The family-owned neighborhood pet shop of the past is non-existent today.
Nowadays many corporations call themselves “family businesses,” but they are really agressively manufacturing and retailing an endless flow of commercial puppies. It's a fact that 99 percent of pet store puppies come from inhumane USDA commercial breeding puppy mills.
Legal evidence does not lie. The photos attached to this article show irrefutable legal government documents which prove Russo’s in Newport Beach is trucking in Midwest substandard commercial puppy mill puppies to be sold as “Champion” pets at Fashion Island.
The USDA is the sole regulator of federal law requiring humane treatment of our companions under USDA's Factory Farming Practices. The very same breeders they are paid to promote. Wolves in charge of the hen house has proven their complete inability to regulate the industry, documented by the U.S. Inspector General, Federal Court of Law, Senate and Congress. USDA protocols are flawed and non-existent, ending in the entire industry's violation of federal law, governing the very sparse and required treatment of companion animals under “The Animal Welfare Act.”
The lifetime horror lived by 1.5 million canine companions in commercial breeding puppy mills would shock your mind. Many of these poor animals are sold straight out of Russo’s Pet’s in Newport Beach's Fashion Island. While the store guarantees the sale of “high quality” and “champion pets," as is typical of his commercial breeding industry to utilize titles of intentional deceit. Incorporating terms such as “family” and “kennel,” unwitting consumers place values of “family” trust and believe their puppy was bred in a reputable breeding program at a “Kennel.”
The puppy mill industry is not limited to the actual mills as it includes retail outlets. This is the connection of Midwest puppy mill and Russo's Pets: Russo's puppies come from Substandard Puppy Mills and a Canine Carving Science Researcher with 630 dogs.
Are All Russo’s Breeders Inhumane? Here are some of the red flags:
- In an unprecedented move, the Irvine Company banned Russo's industry sales from all Irvine Company retail properties.
- The owner of Russo's is a convicted criminal of animal cruelty.
- Pet stores like are banned in every surrounding city of Newport Beach by the majority vote of ethical municipal government officials and are deemed unlawful industry sales.
