Pop punk Pink is urging her fans to boycott pet stores because she would rather they adopt abandoned dogs than buy them from unscrupulous breeders.
The So What! hitmaker joined the Puppy Mill Awareness Day event on Saturday at La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles to promote the Adopt, Don’t Shop initiative.

And after attending the awareness project, she took to her Twitter.com page to tell her followers to avoid pet shops when looking to take in a new family animal.

In a series of posts, she writes, “It’s puppy mill awareness day and I just got back from the incredible event at La Brea Tar Pits. No more puppy mills!!

“Puppy mills are awful, filthy, cruel places where dogs never see daylight, sleep in their own feces, and r (are) bred over n (and) over for pet stores. Boycott pet stores people!!!!”
