Fifteen dogs— 10 puppies and five adults — are lucky to have been rescued from an abusive breeder.
After a concerned citizen alerted authorities of a possible unlicensed puppy mill, authorities investigated and found that the breeder — who has yet to be named — had cruelly debarked at least three of his dogs. According to rescuers, they believe the breeder shoved a pipe-like object down their throats in order to damage their vocal chords.
There is no medical reason for this abuse whatsoever. The breeder, simply thought his dogs barking was a nuisance.
The inhumane manner in which this person debarked his dog could be a felony but the Lancaster County District Attorney's Office still hasn't decided what charges the breeder will actually face.
We must encourage the DA to punish this unlicensed breeder to the fullest extent of the law. They have already shown an utter disregard for the law by not being licensed and the grotesque way they treated the dogs in their care is so severe it deserves the maximum punishment.
Make sure the DA knows you want the breeder to face felony charges. Sign the petition and demand justice for the 15 abused dogs.
