We have a rare opportunity right now to improve the lives of thousands of dogs! The U.S. Department of Agriculture wants to hear your opinion about a proposal to crack down on puppy mills like the ones included in our Horrible Hundred report. We have only a few more hours for you to take action before the comment period closes.
This proposal could make a huge difference across the country by addressing major problems we find at puppy mills:
- Requiring that breeders provide one of life’s most basic necessities clean water to puppy mill dogs.
- Stopping breeders who are shut down from reopening under a new name. Currently, they get away with multiple violations without ever facing the consequences.
- Banning criminals recently convicted of animal cruelty from getting a federal license to breed and sell dogs to unsuspecting consumers.
Please help today, by telling the USDA that you support their proposal!
This rule has the potential to improve the lives of tens of thousands of animals now languishing in the squalor of puppy mills and we need to let the USDA know we need them to take action to help these animals.
The public has an opportunity to voice our support for this proposal. Please use the form below to submit a comment to the USDA expressing your support for this proposed rule.
