Paris Hilton, Britney Spears

Paris Hilton is somehow still allowed to take home any member of the canine kingdom she craves, God help all those innocent li'l things. But Par's Beverly Hills puppy hang's been shut down for good. Guess some miracles do happen!

Pets of Bel-Air, which boasts A-list clientele such as Hilton, Demi Moore, Britney Spears and Denise Richards, has been shut down and accused of selling sick dogs from puppy mills to overeager customers more than willing to shell out big bucks for a cute pup.

All this right around the corner from us, we could choke with disgust. According to NBC News, the lawsuit "alleged the store sold puppies that later became sick or died because they were bred in so-called puppy mills…all the while claiming the animals were from private breeders."

Puppy mills are just absolute no good, people, ya hear?

These canine factories unnecessarily create unhealthy pooches that are not only sold for way too much moolah, but, their very existence causes perfectly healthy dogs without a home—and who desperately need adopting—to get killed as a result. We know there are some decent, reputable breeders out there, and though we encourage everyone to pick up a shelter pooch instead, not every breeder is a baddy. If you're an animal lover like all of us at the AT, focus your anger on shutting down puppy mills or avoiding pet stores that get their dogs from one.

That, or try buying Paris a friggin' parakeet as a pet instead of a pup, cause at least that animal can talk back when its being mistreated.
