Puppy Mills Must Be Shut Down – It will Take All Of Us
Everyone Knows how I feel about Puppy Mills. My Abigail came from a puppy mill and worse yet, we didn’t even find that out for weeks after we purchased her. It was one of those situations where she was sold by a puppy mill to a dog broker who supposedly is reputable, then he sells to individuals and to pet stores. Well no matter how you white wash it, it is despicable, and needs to be stopped.
A friend of mine over at Associated Content for Yahoo, Michele Starkey, has written an article that really needs your attention. Here is an excerpt. Please got to the article because at the end is a link to a form you can fill out to speak to your legislature no matter where you live, to help put a stop to this nightmare.
I’m counting on you, the puppies need us. Puppy Mills will never be shut down as long as we ignore the problem. Not taking a stand will only prolong the agony of these tortured mother dogs, these neglected puppies with very little hope and we devoted dog lovers. Puppy Mills and their disgusting breeders. Please read the article and take action.
According to the ASPCA and several members of the U.S. House of Representatives, there is a giant-sized loophole in U.S. law concerning puppy mills. Breeders who sell to puppy brokers and pet stores have to be USDA licensed but those who sell directly to the public are NOT monitored by the USDA.The Puppy Uniform Protection and Safety (PUPS) Act has appeared in past Congressional sessions, but has always timed out. Why has the Congress let this Act time out? Inquiring minds want to know.
