’s getting investigated now”
- Threatening emails
- Publicly and repeatedly calling me a “lezbo”.
- Screaming at me: "Maybe you need a c**k, you f****** lesbian"
- Perhaps, most threatening, he made sure I was aware that he knew exactly where I live and exactly where I work.
