Any one cares to shout down puppy mills?

Hello everyone , i am trying to get support here. If you love dogs and cats i hope you will be interesting to help me:) Not sure if everyone knows about puppy mills, i want to give you one link which is pretty much explains how its works. You can also google the pictures for puppy mills. Please do not post any pictures in this thread as they are graphic. So my first link just pretty much educational. Puppy mills involves any kind of dogs , cats and some rodents.

Wisconsin Puppy Mill Project, Inc.: Frequently asked questions from students

More voices needed to force ''PUPS ACT'' they also call it ''PUPS BILL''This new law if passed, would put restrictions on the puppy mills that sell puppies over the internet & are not subject to any inspections/restrictions at present!!
Please help the poor suffering dogs held captive in these hell-holes.

2013-This Bill has STILL NOT been passed as of yet. Year after year... and our elected officials STILL do not think this bill is important enough to pass into law. We need more people to call and write our lawmakers to let them know that we are above abusing man's best friend and turning a blind eye when we actually know what is happening! Puppy Mills are cruel, inhumane and unacceptable.

"You may never know what results come from your action, but if you do nothing there will be no result"

Some states has more regulation than other states. For example in Wisconsin Governor Doyle signed bill (Dog breeders licensure Bill) The states with more regulations makes more difficult for puppy mills to exist , because it put more restrictions on them and more difficulties to sell those puppies over the internet that are not subject to any insections. With Dog Seller Law enforced many commercial breeders are go out of business rather than comply with inspection and licensing. Puppymillers appear to be moving their operations into unregulated states If some states have more regulations that others guess what, it means that people who cares do something about it. I want to ask you guys to help , it really doesn't take a long time at all. If you can just send an e mail to your state senator and representative , and fax to USDA which is responsible for the oversight of all puppy mills (kennels) in this country
Here is the links U.S. Senate and The United States House of Representatives · All you have to do just click on those links , put your zip code and it will lead to your state senator and representative e mail . There is even the sample of the letter to send, you can just personalize it.
I am not done my post , i am going to make another one...Just think its easier this way

puppy mills

Sample letter/e-mail to send to YOUR Senators or representatives ***

Please make it personal and add a sentence or two of your 'own'. You can copy & paste. Don't forget to SIGN.

Dear Senator,

As one of the millions of animal lovers in this country, I am deeply concerned but also outraged at the inhumane and torturous treatment of dogs in PUPPY MILLS across this nation and want this issue to be made a priority for Congress.

We want the Animal Welfare Act enforced to the fullest extent and expanded to include kennels that sell puppies directly to the public. We want the USDA held accountable for truthful and accurate inspection reports of these horrible places. The most recent published report by the Inspector General proves that the USDA has NOT been doing it's job of enforcing the AWA and has been allowing violations to continue for decades! The people are watching closely to see how our elected officials will handle this horrific problem that is truly a disgrace to our country.

Please give this matter your immediate attention.

Thank you,

I need to say more so another post is coming....

The USDA is responsible for the oversight of all puppy mills (kennels) in this country. Yet there are countless kennels (puppy mills) with numerous cited violations that still continue to operate and keep helpless dogs in squalid torturous conditions. According to published reports, the USDA actually encourages farmers to operate puppy mills to supplement their income! They feel their mission is to help the farmers, not punish them, according to Bob Baker. The USDA even recently gave a huge business loan to the largest dog broker in this country, the HUNTE Corporation.

I wrote letter

I agree completely, it is so cruel and tortuous to the poor animals. Fortunately there are no puppy mills in Australia where I live. But if I lived in America I would follow your link and write an email. cheers and good luck stopping this barbarous act of sheer cruelty, Jim

thank you

Cichlids thank you for your support i really need support on this. I really hope more people will come along. I also want to post a few petitions to sign.

Cichilds i am on FB and i am posting a lot of petitions to sign there to protect the animal world. Sometimes there are petitions for Australia. And recently it was a petition for a pup in Australia who had injury and the pet store put him in a glass box, in front of everyone, which was wrong think to do to stress little pup. I still have that petition . If you interested to see my postings just in case there is something for Australia just send me a friend request on FB. Thank you so much!

Good for you Anhel

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
