Puppymills and Pet shops

I don't know if this subject has been brought up before so ...

We all understand where most of the pet shop puppies come from, pet brokers and puppy mills BUT at the same time, how can we, in good faith, walk past a shop and see an adorable fur baby and not want to rescue it? do we think we are doing a favor to the pup? i mean, what if no one bought him/her what would we be sentencing this pup too?

What really happens when NOBODY purchases these lil guys? Do they go back to the PuppyMill to breed? Or are they sent somewhere else? Isn't that sentencing it to more pain and heartache, etc.?

Pls. remember, I am new so be gentle with me

I have often wondered the exact same thing. I remember reading that some people simply don't go to pet stores that have puppies, but the puppies are still there.
I saved Frosty from a pet store, and I wouldn't change anything about her. She is my baby. I understand that there are increased chances of health problems. But do the pet store puppies deserve the life they are living.
I am definitely not trying to offend anyone, as I greatly appreciate everyone's info and value all the knowledge gained. I just have such a heavy heart thinking about all the poor furbabies wanting nothing more than a little love and kindness. What do we do???
