Make Puppy Mills illegal

    1. Jenna Hodge
    2. Petition by

      Jenna Hodge

      Cape Coral, FL

Reasons Puppy Mills need to be banned from the US:

1. terrible feeding/boarding conditions : they are literally piled on top of each other
2. diseases, illnesses, and depression
3. no human companionship, toys or comfort, and little hope of ever becoming part of a family
4. dogs that aren't adopted/rescued are euthanized
5. after their fertility wanes, breeding animals are often killed, abandoned or sold cheaply to another mill to try and get "one more litter" out of the dog

...result of all this breeding is millions of puppies, many with behavior and/or health problems.

    1. LETS MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!

      Jenna Hodge
      Petition Organizer

      Everyday THOUSANDS of animals are abandoned, starved, abused, and left for dead. I feel it in my heart to help make a difference for them. I've partnered with Ken Mar Rescue who has saved hundreds of dogs from euthanization as well as found new homes for the majority of them. The animals have been provided with food, shelter, medicine, surgeries, and the essentials that they need to survive. I've been trying for a little over a month and a half to raise money for Ken Mar Rescue to help with the cost of food/supplies/and surgeries. I've hit a rocky start but I know that by reaching out to my amazing facebook friends, family, and boutique customers we can do it. All I'm asking is that you skip coffee for 1 day and donate that $1-$5 to my cause. I know that the economy is terrible and that not everyone can afford it, but if you possible could spare a dollar or two, even that helps greatly!

      We cannot keep letting things like this happen. Yes, Puppy mills are illegal in some states. But its in the states where they arent illegal, the numbers of puppy mills continue to rise. We need to STOP this and make them illegal to all US states.

      I looked after a rescued puppy from a puppy mill. He attacked and bit everyone, but me. I was too young to handle this responsibility and I let him go. I found out he was later put down. I am older now and I want to help stop this from happening again.

      My rescued Pit Bull, Roshi was the most loving dog I'd ever had. He'd lay on my stomach every time I laid down. He was stolen from my yard by a homeless couple tried to use him to solicit money. They had a scarf around his neck as a leash, when he attempted to escape he got out of it and ran into traffic and was struck by a car. The car ran over his back legs and he was paralyzed. The homeless couple put the scarf back around his neck and tried to drag him forward. A very amazing person took him from them and took him to the vet. He didn't make it. The people who own puppy mills treat dogs like this homeless couple treated my dogs. Only using them for personal gain, greed... not even considering the people who could actually give them a good, healthy, and full life. These people are evil. Let's all stop them together.

      Puppies should be kept in proper conditions, not in metal cages where they could loose a limb.
