Harvestview Puppies

We are a family run business. Since 1999 we have been breeding our puppies. The buildings our dogs are housed in comply with the Pennsylvania State requirements. When state regulations change, we make sure we stay in compliance by changing our operations. We have many years of inspections with no violations.

How can you help?

Call Little Wonders Puppy Emporium.

If you are brave enough, contact the owner. Ask him about the welfare of the puppies. We don’t want to see a local business close down, instead we want the owner to choose a more humane business model by either not selling puppies at all, or helping shelter dogs instead!

Little Wonders can be reached on Facebook.

Share this article on their wall and tag their store to raise awareness about their connection to puppy mills. Their page is here.

Whether you join them and hold a sign, or just drive by, your support means the world to the girls who are giving their voices to the dogs that have none.

Every city, every state, this part goes for everyone.

Pet stores that sell puppies and cats should not get your business. Consumers can change the problem of pet overpopulation in our country. You should visit your local shelter if you are looking for a new pet. Some dogs in shelters are overlooked. If you can’t find what you’re looking for at your local shelter, try Petfinder. You can search for any breed. If you want to buy a puppy, always demand to #ShowMeTheMommy.

Little Wonders Puppy Emporium is nothing special. Pet stores across the country are buying puppies from out of state mills and passing them off as local, respectable breeders. Iowa exports over 100,000 puppies to pet stores each year. This is an inhumane business model that pet stores have adopted to make a quick buck. We need your help to end this industry. Walk out the door if you see puppies. Shop at humane pet stores that don’t sell animals. We will end this industry together.
