ARREST Monique Michelle Matthews for selling sick puppies.

      Mike Hughes

      Norco, CA

For years Monique Michelle Matthews has been selling sick puppies to people in the Los Angeles & Riverside areas.  She proclaims these are puppies she has bred herself and goes as far to bring other dogs she says are the parents.  However, she has not bred these dogs.  They are sick dogs she gets from puppy mills and pet distributors and they get even sicker in her poor care.  She is also known to give them drugs to mask all their symptoms so they seem healthy when you first seem them.  She uses many different fake names in hopes you can not find her when your puppy gets very sick, or worse, dies.  She also provides fake health guarantees and provides questionable vet records that no one can verify.

Monique's mom is Gail Dragna who is the owner of Pet's Delight pet store in Pasadena and many beleive she is the one supplying her daughter with dogs.

NBC news did a story you can watch here:!/on-air/as-seen-on/Sick-Puppy-Complaints-Prompt-Investigation/162173255

Here is the piece CBS did on her:

Monique is currently living and operating out of the Norco area.  Although police searched her house on 7/11/12, she has yet to be arrested.   Please sign this petition in hopes that she is arrested and charges are filed.

Thank you.

      Hello everyone. This week I was contacted by two people who recently bought sick puppies from Monique. One had parvo and unfortunately died. She is doing this despite the fact that she knows the DA is currently investigating her. However, the DA's office has told me she is likely to only be charged with misdemeanors. Please pass this petition on in hopes they charge her with more. Thanks.

      This woman must be stopped.

      Making a quick buck off the lives of suffering and dying animals is absolutely unconscionable.

      Throw her in jail.

      She scammed my husband and I and our puppy was only 5 or 6 weeks when we got her; way to young to be away from the mom. She was shoving pills and vitamins down her throat and lied about her shots and birthday. She is an evil woman with no regard towards animals.
