Stop Letting Dogs Languish and Die in Abusive Breeding Facilities

Target: Eric Schmitt, Attorney General of Missouri

Goal: Prosecute and penalize kennel operators and breeders accused of harming countless dogs.

Multiple dogs were found dead at a McDonald County, Missouri breeder’s property. The breeder had apparently refused to let state Department of Agriculture officials inspect the property for over a year, and these officials seemingly did nothing in the interim. Over in Hickory County, Missouri, Cridder Creek Kennel owners reportedly flaunted a judgment banning them from breeding animals. When a task force finally rescued dogs from the premises, officials said “the severe neglect that these poor animals suffered is abhorrent and inexcusable. We will do everything in our power to ensure the rescued dogs are rehabilitated and given a second chance at a happier life.” Their alleged abusers received a fine and were once again ordered to close their doors. No further criminal penalty was mentioned.

For the past decade, Missouri has topped a notorious list of states with deplorable puppy mills. The state’s lackadaisical response to cases of suspected animal cruelty against dogs highlights that something is broken in the regional system. Only true and serious reform can reverse this tragic trend.

Sign the petition below to demand Missouri’s attorney general start pursing animal cruelty cases involving kennel operators and breeders with much stronger vigilance.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Schmitt,

McDonald and Hickory Counties were recently sites of massive animal rescues from allegedly negligent and abusive kennel operators and breeders. In both of these cases, the law enforcement and legal systems had lengthy prior knowledge of suspect activity. In fact, a court settlement had already taken place in one of the cases…a settlement seemingly willfully violated. This complete lack of enforcement of Missouri’s animal cruelty laws is one of the primary reasons why this state has earned the dishonor of the nation’s biggest and worst puppy mill production.

Animals should not have to die before real action is taken. These individuals are reportedly breaking the law, endangering innocent living beings, and getting away with a fine and a slap on the wrist time and again. Please make criminal charges with real jail time and real consequences a centerpiece of this state’s effort to safeguard animals from gross negligence and unchecked abuse.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Bastards!!!

  2. Negligent and abusive kennel operators and breeders must be HARSHLY PUNISHED and their “businesses” PERMANENTLY CLOSED. Animals shall NOT be VICTIMS of human greedy and sadistic psychopaths!
    MISSOURI tops a notorious list of states with deplorable puppy mills. Only true and serious reform can reverse this tragic trend.
    SHAME! SHAME! SHAME on Missouri, the state of animal-haters and animal-abusers!!!

    • Couldn’t say it better myself. Animal abusers should be tattooed and not allowed to keep animals ever again. If they are found to do so, they should be imprisoned AND fined very heavily as they have been making scads of money from these poor dogs.

    • 1000%. I have no words I can type her for how I feel about ALL breeders.

  3. shame on not only the state’s lack ofAll Animal Welfare laws but this entire countries lack of Animal Welfare! So many abusers have been cited and fined over the years by the government but nothing is ever done to take those animals away and protect them. I’m sure they’re getting their pockets lined in the process. We are a very immoral Nation when it comes to helping and protecting animals and Wildlife

  5. THESE BREEDERS ARE MURDERERS. SO TREAT THEM THAT WAY TOO AND ABUSE THEM TOO. NO MERCY AT ALL.

    RED FLAGS ALL OVER!!!. Department of Agriculture officials inspect the property and do NOTHING TO SAVE THESE DOGS. FIRE THEM ALL AND CHARGE THEM !!!!!!

    The kennel operators and breeders should all be charged and banned for life from every having anything to do with any animal again.

    Everyone failed these poor sweet little angels. THE LAW NEEDS TO SHUT ALL THESE PLACES DOWN …SO THAT ANIMALS ARE NOT LEFT TO DIE IN SPCA’S ETC…SO THAT WE DON’T HAVE OVER BREEDING. WHEN IS THE LAW GOING TO DO THEIR JOBS?????!! ANIMALS ARE SUFFERING BECAUSE OF YOUR CONTINUAL FAILURES!!

      The thing is here in Missouri they just don’t give a damn. I hate this state. And one day I’m getting the F away from these hillbillies.

    Here is Missouri it’s not just dogs abuse law enforcement ignore.
    They also ignore cat killing. My neighbor kicked a hole in my fence and baited a trapped and killed 6 of my cats since April. I finally saw him shoot Mr Motto Jasper county sheriff’s did nothing. I called Highway patrol and they too did nothing. So the man gets away with a crime and I know he’ll do it again.
    Even though we have laws against killing pets. It does no good if the cops don’t enforce the laws.

    • I’AM SO SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR CATS. I’D HIRE SOME GANG MEMBERS AND HAVE THEM BUST HIS WINDOWS AND FIRE THEIR GUNS AND SEE HOW THE MOTHER FUCKER LIKES IT. YOU SHOULD GO AND TALK TO THE MEDIA AND SPREAD THE WORD ON FACEBOOK, TWITTER AND WHOEVER WILL LISTEN AND TELL THEM HOW THESE WORTHLESS ‘JUSTICE’ SYSTEM IS DOING NOTHING EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE PAYING THEIR SALARIES. PRESIDENT TRUMP SIGNED A BILL INTO LAW MAKING ANIMAL ABUSE A FELONY. DO IT OTHERWISE THIS WILL CONTINUE. I WOULD BE SHOOTING UP THIS COWARD’S HOUSE. FROM NOW ON KEEP YOUR CATS INSIDE TO KEEP THEM SAFE. ANYTIME YOU SEE THIS COWARD DOING SOMETHING ILLEGAL-RECORD HIM AND PUT IT ON FACEBOOK.

  8. Missouri is governed by hacks. Animals being abused, tortured and slaughtered in astonishing numbers and no movement from legislators, courts and police. The fact that puppy mills have thrived for years in this state because the profit-driven have dominated in their pathetic system of government tells exactly where the stand in humanitarianism and intelligence.

    • Would Biden do anything to help these poor animals? It needs to be in. the world press, shame those in power into helping animals

  9. All involved in these horrors need to spend the rest of their lives in solitary as they are a menace to humans and animals alike. They have no morals or conscience and must be severely punished. IN MY OPINION

  10. Whitney Covert says:

    IM ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED, ASHAMED AND EMBARRASSED TO SAY BORN AND RAISED IN MISSOURI!!! WE HAVE TO MAKE A CHANGE, FOR THE BETTER!!!

    MANS BEST FRIEND DOES NOT DESERVE THIS…NO ANIMAL SHOULD LIVE A LIFE LIE THAT!

    Ok, the way I see it USA NEEDS
    ~STOP/BAN ALL ANIMAL BREEDERS (especially in MO) UNTIL ALL THE SHELTERS ARE EMPTY.
    ~MAKE IT A LAW YOU HAVE TO SPAY/NEUTER EVERY PET!

    ANYONE WHO VIOLATES AUTOMATICALLY GETS A HUGE FINE, GETS FELONY CHARGES FOR ALL OF IT, HAS TO SERVE A MAX 3 YEARS FEDERAL PRISON, AND NEVER TO OWN ANOTHER ANIMAL/PET AGAIN!!

    ENFORCE THIS NOW!

    YES MISSOURI IS A POOR STATE, YES BREEDING DOGS IS VERY EASY, THE DOGS DO THE WORK. BUT COME ON GET A REAL JOB! ALL THEY CARE ABOUT IS MONEY, THEY DONT CARE WHERE THE PUPPIES END UP AS LONG AS THEY GET THEIR MONEY!!!

    • All those involved should be shot at dawn – no ifs or buts just kill the heathens. If the state won’t , Animal Vigilantes should form a group and get them off the planet

  11. WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH AMERICA THE GREAT…..I THINK NOT!! THE BARBARIC THINGS THAT YOU ALLOW TO HAPPEN ARE BEYOND MOST PEOPLES UNDERSTANDING. FOR HEAVENS SAKE…YOU ARE NOT IDIOTS, SO WHY BEHAVE LIKE IGNORANT, WICKED MORONS TOWARDS ANIMALS.

    SHAME, SHAME, SHAME ON ALL OF YOU INVOLVED IN SUCH WICKED, CRUEL THINGS TOWARDS ANIMALS. CANT YOU LEAD THE WAY IN ANIMALS WELFARE FOR A CHANGE!!!!!

    Totally evil act filled with nothing but inhuman and cruel intentions.

  13. Eric Schmitt, Attorney General of Missouri

    I would put these Monster psychopathic bastards to death. What these lowlife pos deserve. Kill them. Then no more precious and innocent Dogs will suffer from their sadism and evilness.
