A group of about a dozen protesters gathered in front of a puppy shop today at 3403 N. Ashland Ave. in conjunction with Puppy Mill Awareness Day. Activists have alleged that the business is a purchases dogs from puppy mills.

“[We] have proof that they buy their puppies from Amish puppy mills in Indiana,” says protest organizer Cari Meyers from The Puppy Mill Project, which shows USDA shipping records from supplying breeders.

The business, Puppies R Us, claims to have, “over 20 years of experience in breeding,” on its website.

When contacted by Roscoe View Journal this afternoon, a woman answering the phone said the store had no comment.

Malgorzata Urszula Papciak is listed as the business owner by the city.

The location was previous owned and managed as “Let’s Pet”, which moved to a new location last Spring. When contacted by Roscoe View Journal today, the owner of Let’s Pet, Susan Nawrocki, said, ”Those are two kids that took over. They said they have 20 years experience, but I’m not sure how that could be since the owner is 21 years old.
