SUMMERVILLE, SC (WTAT-TV) — A press conference has been planned outside a Dorchester County animal shelter.

Animal advocates are speaking out about Petland in Summerville.

Organizers say that store will be selling puppies purchased from large-scale commercial breeding facilities.

They claim those animals will not be spayed or neutered.

Petland posted to their Facebook page Wednesday saying their goal is to ensure pets placed in homes never burden local animal shelters.

They also said not all of their animals come from one place.

We will have a crew at that press conference which is set to begin at 10:30 Thursday morning. We will give an update on FOX 24 News at 6:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.
