Local pet store draws protest

About 70 people held homemade signs outside of Westfield Franklin Park Saturday afternoon and chanted, “Don’t shop, adopt,” and “Boycott the Family Puppy.”

One of the signs encouraged passers-by to “Google Amish Puppy Mills.”

Jean Keating, co-founder of the Ohio Coalition of Dog Advocates that helped to organize the event, said the goal was to educate Toledo residents about why they should not buy a puppy from the Family Puppy, a Michigan-based store that is opening a location at the mall in mid-October. The store will be located near BD’s Mongolian Grill, next to California Nails and across from Relax Magic.  More
