WHAT:​ Due to the annual Valentine’s day surge in animal sales, we’re conducting a pro-adoption/anti puppy mill awareness protest at Animal Kingdom in Santa Maria. Animal Kingdom – a pet shop chain with locations in Santa Maria, Grover Beach, and Pismo Beach – sells puppies, kittens, and small animals.
Among the most popular places in the Santa Maria Town Center mall is the Animal Kingdom Pet Shop.

Protests at the Animal Kingdom pet shop in Santa Maria continued on Feb. 11, even after the City Council decided at its Feb. 7 meeting not to agendize an ordinance banning retail pet sales in the city. The Santa Maria City Council decided to take up the issue of a proposed local pet shop ordinance sometime next year.

No More Pet Store Puppies 805 has partnered with the Companion Animal Protection Society (CAPS), a nonprofit investigative organization that aims to protect companion animals from cruelty in puppy and kitten mills, to fight pet stores on the Central Coast. Most of those shops are Animal Kingdom franchises, and CAPS investigated the chain’s Santa Maria location in 2015.In November, several animal advocates lobbied the City Council to adopt a ban on pet stores — primarily Animal Kingdom in the Santa Maria Town Center mall — from selling puppies, kittens and bunnies. Instead, they want those shops to offer animals from rescue groups.
