Target: Members of Congress
Goal: Crack down on cruel, unsanitary conditions in puppy mills that sell animals online
Congress has recently reintroduced the Puppy Uniform Protection and Safety (PUPS) Act, which would require commercial breeders that sell their animals via the Internet to be licensed and inspected. Federal oversight by the U.S. Department of Agriculture will hopefully crack down on unsanitary conditions and cruel treatment of the puppies.
Puppies sold online come from puppy mills, which are notorious for their unsanitary conditions and neglect of the animals. The puppies inside the mills often face overcrowding, a lack of veterinary care and cruel treatment. However, when the breeders post images of the puppies online so people can buy them, they post pictures of happy, healthy dogs in clean and comfortable conditions. This is false advertising and misleading to the consumers and it also allows these puppy mills to get away with neglect and cruelty.
The cruel treatment that goes on in puppy mills will hopefully decrease when the PUPS Act is enforced. Purchasing a puppy via a website without seeing it in person may not be the most ideal way to adopt an animal, but these puppy mills continue to profit that way. We need to ask Congress to ensure that the PUPS Act is passed. Sign the petition below to show your support.
The Puppy Uniform Protection and Safety (PUPS) Act will do a lot to save the animals in puppy mills. These puppies often see overcrowding, unsanitary conditions and a lack of veterinary care. The puppy mills don’t tell the consumers who purchase animals via the Internet, which leads to false advertising and complications once owners receive their puppies.
The PUPS Act will save puppies from these horrible conditions that puppy mills are notorious for. Inspections from the U.S. Department of Agriculture will force the owners of puppy mills to fix the disgusting conditions that the puppies are forced to live it. This will in turn create a better quality of life for the puppies so that they can live long, happy lives with their new owners.
Puppy mills will continue to exist is this act is enforced or not. By ensuring the PUPS Act sees the light of day, you will be saving the puppies that are already forced to live in puppy mills. We can’t stop puppy mills from existing, but we can stop the cruelty and neglect that goes on. We are asking you to please ensure this act is executed to all puppy mills.
