Target: David Nuttall and Ivan Lewis, MPs of Bury Council and Greater Manchester, UK
Goal: Stop the abuse of puppies at Bentley Hall Farm and prosecute the owners for breeding violations
Border Collie, Labrador, and Alaskan Malamute puppies are being separated from their mothers and kept in dark barns with insufficient provisions at Bentley Hall Farm. The owner of the farm sees nothing wrong with the way he is breeding puppies, but many people have complained that puppies bought from this farm have severe aggression problems and often die within a few days. Stop the abuse at this illegal puppy mill and shut down Bentley Hall Farm
Bentley Hall Farm’s breeding license lapsed in August 2011. However, the Bury Council in Greater Manchester, United Kingdom has not yet prosecuted the farm for violating the local breeding act, which carries a maximum punishment of a £2,500 fine and three months jail time.
Despite complaints that puppies from this farm have extraordinary high death rates and aggression problems, owner Richard Speakman has shown no remorse and no plans to obtain a new license, as required by law.
Sign the below petition to stop the suffering of hundreds of puppies every year at Bentley Hall Farm. The owners of this illegal puppy farm must be prosecuted for operating a puppy mill without a license and without humane treatment. We must ensure that the puppies from this farm are removed immediately and relocated to safe environments.
Dear Mr. Nuttall and Mr. Lewis,
Not only has Bentley Hall Farm been operating without a breeding license since August 2011, but they are also abusing their dogs. Puppies are being separated from their mothers and they are not being provided with adequate bedding of straw on the floor. Many people who have bought puppies from Bentley Hall Farm have reported their puppies dying within days of adoption.
I am urging you to pay a visit to Bentley Hall Farm and investigate the conditions these puppies are living in. You must enforce the relevant breeding license law to ensure that all breeding farms are operating within the law. If your investigation of Bentley Hall Farm confirms the complaints of the public, see to it that the owner is prosecuted with fines and imprisonment. With your help, we can ensure the puppies in this illegal operation are kept safe from harm and delivered to loving families.
