Save Reportedly Sick and Dying Guinea Pigs and Rabbits From Breeding Facility

Target: Russell C. Redding, Secretary of Agriculture for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

Goal: Save more than a thousand reportedly sick and dying guinea pigs and rabbits at Pennsylvania breeding facility.

More than a thousand guinea pigs are suffering due to alleged horrific conditions at a licensed breeding facility in Pennsylvania. Per an investigative report, they are apparently sick and dying from untreated illnesses, dirty conditions, and lack of clean drinking water and food. They cannot survive in these conditions, and apparently, they aren’t. Both guinea pigs and rabbits are seemingly experiencing extreme hair loss, swollen feet, sore muscles, and skin and eye issues. The enclosures are reportedly filled with spiderwebs and holes large enough to allow the animals to escape.

Specific instances of abuse and neglect seemingly include a new-born guinea pig suffering from sunken and crusted shut eyes who is stuck in an enclosure with 13 other animals. Another newborn was found dead, apparently trampled by other animals. These enclosures are filled with bedding that is reportedly feces filled. Not only is this happening at this facility, but many across the state of Pennsylvania.

These breeders must be investigated for these conditions. Their apparent actions most certainly do not adhere to animal welfare standards. Per these reports, animals are dying, and rabbits and guinea pigs are suffering tremendously. We must save the animals. Sign the petition below to urge an investigation be opened and the animals be saved and safe elsewhere.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Russell C. Redding,

We demand an investigation be opened at a breeding facility in Pennsylvania where thousands of guinea pigs and rabbits are reportedly suffering from horrific conditions resulting in the death of innocent newborns. They are seemingly given no chance at a life and forced to live with untreated illnesses and dirty, hazardous conditions. Allowing allegedly abusive breeding facilities to keep these animals does nothing but harm so many of them and it is unacceptable what they are being subjected to.

These animals deserve a chance at a prosperous life where they are able to live freely and in healthy conditions. We demand that you open an investigation into this alleged cruelty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. It makes me laugh when we refer to something as being ‘Licensed’. What exactly does this mean? The only thing that comes to mind it that the authorities can lie back after as such is awarded. And, that’s exactly what happens as there are no checks as there should be and brand ‘Licensed’ covers a multitude of corrective measures that just don’t exist.

  2. I agree with Meryl. Why are there no checks done? Obviously the breeders in PA are not forthright. I used to live in PA but the state seems to be going downhill. They have questionable politicians and situations like this one seem to happen far too often. I guess there is a need for checks and balances. One thousand animals should not be languishing in Pennsylvania! Those who are not doing their jobs need to be fired for their hearts are not in the right place for the job. No matter the breeder they should be closed down permanently. And any agency representatives need not keep their jobs as they are not doing their jobs.
