Society For Better Pet Shops

Aims and Objectives

Our aims and objectives are:

  • To create awareness of the society across the country
  • To improve the living conditions of animals kept in pet shops
  • To see that pet shop staff are more educated in the care of the animals they sell
  • To make sure that potential buyers are made aware of all the responsibility that comes with pet ownership
  • To stop impulse buying of pets
  • To educate children about the needs of animals to prepare them for when they are old enough to buy pets themselves.

How We Will Achieve These Things

We will achieve our aims and objectives in the following ways:

  • Creating publicity aides to spread awareness, flyers, leaflets and car stickers etc.
  • Contacting pet shops that we believe need to improve the standards in which they keep their animals.
  • Recommending "good" pet shops on our site so that people know where to shop.
  • Doing talks in schools etc to teach the children the basics of animal ownership.
  • Working with pet shops to improve their quality of care and staff education.

we will add to this list as we find more ways of achieving our aims.
