Protect dogs from cruel puppy mills!

Puppy mills are horrific commercial breeding facilities where puppies are ‘mass-produced’ for sale through pet stores, the internet or directly to the public. These poor animals are forced to live in squalid conditions with little to no veterinary care or human interaction. As a result, many of the puppies who are sold to the public are sick, while the adult animals forced to continue breeding suffer from severe physical and emotional problems.

The federal government has fallen down on the job when it comes to regulating these facilities, and something needs to be done. The Welfare of Our Friends (WOOF) Act, H.R. 1002, will take necessary steps to crack down on puppy mills by preventing USDA-licensed facilities from cheating the license renewal process and continuing to operate even if they have violated the Animal Welfare Act.

Let Congress know that the public will no longer tolerate puppy mills that are allowed to continue to operate despite documented mistreatment of animals -- please speak up today in support of the WOOF Act. Thank you!

Please take a moment to call your U.S. Representative; you can look up your legislator's phone number here. You can say, "As your constituent, I urge you to cosponsor the Welfare of Our Friends (WOOF) Act,H.R. 1002, which will crack down on cruel puppy mills. Pets are like family members and should be treated as such. Breeders who violate the law shouldn’t be allowed to renew their licenses.
