Businesses can be successful without selling dogs, cats and rabbits.


The Concerned Animal Advocates of Branford (CAAB) supports local businesses. Therefore, we have developed a pledge of patronage. We promise to support and promote any local business that incorporates a humane business model.

Sign and support these businesses with your patronage.

It works.

Did you know that PetSmarts’ revenue has grown every single quarter during these tough economic times? Both PetSmart and Petco, the nation’s largest retail pet supply stores, both follow a humane business model and are proof that it works. In Connecticut, 45 petstores have taken the “puppy-friendly pledge,” which means that they refuse to sell puppies in their stores.
