Shut Down PUPPY MILLS in Quebec (biggest provider in North America)

    1. Petition by

      Meaghan Morris

Quebec is the puppy mill capital of North America. This is owing to the fact that Quebec has poor legislation and enforcement surrounding commercial dog breeding operations. The consequence is that there are about 2200 puppy mills in Quebec alone. Half of the canines bread there are sold outside the province to pet stores and wholesalers.
As for the pups, they are removed from their mother when they are just barely weaned and taken to pet stores. Some pups do not survive the long truck rides. The surviving dogs are put up for sale, and sold to any person willing to pay for them regardless of their ability to take care of the pet.
Many people are unaware that when they purchase dogs at certain pet stores, they were bred in puppy mills. Furthermore these puppies will often develop genetic defects or other health problems due to over-breeding, inbreeding, and unsanitary conditions at the puppy mills.
Currently, the federal animal cruelty laws offer little punishment for puppy mill owners; therefore the breeders pay the fine and continue breeding.
Together let’s pressure the Quebec government to draft new animal welfare regulations to enforce harsher penalties for those who run puppy mills. Even more importantly let’s shut down puppy mills in Quebec altogether.

      Il faut renforcer les lois afin de mieux protéger les animaux. Du même coup, il faut sévir et empêcher les gens de tenir des chenils où les animaux vivent l'enfer. Il est grand temps d'agir.

      There is no reason to breed all these dogs that will be put to death or die inhumanely.

      Any creature who is forced to entertain humans are not treated fairly, and it's an outrage that humans still think they can profit from this cruel activity
