    Default Honest Kitchen recognized for puppy mill stance

    Since I'm a customer, I get emails from Honest Kitchen (a PugVillage supporting/sponsor member) and I was so impressed by this article today in their email:

    We were incredibly honored and very humbled this week, to receive a plaque from the Humane Society of the United States, in recognition of our policy of never allowing our products to be sold in stores that sell puppies, and for being a part of the ‘humane economy’.

    As you may know, we’ve refused to allow ‘puppy mill’ stores to carry our line since we first began, many moons ago, in 2002. Instead, we support pet supply retailers who host pet adoptions in their stores or work with local rescue groups. We also help educate people on how to find a responsible breeder (there’s a whole chapter devoted to ‘responsibly sourcing’ your new pup or older dog, in my new book Dog Obsessed, out October 10th).

    The true cost of buying a puppy from a store—in terms of animal welfare, health concerns, and other problems—is unbelievable. Some people find it next-to-impossible to resist picking up that adorable puppy who’s rolling around in shredded newspaper behind a wall of glass. But if you buy one of these dogs, you’re doing more harm than good on many different levels.

    Way to go, HK!! I wish all pet food companies took this stance!

    Plus, as a bonus, the article has a photo of the company founder's black pug, Johnson. He's a blind, senior pug and just so cute!

    Edited: I just realized, that can't be Johnson in the picture because the founder's pug on the boxes is fawn, not black. So I'm not sure who the cutie is in the photo!

    Thanks so much for the support! The cute pug in the picture is Felix. He's on our customer service team and was rescued from a puppy mill!
