It’s another bad grade for the America Kennel Club and the current rubber-stamp system of inspecting breeding operations. The Humane Society of the United States reported yesterday on a breeding kennel in Mississippi, where a former American Kennel Club champion dog was founding living in feces.
Wild Bill, an Australian Cattle Dog had been living with 60 other dogs on what is being described as a puppy mill.
In the report on his Humane Nation blog, Wayne Pacelle states:
Some of the worst facilities wave around their AKC credentials like a badge of honor, and draw consumers away from better sources of dogs, such as animal shelters and rescue groups and responsible breeders.
As is the case in greyhound racing, when a dog is no longer making money, it becomes disposable for the puppy-mill industry.
We need a system of regular inspections by qualified inspectors in every state in the nation.PACK MENTALITY BLOG: Compassion - teamed with Science and Logic
