Revoke All Pets Club's License to Sell Puppies

This petition has been created and signed by those who plead that the Connecticut Department of Agriculture: Licensing Division revoke All Pets Club's license to sell puppies in the state of Connecticut.

All Pets Club (with locations in Wallingford, Branford, North Windham and Southington) has been responsible for the sale of numerous sick (at times, fatally) puppies. Their puppies are purchased from puppy mills, many of which are widely known for their mistreatment of dogs and their puppies; however, the abuse does not stop once the puppies reach All Pets Club.

On May 1st, 2018, Meriden resident Bobby Arel purchased a nearly five month old Ori-pei from All Pets Club of Wallingford. Exactly one week later, puppy Akuma fell extremely ill. The veterinarian employed by All Pets Club sent her home, writing off her alarming symptoms (extreme lethargy, excessive drooling, complete loss of appetite, and control of bowels) as potential "growing pains" and prescribing an anti-inflammatory. The next day, as her condition worsened, Akuma experienced seizures and was transferred to the Animal Hospital of Rocky Hill (per All Pets Club), where she tragically passed after a few hours. When Mr. Arel attempted to retrieve Akuma's papers from the hospital, with proof of purchase in hand, the receptionist claimed the puppy was property of All Pets Club and would not release any information. 

Mr. Arel is not the first to suffer at the hands of All Pets Club's negligence and lack of respect for their customers. In 2016, Attorney Brooke Goff and two other families suffered the loss of a beloved puppy within 10 days of purchase from All Pets Club. Since then, Goff Law Group has had over 100 people come forward for their assistance against All Pets Club.

How many more families must suffer a loss before reform is forced upon All Pets Club, as well as the animal hospitals that take part in their malpractice? How many children must have a puppy they've fallen in love with ripped out of their life, due to the lies and greed of a large corporation? And how many dogs must suffer, unable to speak up for themselves, while they are treated like disposable income for the owners of All Pets Club?

This is an issue that must be brought to light and addressed. All Pets Club is guilty not only of the mistreatment of animals, but also of gross negligence of proper business ethic. It is unfair not only to the puppies that suffer, but also to Connecticut consumers who fall victim to their lies and manipulation.

PS: Papers from All Pets Club declare Akuma was transported/brokered through Pinnacle. Just a quick check shows Baker is a broker too. USDA license number 73B0204. She must use Pinnacle in Missouri as her transporter. She has older USDA inspection violations for her kennel "Okie Pets" in 2012, 2014 & 2015. She also had repeat violations and received an Official Warning from the USDA.
Unfortunately with our current presidential administration, the USDA inspection report website has gone "dark". You may be able to demand that All Pets provide you with Baker's 2016, 2017 & 2018 inspection reports, as by CT law they are not allowed to use breeders with a certain number of violations within the last 2 years.
