Justice for 72 Dogs Allegedly Suffering in Cruel Puppy Mill

Target: Paul Connick Jr., District Attorney of Jefferson Parish, Louisiana

Goal: Seek the maximum possible penalty for the people involved in a suspected puppy mill where 72 dogs were being kept in deplorable conditions for the purpose of breeding and selling.

Over 70 dogs were reportedly seized from a suspected puppy mill business called Hurricane Bullies. Also seized were 19 feral cats who were locked in kennels. At least two of the dogs died, and many of the others were suffering from health conditions like heart murmurs, said officials. Their ears were also cropped and their tails docked. Officials found two separate houses where the puppies were reportedly being held. According to authorities, one of the houses had 48 dogs, including 33 breeding females. The dogs found in the second house were reportedly kept in deplorable conditions, and had little to no food or water. Authorities also said that the odor of ammonia was overwhelming, Other signs of this being a puppy mill included items found by authorities such as prescription pain medication for dogs, empty bottles of injectable antibiotics, prenatal vitamins, homemade incubators, and heart-worm medications.

The Hurricane Bullies website had the American bully puppies for sale between $4,000 – $5,000. Six people are facing charges for their involvement in the alleged puppy mill. The animals are currently being kept at an animal control facility, but the owner has already filed for a motion to get them back. If this happens, these innocent animals will likely suffer, and even more will end up dead. To make matters worse, the people involved in this cruel business tend to be repeat offenders. That’s why it’s imperative that we pressure authorities to see to it that these people are never allowed to harm any more animals. Please sign the petition below to demand that they be given the maximum penalty possible.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Connick Jr.,

Over 70 dogs were seized when authorities found what appears to be a puppy mill business where American bullies were being sold for thousands of dollars. The dogs were being held in two separate houses, according to authorities, who say at least two of the dogs died. The rest of the animals were kept in deplorable conditions and most of them had serious health conditions like heart murmurs.

This is a disgusting form of animal cruelty, breeding innocent animals and forcing them to endure suffering just for money. We, the undersigned, are calling on you to see to it that these people are not able to become repeat offenders and harm more animals. We urge you to seek the maximum possible penalty for the people involved in the suspected puppy mill.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Please do NOT let those people have the puppies back. (or any other animal for that matter) – They care only about money and not the welfare of any creature!

    these so called human beings should really be made to pay for the sickening way they have treated helpless animals, just being told off is not enough, people must soon understand that animals have feelings and need to be treated as we would treat any one we care for. they are the scum of the earth, all down to money, make the suffer.

  3. The horrendous abuse of dogs – and cats in this case – by greedy sadistic lowlifes running puppy mills must end!
    Why aren’t all puppy mills just shut down?

  4. Don’t allow the “owner” to reclaim the dogs after the condition in which he kept them. He’s a lowlife who’s too lazy to earn a living but instead exploit dogs for profit.

  5. SHUT DOWN AND BAN ALL PUPPY MILLS, THERE ARE SO MANY HOMLESS DOGS THAT NEED GOOD HOMES THAT IF A PERSON WANTS A DOG THEY SHOULD ADOPT A PUPPY FROM A HOMLESS SHELTER, PUPPY MILLS ARE EVIL CRUEL PLACES AND THE PEOPLE WHO OWN THEM ARE ONLY OUT TO MAKE MONEY, THEY DONT CARE ABOUT THE WELFARE OF THE DOGS, SHUT THESE PLACES DOWN AND BAN ALL PUPPY MILLS NOW.
