It's time again to find out which shop is the most compassionate of them all! Every year, Born Free USA asks members to nominate their favorite compassionate pet supply store. The contest's only criteria are that the store cannot sell live animals of any kind — that includes birds, reptiles or fish — and must be a brick-and-mortar store (not just online). Use our online form (find it here) to tell us what makes it so special.
