Stop Puppy Mills

PETITION: To amend the Animal Welfare Act to claim that all dogs must be given 20 ft. of space above and below their dimensions, measured from the tip of their nose to the base of their tail, that is not obstructed

TARGET: US Congress

The Humane Society of the United States has found that a puppy mill contains rooms stuffed with stacks of dog cages. They are overpopulated with too many dogs to fit comfortably in each cage. The floors of the cages have wire floors that damage the dog's paws and allow urine and feces to rain down from one cage onto the heads of the dogs in the cages below. Many dogs suffer from diseases, injuries, and insect infestations that are never properly treated. The female dogs are bred every time they are in heat, until they can no longer produce puppies and are then killed.

Meanwhile, shelters are forced to euthanize 3 million puppies each year because there is an overpopulation. We can no longer accept this animal cruelty that is being excused so that puppy mill owners can reap high profits. Please sign and share this petition to stop the cruelty of puppy mills by forcing dog owners to give each dog at least 20 feet of space beyond their width and length.

We the undersigned are writing to ask you to amend pg. 65, Section 3.6, C, 1, i & iii of the Animal Welfare Act to state that dogs must be given 20 feet of space beyond their height and length. Enclosing dogs in small spaces leads to socialization problems with other dogs and humans, the spreading of illness and disease, a lack of healthy exercise, and often death. We believe that an adequate amount of space is necessary for the appropriate and healthy care of a dog. We would like to see this requirement changed and enforced.

My rescue dog was a Puppy Mill rescue. Poor thing was pregnant too soon in life which stunted her growth. Being in the Puppy Mill also caused her to have a bad hip. She can't run or jump like a normal dog and she is only 3 years old. Cruelty towards animals is wrong and Puppy Mills are cruel! Animals feel and love and live, just like people!

I care dearly for most breeds of dogs and after having rescued a dozen Siberian Huskies because their owners were not willing to provide adequate care I feel this practice should be stoped.

Animals should NEVER be mistreated. People who mistreat animals should be held accountable. Animals are innocent and cannot speak for themselves. How would these people like to be treated in such inhumane ways. They need to be stopped!
