Selfless pet shop owner forgoes Christmas sales to help rescue pups12/26/2012
Pet lovers are showering an Aussie businesswoman with praise after she sacrificed profits for puppies. Mandy Tregeagle, who runs The Pet Spot in Adelaide, posted on Facebook that she was halting puppy sales until after Christmas to discourage impulse buying by unprepared pet owners and to encourage the adoption of rescue pups. Quickly going viral, her post has over 20,000 likes and 800 comments. Twitter user @LilRubyFox cheers, "BRAVO!" and @jravely tweets, "Good for them!" Sales figures aren’t available but we've got a hunch Christmas may be a highly lucrative season, making Tregeagle's Christmas gift to shelter pups all the more admirable. [Source]
