There are those who don’t think you know which animals belong with your family. Who think they should get to decide.
For many months these protestors have picketed our store. That’s their right. Our customers support us. Our community knows we care for our animals. Our Village knows that we abide by the rules.
But the Village is being inundated by these noisy outsiders who monopolize public meetings and waste the time and energy of our officials. They show up to every Village meeting trying to shut down our store. They want to control who can own pets, which pets you can bring into your home, and where you can obtain them. These are the only voices Village officials are hearing.
We thought the issue was resolved, but they just won’t stop.
Most people in the community are unaware of the agenda of this vocal minority. The Village has been very supportive, but they need to hear from you.
