Don´t Buy Puppies From Pet Shops !

Please, do not buy puppies from pet shops in Spain ! It is a simple but important request and the reasons are good:

  • The Puppies in Pet Shops are often bred in “puppy farms” under cruel circumstances
  • Hundreds of Puppies and Adult Dogs are waiting for adoption already!
  • Do not feed the puppy farming business by buying their products!


Personally, if I see a petshop selling puppies, I will go in. Look around. Wait till the shop is full of people. Then loudly say: “ I will NEVER buy anything here, they sell farmed puppies. You should all go someplace else“. Of course, this kind of activism is not for everyone, but at the very least – do NOT buy the puppies in these pet shops and if at all possible, support the pet shops that do not sell puppies for all your other pet related requirements. There are some good pet shops in Jávea that has everything your dog needs, but do not sell puppies – use those shops and boycott the others!

If you want a new companion in your life a dog is a lovely choice. You can find plenty of wonderful puppies to adopt, train and become part of your family at the APASA Dog Kennel in Javea. Their website is always updated with what puppies and adult dogs they have ready for adoption. Have a look at APASA Javea as your very first stop when you want to add a new little puppy to your family!
