Western Wisconsin dog breeder ordered to pay for care of 69 neglected Labs
#stoppuppymills This horrible man is being charged in both civil and criminal suits after his puppy mill was shut down and the dogs seized. The civil charges order him to pay for the care of the animals that were rescued from his puppy mill. He will face 122 counts of animal cruelty in criminal court. Let's hope he gets the maximum sentence! Puppy mill operators such as this need to be used as an example!
The majority of puppy mills are located in the Midwest, but several hundred are also found in PA's Lancaster County, where Amish & Mennonite breeders flourish in "the puppy mill capital of the East." Thousands of Amish and Mennonite-owned puppy mills are found in Ohio and Wisconsin and New York's Finger Lakes Region. Holmes County, Ohio, population 40,000, now leads the pack with more than 500 kennels, with most being Amish-owned. Millersburg is particularly saturated with Amish-owned mills.
