AAS has inspected Puppy Pals and found it clean and humane. But most, if not all, of the pups come from puppymills which are almost certainly not clean or humane and we doubt very much that Pam Grandmaison inspects every puppymill she purchases from. We have also been told several times that pups purchased from Puppy Pals went on to develop fatal diseases. Therefore we urge you not to help make Puppy Pals financially successful by purchasing a puppy from it. If you must have a puppy, then only buy direct from the breeder. Insist on being shown where the pups are kept. Inhumane breeders will bring pups into the house to show you, but will not let you see where they are all kept. Good breeders will allow you to meet the mother dog (and the male too if the breeder has both parents) so that you can see her temperament.
For the same reason, we urge you not to purchase a pup from a pet store.
But we do urge you to "Please Don't Breed or Buy While Shelter Pets Die"
