Join the HSUS to help put a stop to Petland's lies!

The Humane Society of the United States' new undercover investigation of a Petland store in Florence, KY found puppies with parasites and bacterial infections such as campylobacter — which can spread to humans.

In 2019 alone, at least six human cases of campylobacter have been directly tied to the Florence store. In recent years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has linked more than 118 cases of human campylobacter bacterial infections to contact with Petland puppies.

Yet Petland was downplaying risks and sometimes failing to have sick puppies tested for the disease. A manager specifically told our undercover buyer when she purchased a puppy, "it's not campylobacter," when the puppy did, in fact, test positive for campylobacter and also giardia that same day. The manager also claimed that the puppy had been given a stool test, but provided no record of such a test.

Our investigation found Petland was covering up disease outbreaks, including distemper and parvovirus, and hiding them from the public.

Subject: Tell Petland to stop selling sick puppies!

Dear State Official,

The Humane Society of the United States' new undercover investigation of a Petland corporate store in Florence, KY found puppies with parasites and bacterial infections such as campylobacter, which can spread to humans.

In recent years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has linked more than 118 cases of human campylobacter bacterial infections to contact with Petland puppies, which resulted in a number of people being hospitalized. There have been countless incidents all over the country that can be linked to Petland and it seems that they aren't taking all necessary steps to ensure the animals' welfare or public safety.

The investigation found Petland was covering up disease outbreaks and hiding them from the public. Petland has been misleading customers and selling sick puppies in order to make a profit. Petland continues to ignore animal welfare and public safety issues for the sake of making sales.

Thank you,
