MONTREAL - Canada's largest classified website is under pressure to ban the sale of household pets as part of a Montreal woman's quest to put an end to puppy mills.
Barbara Lapointe, a mother of two who operates a dog walking business, wants Kijiji to instead promote adoption from registered animal rescue groups and individual families.
Lapointe's online petition, posted on the website Change.org, had collected nearly 48,000 signatures by midday Sunday.
"We want them to set the example and be the ethical leader on this," Lapointe said in an interview.
