A large chain called 動物王國 (Kingdom of Animals) is opening branches all over Taipei. A new one opened near where I live and I went to check it out. It’s huge, with lots of brands and great prices. However, I immediately walked out when went to the back and saw that they are selling all the “hot” breeds of dogs. tons of puppies stuffed in cages. If you know anything about the lack of regulation of breeders here, you will know why this is troublesome.
Please do not support a place like this in any way. When I see a store that is selling dogs, I won’t even buy a rubber ball there. There are other pet stores all over Taipei that sell food and toys and instead of selling dogs, have posters in their windows of dogs that need adopted and some even do events to help the rescue associations. I just adopted a daschund abandoned by a breeder after it could no longer have puppies. The people profiting from these stores are sick in the f***ing head, so please, if you see a pet store selling dogs and cats, buy nothing from them.
