Never buy an animal from a pet store

Cat at shelterEven small animals like hamsters, rats and gerbils can be found in shelters and rescues. 

Do not shop at stores that sell animals

Even if just purchasing supplies, any money spent in a store that sells animals supports animal abuse and neglect, reinforcing that their business model is appropriate and profitable.

Report abuse

If you see abuse or neglect happening in a pet store or if you know of an animal mill or backyard breeder operation, report it to a cruelty investigator.

Call our local OSPCA Inspector at (613) 546-1291.
