Help stop puppy mill breeders from parading as American Kennel Club approved breeders.

Please share and reblog.

“New accusations that one of the country’s largest organizations dedicated to dogs, the American Kennel Club, isn’t doing enough to protect animals. TODAY National Investigative Correspondent Jeff Rossen reports.”  

Do you know that the American Kennel Club has only nine inspectors for the entire United States of America?

In my opinion, this is NOT nearly enough inspectors to do site visits at even 10% of all AKC approved breeders. AKC pedigreed puppies should be bred for healthy lives and under humane conditions. Don’t the dogs and the dog buyers deserve this?

What do you think? 

Can 9 breeder inspectors protect all AKC registered breed dogs across American from unethical and inhumane puppy mill breeders?

AKC-registered breeders raising dogs in ‘miserable’ conditions

Help dog buyers stop buying puppy mill dogs approved by the American Kennel Club. Help dog lovers find breed rescue groups and shut puppy mills. No more animal cruelty under the AKC stamp of approval. Dogs lives and futures depend on us. Be their voice. Speak up. Write for dog rescue and adoption.

5 ways to prevent cruelty to animals

By Deborah Taylor-French http://www.dogleadermysteries.com

For 147 years, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA)  has kept its motto:

“We are their voice.”

Each April, Dog Leader Mysteries blog goes ORANGE for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month.

For puppies sake! Pet shops must stop selling pups.
For puppies sake! Pet shops must stop selling pups.

1 Adopt, don’t shop for your next pet. In the USA millions of pets die in animal shelters every year. The main reason these pets die is due to abandonment, getting lost, or pets families losing their homes. Also pet families may not be able to pay for health care for aging pets.  Homeless pets need our help.

The best way to stop puppy mills is never buy a pet online or in a pet shop.

2. Look for and only buy cruelty free products. Cosmetic companies have changed their laboratory testing on animals because of people who do not want rabbits, cats and dogs suffering in cages. Pets and lab animals suffer as creams, lotions or makeup gets rubbed into their eyes.

3. Never buy fur.  The fur trade has a long history of cruelty to animals. Animals hunted for fur coats or baby seals clubbed to death adds up to terrible cruelty. Write letters to retail stores that sell fur to stop. For every person who writes a letter to end the suffering of animals hunted or raised in cages for the fur trade, another hundred people believe this type of animal cruelty must stop.

4. Visit the ASPCA to learn more about what you can do for animals. The ASPCA Website hosts a page of free stuff like computer wallpapers and cut badges like the ones on my blog today.  Click for free stuff. http://www.aspca.org/about-us/aspca-april/

5. ASPCA Day on April 10 wear orange—the official color of the ASPCA—to commemorate the protection of animals.

Orange you gonna take me for a walk?
I love April.

Sydney rarely notices poppies, unless another dog has left him a message.

Stop Cruelty to Animals

I love all flowers in every color. One of the first flowers I learned to name was the California poppy, our state’s official flower. These wild poppies self-sow. Their seeds ride the wind then grow in-between rocks, weeds and garden plants. I like watching California poppies as  they poke their pale-green leaves up in our garden. I feel watching their rich color may rival to the thrill I feel when a hummingbird zooms close by. Native poppies sporting golden-orange. Their cheery waves makes a day in the Golden State of California live up to its name.

Wear orange when you walk your dog this April.  Show your true colors for animal welfare. If you look good in orange, you can get a t-shirt from the ASPCA Go Orange.

This April turn your Website orange!


Puppy Mill Awareness Day

In brief, Puppy Mills hurt dogs in several ways. Puppy Mills promote negative genetic traits, keep breeder dogs in inhumane conditions and sell puppies that often are ill or die soon after being purchased.
