Stop Keeping Puppies in Squalor and Filth to Raise “Purebred” Dogs

Target: Dennis B. Sprung, CEO of American Kennel Club

Goal: Stop supporting the cruel abuse and mistreatment of the millions of dogs confined to puppy mills.

Millions of innocent dogs are abused and mistreated in America’s puppy mills, all for the coveted title of “purebred.” The American Kennel Club organization is one of the biggest obstacles to permanently shutting down these puppy mills. Because they are a purebred dog registry, they rely on financial support from the breeders associated with the mills; this leads them to fight against proposed animal welfare laws that would save millions of dogs and puppies from these places.

Puppy mills are essentially factories, places where dogs are treated as objects rather than living things. They are forced to exist in squalor and locked in cramped cages. Mother dogs are forced to breed endlessly so their offspring can be sold for a tidy profit. Dogs and puppies bought from these mills are usually not healthy, carrying diseases or viruses due to the conditions they live in. For years, animal rights groups have been trying to shut these places down, to little avail.

Dogs deserve better than this. Sign this petition to urge the AKC to stop their reliance on and support of these horrible places.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Sprung,e

The American Kennel Club’s continued support of cruel puppy mills must stop. For years, animal rights groups have been trying to shut these places down due to the poor treatment of the animals living and bred within them. The poor creatures live in absolute squalor, kept in tight cages, and are forced to breed all for the sake of a profit. Puppies and dogs purchased from these places are often in poor health.

You must stop supporting this cruelty. There is no valid excuse for the way these dogs are treated. They are living creatures who deserve better than to be treated as breeding factories for the sake of a profit. The AKC must stop defending these places immediately so that the whole operation can be shut down, saving the lives of millions of dogs and puppies across the country.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Stop supporting the cruel abuse and mistreatment of the millions of dogs confined to puppy mills.You are another lowlife monster bastard who deserves to be put to death.

    All these torturing lowlife monsters who deliberately torture millions of precious and innocent dogs confined to these filthy animal torturing Puppy Mills of hell and terror must be brought to justice and jailed for life. Better still kill everyone of these animal torturing monsters from hell. An eye for an eye.

    Disgusting, all for the sake of what? Most certainly NOT for the welfare of the dogs. The AMC should be ashamed, and the CEO should be relieved of his position!

  4. The AKC is a worthless POS. They monitor nothing and enforce nothing all they want is a check! Worthless bastards!

  5. Jaime Perez says:

    The AKC needs to stop promoting the cruelty of innocent animals just to make a buck. Puppy mills are hell on Earth for the animals forced to live in them. They should all be banned.

  6. Debra Goldstein Lustig says:

    OUTLAW AND END PUPPY MILLS AND BACKYARD BREEDERS ONCE AND FOR ALL

  7. Shut down the AKC or charge them with animal endangerment. They are as guilty as the horrible puppy mill breeders who are worthless pieces of junk that need to be jailed.

  8. I have worked as a Forensic Mental Health Professional and trauma therapist for over 25 years. During this time, I have contracted with jails, prisons, and community corrections in various states, after working as a correctional officer for a few years. I can attest that there is a very strong correlation between the way people treat animals of any kind and the way they can all-too-easily, and without hesitation, remorse, or empathy, treat fellow human beings. If you would not want your son, daughter, sister, brother, grandchild, or parent treated this way, take a stand and sign every petition against animal abuse that you can find – wild and domestic, in the USA and across the world! YES, the pictures & videos are heart-wrenching but ignoring them does not solve the problem. Be brave for the innocent; when you ignore this cruel, heart-less behavior, you are giving more power to the abusers.

    When money speaks louder than morals, there is always a problem. We need to STOP letting ego, greed, and selfishness destroy the world.
