Off the Echo Park Animal Alliance news service (read: list serve): Posh Puppy in Beverly Hills has shut down. Chicken Corner clucks for joy! And chants: Rescue promotion, cruelty demotion! In January, Echo Park Animal Alliance members shuttled to the West Side to participate in a demonstration in front of the store, which naturally was associated with puppy mills -- details of those operations are hideous (think of ten-year-old dogs who have never once been outside of a cage). Demonstrations in front of Posh Puppy continued into this spring.
It was just one store among zillions, but it's a step in a good direction. For more details, click here.
