The Governor of PA: Make your PA Dog Law Enforcement Office enforce Puppy Mill regulations!

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.
