Dark & Ugly Truth Behind Cute Pet Expos #adoptdontshop

This video exposes the dark & ugly truths behind cute pet expos – truths that nobody ever wants to talk about. Hey Sightseers, pet lovers across the United States enjoy attending a variety of pet shows & expos where vendors, pet lovers, and animals such as dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, and reptiles all come together under one roof. At these shows, people can support their favorite dog / cat / small animal organizations (many of which are breed specific) by buying pet friendly gear, clothing, accessories, etc. But, as fun as it is to attend these shows, is there a darker side to them? Find out what dark and ugly truths exist behind these fun & cute pet expos.

    This video made me so sad thinking of all of the unwanted animals in this world! How can people be so cruel? I adopted my boy from the animal rescue here in my city. Thanks for sharing Sally!

    It is sad what happens to a lot of animals. We adopted a three year old cat that had been rescued from an owner that had Alzheimer’s. She ended up having a severe flea infestation that gave her skin problems. They took care of her at the animal shelter and got all the fleas and skin problems treated. We got her from Petsmart for $75. She is plump and healthy and so very happy now. She is our blessing. We love her greatly!

    I am completely against cutting tails and ears on pups and Puppy mills. I use to have a beautiful black and tan female Dobi, Cindy Lou and she had her tail and ears intact. she had 1 litter and passed away with breast cancer because of that 1 litter

  8. Joseph Junior on February 4, 2023 at 3:42 am

    :,( If i could i would save them all but I can’t and it makes me so sad

    There is a special place in hell for people who run puppy mills. Thank you for reminding people to #adoptdon’tshop. Blessings, sis!

    I am planning to adopt a puppy tomorrow, through my nearest local no-kill shelter.
    He is a maremma sheepdog and I hope he is happy in his new forever home ❤

    I’m actually more into cats (and tarantulas – I’ve owned some pretty big ones), but can see why someone would want a dog for companionship. If I ever own a dog it’d have to be a solid specimen. I’m particularly fond of boxers.

  12. Glenn Judd on February 4, 2023 at 3:56 am

    So many give you unconditional love ! So many are abused ! It’s so sad !
    My cat of 14 was rescued by me ! They give you so much joy & happiness ! Sally , you have such a good heart ! Did you get a new dog ?

    Hi Sally, It is wonderful seeing many of these animals loved and cared for. Sadly, many animals are discarded because they are too old, and not loved anymore. Many will find good homes and loving care, and others face the reality of animal cruelity. May there be stronger laws to the ones who abuse them. I was an animal person who enjoyed having them around me. I would jog with them, and they always beat me, and kept both of us fit. lol I enjoyed their companionship and indeed, it was alway unconditional love. I also had cats, and they were a joy to have around, but they sure are independent animals. lol A very good vlog Sally, and thank you for sharing. 🙂

    Touching video Sally and I hope those dogs can find forever homes someday.

    Reptile expos are okay because reptiles are never adopted

  16. John Ganshow on February 4, 2023 at 4:08 am

    I wish they made milk bones for people, a crunchy, meat flavored biscuit, healthy for people, like a guys trail snack. I would buy them for upcoming hikes, or something to snack on while watching a movie at home…

  17. GoTrails on February 4, 2023 at 4:09 am

    Nice video of the dog, thanks for sharing …

    I always had dogs. When my pup Capone passed away a stray cat saw my distress and adopted me. Now i think cats are awesome too!

    I can clearly tell it’s tail was docked.

    Our black-short hair cat recently died. She was a shelter cat that we had the pleasure of sharing our home with for 13 years. She enriched our lives immeasurably. When you adopt, it’s for better or worse. We struck gold with her. Our tabby tomcat, on the other hand is fool’s gold. We love him anyway.

    great video Sal…. it is sad that these puppy mills exist… The police busted one here in Dothan, Alabama a few years ago… This husband and wife, who owned a local nail salon, had over 200+ dogs plus parrots and exotic birds caged in their backyard and garage.. I’ll spare you what they found in the garage freezer… if it wasn’t for a neighbor who called the police with a barking dog complaint, they would still be operating… sad part about it was all they got was a fine, a suspended jail sentence plus compensation for the animal upkeep till every animal was adopted out…. Their nail salon is right next door to the Target store here in Dothan and it seems like their business is better than ever…. life’s not fair…. Hope everything is good with you and Marty and your fur babies…. maybe we’ll get a video dedicated to meeting them…. fur babies, not Marty… ok, Marty too….lol
