- Canadian Prime Minister
Puppy mills and kitten mills are facilities which overbreed dogs and cats strictly for greed. These animals are victims of unusually cruel treatment. Thousands of puppies and kittens are born each year, many to the same mother who is bred continuously until she eventually dies. These puppies and kittens are then sold to pet stores and sometimes the public via the internet. Most die shortly after. Those who are not sold to loving homes or pet stores, are auctioned off to research laboratories where they are experimented upon until death is the outcome.
The conditions in which these innocent dogs and cats are forced to live are beyond inhumane. They are locked in too small cages, the housing conditions are poorly ventilated with no heat in the winter or air in the summer. They eat, sleep and literally live in their own urine, feces and vomit.
The 'breeders' are unlicensed and irresponsible which ultimately results in some form of illness. These animals suffer from malnutrition, skin infections, eye, ear and/or teeth loss, depression, fear and various diseases with minimal or no medical attention. The list is endless. Some are lucky enough to be rescued and their lives saved, others meet a very different, very harsh fate.
On behalf of all the dogs and cats imprisoned in mills, please put an end to this heartbreak. Unfortunately, these dogs and cats cannot speak for their rights and their cries are unheard except by those inflicting their pain. They need us to speak out for them and save them from being victims of this life whose fate is torture and ultimately death.
We the undersigned implore you to take into consideration passing a criminal law which bans puppy mills nationwide and imposes stricter penalties to those who break this law. Further that you also impose a legal ban on sales of animals in retail establishments. We need to stop this unnecessary suffering of these animals who share our world.
Please hear my plea and the plea of so many others who speak on behalf of these dogs and cats who cannot speak for themselves. Leave the breeding to those who do it for the love of animals and not the love of greed.
Perhaps if the Canada passes this law, other countries will follow and we can put an end to this worldwide cruelty forever. Please give them the life they deserve and so desperately cry out for.
