Where do you put your money?

I am curious as to where people stand with this issue.

I got the poll in there, now, and I said I do not buy in stores that sell puppies or kittens, but I am wondering whether I should give up stores that sell other creatures. I am interested in what others think on the topic.

I ticked "I will not buy puppies or kittens at pet stores, but may buy other items or services." because I shop at Petsmart and they have cats for adoption and they have doggy adoption days. I don't know of that counts as a pet store. ???

Yeah, I occassionally do the Petsmart thing too. They also sell birds and rodents.

When I first read the title, I thought "What money?"
I do have a standing goal to be three carpayments ahead (it's happened before)...and at least two paychecks in savings but it's been a rough couple of three years.

.....I own a pet shop, and I do not sell dogs/cats. I am very interested to see what the views of this poll are. My shop sells pond supplies, koi, aquariums, and fish....are all pet stores viewed as evil in today's world?

I go to Petco and Petsmart for toys and other stuff, they sell fish, birds, ferrets, hamsters, lizards and other small animals.

I have bought geckos, hamsters and fish from pet stores before.

I do not buy from pet stores that sell puppies and kittens though.

I buy food and treats from my local feedstore and they do not sell animals there.

I think "adoption or placement" is different than "selling"....
I too will buy a product of two from Petsmart or Petco.....I don't buy food from there, because up till now...they don't carry a brand that I use.
*I do not buy from stores that actually "sell" puppies or kittens....
