Shut Down DELILAH KNEPP'S Puppy Mill in Indiana

    1. Petition by

      Erica Peters

      Colts Neck

Puppy mills not only reduce the amount of animals that are adopted from shelters, but promotes euthanasia of innocent animals because people turn to pet stores rather than shelters. The best way to describe a puppy mill is walls and walls of cramped wire cages filled with hundreds of dogs. Delilah Jean Knepp is a dog breeder in Indiana and both her and her husband Abner breed tons of dogs and sell them to pet shops all around the world. Sometimes her dogs are bred and are healthy, but a lot of the time her dogs are sick or anxious. The website, www.petshoppuppies.com, details a few registered dogs bought through pet stores that were supplied by the Knepps. We need to stop puppy mills and promote the ADOPTION of shelter dogs.

      Shut all puppy, kitten, and other animal mills down. The pet trade is a disgusting monstrous industry where the animal is nothing more than a commodity that everyone profits from. People should be required to have a licence to buy a companion animal and that licence should be not only difficult to acquire but should need to be renewed every year on inspection of said animal.

      Whilst healthy animals are being put down in shelters, there is no place or need for puppy mills & we need to shut them down for good.

      Puppy mills may be more acceptable by society if the animals were well taken care of. But because our state laws don't look out for the well being of the animals they should be shut down. They are people too and why even have animal cruelty laws if you don't stand behind them???!!!!! it outrages me...I just rescued a Pom from a puppy mill. She is around 4 but has the mind of a puppy. She doesn't know how to jump, shes very skittish, and you can tell she has not socialized her whole life. Stop puppy mills and start regulating the laws people!!!!
