Stop All Pets Club from selling puppy mill dogs.

All Pets Club of Connecticut knowingly sells dogs that come from puppy mills- large commercial breeding facilities, the equivalent of factory farms for dogs, that are notorious for the cruel and inhumane treatment of both the puppies and the breeder dogs.

It's all about making as much profit as possible. The puppies sold at APC are given little to no vetting before being shipped, are taken from their mothers as early as 8 weeks of age, and are commonly found to have major life-threatening illnesses due to the overbreeeding and lack of care.

The breeder dogs- the parents- are kept in cruel conditions as well. Because it's all about keeping overhead at its lowest, breeder dogs spend their entire lives in filthy crates only 6 inches bigger than the dogs themselves; they are not walked or played with; the females are bred each time they go into heat, over and over again until they cannot breed anymore. At this point these dogs are often euthanized or given up at auction for animal testing purposes.

All Pets Club is legally required to name the breeders where their puppies have come from. They mislead the public by saying the dogs come from small breeders who care about the dogs they sell. They use names like Dot's Little Doggies to give it a homespun feel when in fact, Dot's Little Doggies is a commercial breeding facility in Kansas that is a typical puppy mill. At the last USDA inspection, Dot's was housing over 500 adult dogs and more than 350 puppies.  Small time breeder?  We think not!  Another mill that All Pets Club buys from is Puppies Extraordinaire.  Just last year they had 681 adult dogs on site and 322 puppies.  Extraordinarily horrific!

Some facts to consider:
4-5 million animals die in shelters every year (roughly 11,000 every day.)
It’s estimated that 4 million dogs are bred in puppy mills every year.
There are nearly 6,000 USDA-licensed commercial kennels in the U.S. (and untold numbers of unlicensed.)
All Pets Club buys from these USDA- licensed mills and misleads the public.

Our goal is to educate the public about where All Pets Club's puppies come from so that people will choose not to shop there until APC changes their ways. 

Thank you for your interest!
