Pennsylvania Dog Law Enforcement Office has failed to enforce regulations meant to eliminate the substandard commercial kennels known as puppy mills, a state advisory board reported on 09/27/2012. These were hard fought for regulations meant to protect the animals mass produced in inhumane conditions through out Pennsylvania.

During that meeting state officials admitted that only a fraction of commercial kennels were complying with canine health regulations that were to go into effect in July 2011 establishing standards for humidity, ventilation, lighting and ammonia levels in large operations.

The report makes a series of recommendations. Chief among them, Hickey said, is to immediately inspect the 184 commercial kennels that said they had closed and to inspect the additional 69 kennels that said they no longer sell enough dogs to qualify as commercial kennels to ensure they are operating legally.

They won't enforce the laws unless we make them!  We must force officials to do their jobs and protect the animals.

      Ban puppy mills and prosecute the owners for animal cruelty! Then they will have to face God's justice and burn in Hell for all eternity!!!

      I adopted a 7 year old Boxer named Ruby who was rescued from an Amish Puppy Mill in Pa and if we didn't take her who would have ? All she was used for was breeding more boxers to be sold for profit and when they didn't need her any longer, well Thank God we ended up with her. She is amazing and full of love and we could not imagine our lives without her. I support this bill for the unlucky dogs who don't end up like our Ruby. Thank-you

      No animal should suffer for the profit of greed. People also end up adopting sick puppies with genetic disorders.

      I adopted a puppy mill dog from AABR on 5/4/11. My boxer Jenny (aka Blaze) will never be a "normal" dog and will carry the scars of her days as a mill dog forever. When I first got her she was nothing more then a stuff animal with a heartbeat. There was nothing there just a body no boxer soul. I remember crying when she wagged her tail at me for the first time. It breaks my heart to think of the life she lived before coming to me. If the laws cannot be enforced then shut them all down!
